Common Myths About Abortion

While the 1988 Morgentaler decision secured the right to legal abortion in Canada, barriers still exist that can make accessing an abortion difficult. One of the main barriers to abortion include a number of commonly-held myths about abortion. This document is intended to help debunk and challenge these myths.

MYTH: People use abortion as a means of birth control / people won’t bother with contraception if abortion is easily available.

Everyone makes decisions that are informed by their current circumstances and what resources are available to them to keep themselves healthy and thriving. This includes decisions we make when it comes to choosing a method of birth control. Typically, obtaining contraception is easier than accessing abortion services and there is no evidence that shows people useabortion as a primary method of birth control.

That said, having access to one service does not mean we might not need access to the other. Abortion is one part of a comprehensive package of sexual health services. Most people who get abortions report using contraception during the month they became pregnant. No one can assume or know the reasons why someone may face an unplanned pregnancy. Needing an abortion may be due to contraceptive failure (i.e., a condom breaking, getting pregnant despite being on the pill, etc.), a lack of access to accurate reproductive and sexual health information, a lack of access to accessible and affordable birth control methods, or sexual assault. Regardless of the circumstances, people facing unplanned pregnancies have a right to access high-quality reproductive health care services, including abortion services.

MYTH: People have abortions for frivolous reasons.

While women are not the only people who have abortions, 1 in 3 women will have an abortion before the age of 45. It is a very common procedure. People who have never needed an abortion are sometimes curious or make assumptions about why people make the choice to have one. The reality is, people get abortions for a myriad of reasons.

Making a choice about abortion, adoption, or parenting is based on individual life circumstances. Many people will choose to have an abortion because their social, economic, or health circumstances make them unable or unwilling to continue a pregnancy or raise a child at that moment, or ever. Others may feel it is important to time and space the number of children born into their family to ensure that all their children are properly cared for. Others may have become pregnant following a sexual assault or reproductive coercion. Others may have been told the catastrophic news that the fetus they are carrying has a lethal abnormality. Others may be going through a disruption of some sort, like unemployment, a move, or domestic violence.

While the range of emotions one may feel when having to make a decision about terminating a pregnancy vary widely, the complexity of factors influencing one’s decision to have an abortion means this is a decision that no one else but the person having to make that choice is in a position to evaluate. People know best about what to do about their unintended pregnancy.

MYTH: Because there is no abortion law in Canada, abortions are common through all nine months of pregnancy.

The vast majority of abortions (over 90%) occur in the first twelve weeks of pregnancy (the first trimester). While there are no legal limits to when an abortion can be performed in Canada, each abortion provider can impose a gestational limit as a part of their practice depending on their training and the facilities available to them. This means that access to abortion beyond a certain point in a pregnancy may be more or less difficult depending on where the person is located. Currently, no abortion provider is listed as offering the procedure past 23 weeks and 6 days in Canada.

MYTH: They were irresponsible/promiscuous, let them pay for their mistake or bad behavior.

The myth that those who choose to access abortion have to do so because they are promiscuous and/or irresponsible over-simplifies what leads to people facing unintended pregnancies. All kinds of people, from diverse and varied backgrounds, experience unintended pregnancy. Contraception is not always 100% available and effective and people are not always in a position to consent to sex. Studies have shown that between half and two-thirds of people who have an abortion were using contraception at the time they became pregnant. Sex and contraceptive use are areas informed and impacted by the circumstances of people’s lives, including by factors like their health (irregular periods, menopause, etc.), the relationships they are in, the supports they have, resources available, substance use, medical conditions and stress, among other things.

Furthermore, sex, as well as contraceptive use, is not always voluntary. Many people seeking abortion have not been in a position where they could freely agree to sex or use their contraceptive method of choice. This may apply to people who are in or outside of a relationship.

As for the myth that people who need abortions are promiscuous, this one relies on the sexist trope that women are either “good” or “bad” and on our collective discomfort with sex and sexuality. Sex-negativity, the belief that sex is inherently bad, is deeply intertwined with our culture. Sex and women’s bodies are often used in arguments about morality. Women are often judged harshly in relation to their sexuality, in ways in which men are not.

MYTH: Those who have abortions are harmed psychologically by their experience.

All significant life decisions can bring a range of emotions. No evidence has been found to support the existence of “post-abortion syndrome,” the controversial term coined to describe the alleged psychological and emotional difficulties people face after an abortion. While everyone may respond differently to their abortion, depending on many factors including the support they receive from family and friends, there is a greater risk of psychological harm when a person chooses to have an abortion but is refused one than if they are provided with timely and compassionate abortion care.

The reality is, whenever studies are done with people who have accessed abortion, a majority of people report that they did not find abortion emotionally or psychologically harmful. Although some people find it stressful or difficult in the short-term, most cope positively and do not experience long-term problems.

MYTH: Abortion is dangerous to your health.

