Irreconcilable. Fifty-four percent of all women who become pregnant each year in
the United States neither intend nor want these pregnancies to occur. Forty-
seven percent of these women, or about 1.6 million women, will choose to
resolve their unintended or unwanted pregnancies through abortion (Gold 1990,
11). The reasons why they will choose abortion over birth will vary. Many of these
women will ...

The Commission of Human Rights interpreted the language of Article 8 as
meaning 'that not every regulation of the termination of unwanted pregnancy
constitutes an interference with the right to respect for the private life of the
mother, in that Article 8, paragraph 1, could not be interpreted as meaning that
pregnancy and its termination are, as a principle, solely a matter of the private life
of the mother; and that therefore the ... legal rules in force in German law ... do not
interfere with their ...

It has been an important, but unpleasant, chapter in the history of American
public policy. A fuller discussion of this topic, of course, would include
consideration of policy options that reduce the extent of unwanted pregnancies
and policy options that soften the blow for those electing not to terminate their
pregnancies, but such a consideration serves only to expand controversial issues
. Policy options that would enlarge income support programs for those unable to
work and care for ...

by the mother during pregnancy is a particularly important risk factor (e.g.,
McGloin et al. 2006; Wakschlag et al. 2002). The Northern Finland Birth Cohort
Study of over 5,600 males showed that maternal smoking during pregnancy
doubled the risk of violent or persistent offending by their sons, after controlling
for other biopsychosocial risk factors (Rasanen et al. 1999). When maternal
smoking was combined with a teenage mother, a singleparent family, and an
unwanted pregnancy, ...

Because pluralistic moral views derive from our cultural pluralism, especially
religious pluralism, our society has to develop a public policy that will allow us to
disagree—even on the bitterly contested question of ending unwanted
pregnancy. . . . It is a policy which neither encourages nor discourages abortion. It
would protect the right of those morally opposed to abortion by offering adequate
maternal and child-welfare services. It would protect the right of physicians,
nurses, and ...

Traditional moral views - partly buttressed by religion, partly independent of it -
continue to exist and to shape public opinion. In particular, the data show that
sexual restrictiveness is an important source of opposition to legalised abortion.
We have argued that this represents an attempt at social control through the
threat of unwanted pregnancy to discourage sexual indulgence. In addition,
opposition to women working is a minor source of opposition to legalised
abortion. We have ...

The passage of the Family Planning Services and Popu-lation Research Act of
1970 (Public Law 91—572), by overwhelming majorities of both houses of
Congress, attests to the new situation and suggests its potential: for the first time,
public policy can become a positive force to help Americans avoid unwanted
pregnancy. This occurs at a time when the technology of fertility control makes it
possible to at least envision the virtual elimination of unwanted pregnancy as a
realistic ...
