Welcome to the web's most complete source of information on abortion's impact on women, men, families and society.
The Elliot Institute is the world's leading source of research and information on the physical and psychological risks of abortion and the epidemic of unwanted, coerced and forced abortions. Our mission is to help people understand that abortion does not help women, but that it exploits and harms the unborn child, the parents, and all involved.
This site contains more than 500 links to information on original academic research, news, articles, commentary, resources and the personal stories of those who have been involved in abortion. The links on the side will help you navigate this site.
You can also find out more information at the special projects and sites listed below the newsletter box.
Join the Church Awareness Project
Join our new project to raise awareness in our churches that most abortions are unwanted or coerced and that abortion harms not only unborn children, but also the mothers, fathers, families and others involved. Learn how you can help your church to offer hope and healing those at risk of abortion or those who are already hurting.
Abortion is The UnChoice™
Few people know that most abortions are unwanted or coerced. Coercion and even force don't happen just in extreme cases or oppressive countries– it happens everyday in our own families and communities.
The UnChoice Campaign documents the epidemic of unwanted, coerced and forced abortions, as well as the serious, even deadly, risk of harm to women, men and families touched by abortion. Based on new research and expert advice, it shows why Abortion is The UnChoice.TM
Find information, research, free educational and public awareness resources and more at www.TheUnChoice.com. We encourage individuals from all "sides" of this issue to take a closer look at abortion's risk to the rights and lives of both the unborn and women and its impact on many others.
At www.AbortionRisks.org, users can find and contribute information about academic research on post-abortion issues. It is the home of the Thomas W. Strahan Memorial Library, the web's most complete bibliography of published studies on the risks of abortion. Please help us keep this site current by contributing information on new research.