This is false – an early abortion is many times safer than childbirth. Anti-choice groups often claim that abortions cause damage due to uterine scarring and cervical damage, but statistics indicate that complications of abortion are rare – only about 0.5% of abortions result in complications, and these are generally minor and treatable, such as infection. There is no medically accepted evidence that shows any link between abortion and any type of illness or disease. Myths exist that attempt to link abortion and breast cancer, among other diseases, but these claims are unsubstantiated by scientific data.

MYTH: Having an abortion will make you unable to get pregnant again.
Having an abortion does not impact one’s ability to reproduce in the future. A first-trimester abortion is a safe and simple medical procedure, and while some false and fabricated claims link abortion with miscarriage or infertility, they are unsubstantiated by scientific data. While in the past people faced potential risks of physical damage and infertility due to unsafe abortions being performed by unqualified physicians, this was largely the result of abortion being driven underground through its criminalization. The decriminalization of abortion means that trained providers now perform the procedure under the same high-quality conditions as other health care procedures.

MYTH: Abortion targets mostly female fetuses.

In recent years, anti-choice activists have been propagating the myth that abortion disproportionately targets female fetuses. This tactic relies on the language of human rights and feminism to try and limit access to abortion for all people when there is no evidence supporting their claims. Firstly, upwards of 90% of abortions happen before the end of the first trimester and so, well before people can find out the sex of the fetus. While sex-selective abortion in Canada may take place in some instances, it is incredibly rare and the reasons why people may make that choice are varied. In the cases of sex selective abortions happening because a family may favor one sex over the other, the solution is not a blanket ban on abortion, but rather to challenge societal attitudes that favour giving birth to sons over daughters.

MYTH: Abortion destroys the family unit/is anti-parenthood.

Abortion and parenthood are not in opposition to each other. Many of the people who access abortion are already parents. Their decision is often influenced by the desire to ensure they can take the best possible care of the child or children they already have. Parents who choose abortion fully understand what parenting entails and what is needed to adequately care for another child. Family planning can strengthen family life as it means people can plan the number, spacing and timing of their children.

For people who do not wish to become parents themselves, forcing pregnancy and parenthood on them would in no way strengthen the concept of family life. People are best positioned to decide how and with whom they wish to form a family.

MYTH: There is no need for abortion when contraceptives are easily available.

This statement ignores the fact that all contraceptives, even when properly and consistently used, occasionally fail. Good sexual health education that teaches individuals how to use contraception is lacking in many schools, communities and homes, which leads many people to use contraception incorrectly or relying on ineffective methods. Moreover, contraceptives are not always made easily accessible, nor are they always affordable.

MYTH: Instead of abortions, people should place their unwanted babies for adoption.

Adoption is one choice people have when they face an unintended pregnancy and they do not wish to parent the child. For those who wish to choose adoption, they should have all the necessary support and resources to ensure they, the child and the adoptive family are well and thrive. That said, many anti-choice activists aim to present adoption as a “middle-ground” people should choose to reduce abortion rates, but adoption and abortion should not be presented as equivalent options.

To put a baby up for adoption means that the person who faces an unintended pregnancy must carry the pregnancy to term. Pregnancy and birth can have a profound effect on someone’s health even years after childbirth. Pregnancy and birth also carry far more risk than a first trimester abortion. Some individuals cannot carry out a pregnancy due to health reasons, work, their family situation, or childcare responsibilities. For some, carrying that pregnancy to term and relinquishing the baby can be traumatic.

Adoption is an important option for people who face an unintended pregnancy but it is not equivalent to an abortion and is a very personal choice that can only be made by the person who is pregnant.

MYTH: Abortion is easily available if I decide to have one.

While abortion is legal in Canada, many barriers prevent individuals from accessing abortion when they need one. Abortion services are only available in 1 out of every 6 hospitals, many require doctor’s referrals, and the majority of providers are located in urban centres within 150km of the American border. This means that those in northern, remote, or rural communities must often travel long distances to access abortion. Other barriers include unexpected costs and travel times, accommodation costs, reciprocal billing issues, and anti-choice individuals and organizations providing misleading information.

MYTH: Abortion kills an unborn child and is morally wrong.

In the first trimester, there is an embryo, which develops into a fetus after the end of the second month of gestation. In these early stages of pregnancy, the fetus is not an autonomous being. At the time when almost all abortions are performed, the fetus is not viable, meaning it could not survive on its own outside of the womb. Using inflammatory words like “killing” or “murder” to describe abortion inaccurate equates an embryo – something which has the potential to become a person – with an actual person. It then pits this potential existence with the rights and bodily autonomy of an actual person who is alive and living in the world and who can make decisions about what is best for their bodies, their lives and their families. Both the Canadian Medical Association and the Supreme Court of Canada recognize that personhood begins at birth. Furthermore, morals are subjective – the idea that abortion is “morally wrong” is a personal viewpoint that cannot be argued with scientific or medical evidence.

MYTH: Criminalizing abortion will stop abortion.

