Cecile Richards: Restricting access to safe, legal abortion care does not lower abortion rates.

Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America

In countries where abortion is illegal ─ which we are close to becoming ─ abortion rates are actually higher…Evidence shows that restricting access to safe, legal abortion care does not lower abortion rates. It just forces women to search for clandestine and unsafe abortion.

    I am a forensic nurse with the Rape Crisis Center in Volusia, Flagler and St Johns Counties in Florida. We know all too well the battle for women’s services as we struggle even to this day with lack of funding, lack of knowledge among the population and most critically lack of legislative support. Our Gov. Scott cut Women’s services funding, and that included all services. His public explanation for his actions ,in which he spefically singled out Rape Crisis services, was that “they don’t need it”.
    What kind of world are they trying to create by stepping back to the dark ages in the treatment of women!!! How can any woman believe she is worth caring about when our “men” won’t even help?
    God Bless the thinkers and the fighters for Women’s rights…again!!!
