Abortion Clinic regulation Sidewalk Counseling

Questions women ask before getting an abortion

RH Reality Check, an abortion-rights blog, features news and commentary that can be quite provocative. For example, one post entitled A Different Type of Sidewalk Counseling provides commentary on what women seeking abortions ask other women who they know have had abortions. The questions the author lists undercuts claims by abortion rights advocates that women know all they need to know when they walk in the door of an abortion clinic.
