The Pro-woman Pro-lifer has a new post up about the Church and abortion. The situation described is of a young woman whose main reason for considering abortion is that she doesn't want to be subjected to the gossip and judgment she expects that she would encounter within her church, if the church members were to learn of the pregnancy.

Over the last few decades, has the stigma attached to unwed high school and college pregnancies changed much?

Coming from a family that supported abortion as clearly the best option for out-of-wedlock pregnancies, I know that there are different kinds of stigma. In mine, people who worried about out-of-wedlock sex were regarded as laughable. There was no stigma attached to becoming pregnant...the stigma in my family and in the social circles we were part of was directed toward girls who didn't do the smart thing and have an abortion.

We have a lot of work to do, all around.
