an upcoming lecture series that will feature Congressman Chris Smith and the Marriage and Religion Research Institute’s Patrick Fagan, the Family Research Council has dropped a few intriguing facts unearthed by new research. Among them:
* Instead of the figure abortion proponents regularly cite (that one-third of all women have had an abortion), the actual number is one-sixth.
*Almost three-fourths of abortions are performed on women who engaged in sexual intercourse at age 16 or younger.
* 40% of women who begin sexual intercourse very early (ages 12 to 14) end up experiencing an abortion.
* Contrary to frequent claims, there is no substantial difference of income status in women who have abortions.
