Men are victims of abortion too

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 upon:
  • 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.
