Evidence-Based Answers to Abortion Myths

In this article I show what untruths and myths are used by the religious conservative right and how much money they spend to discourage women from having abortions. Importantly, they also use unethical tactics, such as deceiving pregnant women into thinking they are going to an abortion clinic, when in reality they are backstage or crisis pregnancy centres (CPCs), which mimic abortion clinics and in which pregnant women are presented with scientifically unsubstantiated claims and are scared into having an abortion. What are these untruths that have been promulgated by right-wingers for decades? Abortion is murder; the fetus‘s heartbeat at 18 days means it is a person; the fetus feels pain; abortion causes breast cancer; abortion is dangerous; abortion causes post-abortive syndrome; post-abortion trauma syndrome, the abortion repeal myth and crisis pregnancy centres (CKN) are copying abortion clinics.
