Thanks to Jill Stanek for the hat tip! They still think they can reduce the stigma...good luck with that!
Researchers look at abortion 'stigma'
CINCINNATI, June 29 (UPI) -- U.S. and British researchers say they are examining the social issues surrounding abortion and the stigma sometimes associated with terminating a pregnancy.
Danielle Bessett, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Cincinnati, and colleagues at The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, the University of Cincinnati, the University of California, San Francisco, the Guttmacher Institute in New York, Goldsmiths College, University of London and Center for the Study of Women, University of California, Los Angeles, say there is little research on abortion stigma.
"What does exist focused on women who have had abortions and on their experiences," Bessett says in a statement. "We're looking at stigma in a broader context."
