PIORRE, Ill., Apr 22 ( – Female prison inmates and post-abortion prison counsellors are reporting that extremely large portions of incarcerated women have had abortions. The Washington Times reported last week that an inmate who pleaded for post-abortion counselling told one counsellor that “easily 60 percent to 80 percent of this prison’s population have had abortions.” Furthermore, counsellors who have counselled hundreds of inmates for post-abortion stress say that they have “never met a woman in prison who doesn’t blame her incarceration partly on past abortions.”
