A new survey finds 51 percent of American women believe abortion should be outlawed or limited to instances of rape, incest or when the pregnancy threatens the life of the mother. Kim Gordon, the executive director of the Iowa Right to Life Committee, says after 30 years of experimentation with the “social propaganda of the pro-choice movement” women are now concluding that abortion’s been “nothing but harmful to them” and to society. Gordon says she herself had an abortion and regrets it. Gordon says about 85 percent of women who have an abortion regret it and suffer from it for the rest of their lives. The group which commissioned the survey — the Center for the Advancement of Women — is led by a woman who served as Planned Parenthood’s president for 14 years. Planned Parenthood points to another question in the same survey to which women responded that 41 percent consider protecting abortion rights a priority.
