Witnesses ask U.S. Senate for research into side-effects of abortion on women.
This is quite an informative account of the hearing held last week before the U.S. Senate subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space.
U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (Democrat-New Jersey) used his platform there to try to dissuade his fellow senators from taking an interest in funding research on the impact of abortion on women. Would you like to write to him? Do that here.
Another witness, Roselyn Smith-Withers of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), told the subcommittee that she had never met a woman who regretted her abortion, but had "met many women who regretted having children."
Here's a link to the RCRC's press release about what Rev. Smith-Withers told the subcommittee. (It doesn't mention the comment about women regretting having children.)
The RCRC does not provide an easy way to communicate with its spokespeople--the best you can do is send an email here, and hope that they forward it. Let me know if any of you get a response. I'll do the same.
