A conference was held earlier this week in Chicago to highlight the little-acknowledged fact that men are victims of abortion too. The conference, entitled "Reclaiming Fatherhood: A Multifaceted Examination of Men Dealing with Abortion
", was organised by the National Office of Post-Abortion Reconciliation & Healing and sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago.
SPUC, in cooperation with our sister organisation British Victims of Abortion (BVA)
, have also been highlighting the effect of abortion
- men who are excluded from the abortion decision
- men who are against abortion or what one would term pro-life
- married men whose spouses abort against their will
- men who are ambivalent about the abortion decision.
