A Hidden Shame?

Pia de Solenni’s article in NRO today had a startling statistic of which I was heretofore unware: “Approximately 40 percent of American women under 45 have had at least one abortion.”

Does anyone know if this is really true? I’ve heard numbers of this kind for the former Soviet Union, but I didn’t realize it was so widespread in the U.S. If it is true, the ramifications of such brutality must be having an unfathomable affect on our country’s moral character.

  1. I can’t verify those statistics, but over a decade ago I heard that at least 1 in 6 women in the Church have experienced abortion, and a friend who works with post-abortion ministry said her experience was the number was much higher.
