Why You are an Abortion Beneficiary

Mar 11, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Regardless of political affiliation, religion or personal experience, every person is an abortion beneficiary. Whether you are pro-choice or anti-choice, you benefit from abortion.

By definition, “beneficiary” means: a person who derives advantage from something.

1 in 4 women over the course of her life will have an abortion.

Statistically, this means…

…you know someone who has had an abortion
…you were equally responsible for someone’s need to have an abortion
…you *are* someone who has had an abortion

Access to abortion drives the global economy. We must protect it.