Abortion rates in countries where abortion is illegal are approximately the same as in countries where abortion is permitted. This proves that even when the procedure is illegal, individuals will find ways to terminate a pregnancy. Criminalizing abortion will not stop abortions, but it will stop safe abortions. Canadian history shows that people will use dangerous methods to self-induce an abortion, or visit unregulated abortion providers, in regions where abortion is not legal and accessible. These unsafe abortions can result in hemorrhaging, infertility and death.

MYTH: Pro-choice just means “pro-abortion.”

Pro-choice individuals believe in all aspects of sexual and reproductive health and rights, including the belief that an individual faced with an unintended pregnancy should be able to make their own decision about whether or not to continue the pregnancy to term. Pro-choice people recognize and support individuals in making their own choice when it comes to the three options that exist when facing an unplanned pregnancy: abortion, adoption, and parenting. To be pro-choice means to be pro-abortion when people need to access them and being pro-choice supports for parents and families when people choose to continue a pregnancy.

MYTH: Giving young people information about sexuality and abortion encourages them to have sex and engage in promiscuous behaviour.

Studies clearly indicate that effective and comprehensive sexual health education, including information on contraception and abortion, encourages individuals to make empowered and knowledgeable decisions about their sexual health and are better able to access and use contraception and practice safer sex.

Why Abortion Should Not Be An Option

Over the years, a portion of society has supported a law in which women are able to decide what to do with their bodies and that includes abortion. But practicing abortion is no different than killing.

It is undeniable that a woman should have the right to decide, but in the case of abortion, that should not be the case for multiple reasons.
First, practicing abortion is synonymous to killing a person. People might disagree with this statement and claim that abortion is practiced at an early stage of the pregnancy, making it OK since the fetus is not fully developed.

The problem is that you’re still killing a living thing that has the potential of becoming a human being. And that doesn’t make it any different than killing someone, which is a crime.

Furthermore, for many people, life begins at conception, meaning the moment the fetus is formed, then it has the right to life.

Supporters of abortion claim that women should have the right to abort the child if conceived through an undesired way, such as rape. Sometimes women are not prepared to take on a responsibility of being a mother, especially when it was not their intention, but there are solutions like adoption.

Abortion should never be an option simply because it was a mistake and the parents want to find the easy way out of the responsibility of parenthood.

Couples or women, who have to make the decision on whether to abort, should be held accountable for their actions, and as a result, should give birth to the child. This should be the case because at the time that the couple decided to have sexual intercourse, they knew of the risk. Yet, they still went ahead. It’s unfair for the innocent child to pay for the actions of his/her parents.

Practicing abortion is also problematic in the sense that it eliminates the potential of future societal contributions of a human being. People might argue that it’s a hypothetical, but it’s a possibilty that has the same chance of being or not being true.

No one knows if God sent a child to have a positive impact on humanity; the world will never know that child’s potential.

One source many people believe in is the Bible. According to its sixth commandment, “Thou shall not kill.”

This commandment is significant because all beings have the same right to live. Whether a fetus or a 40-year-old, no one should judge or determine one’s ability to live.

Claims on how the child was conceived such as “it was a rape,” or “it was a mistake,” should not be taken into consideration because there are solutions such as adoption. So let’s not deny the right to life to an innocent child who has no fault in the mistakes others have made.

Considering Abortion

Is abortion the right option for me?

Abortion is very common, and people have abortions for many different reasons. Only you know what’s best for you, but good information and support can really help you make the decision that is best for your own health and well-being.

Why do people decide to have an abortion?

If you’re thinking about having an abortion, you’re so not alone. Millions of people face unplanned pregnancies every year, and about 4 out of 10 of them decide to get an abortion. Some people with planned pregnancies also get abortions because of health or safety reasons. Overall, about 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old.

Sometimes, the decision is simple. Other times, it’s complicated. But either way, the decision to have an abortion is personal, and you’re the only one who can make it.

Everyone has their own unique and valid reasons for having an abortion. Some of the many different reasons people decide to end a pregnancy include:

They want to be the best parent possible to the kids they already have.
They’re not ready to be a parent yet.
It’s not a good time in their life to have a baby.
They want to finish school, focus on work, or achieve other goals before having a baby.
They’re not in a relationship with someone they want to have a baby with.
They’re in an abusive relationship or were sexually assaulted.
The pregnancy is dangerous or bad for their health.
The fetus won’t survive the pregnancy or will suffer after birth.
They just don’t want to be a parent.

Deciding to have an abortion doesn’t mean you don’t want or love children. In fact, 6 out of 10 people who get abortions already have kids — and many of them decide to end their pregnancies so they can focus on the children they already have. And people who aren’t already parents when they get an abortion often go on to have a baby later, when they feel they are in a better position to be a good parent. The bottom line is, deciding if and when to have a baby is very personal, and only you know what’s best for you and your family.

What can I think about to help me decide?

Family, relationships, school, work, life goals, health, safety, and personal beliefs — people think carefully about these things before having an abortion. But you’re the only person walking in your shoes, and the only person who can decide whether to have an abortion. The decision is 100% yours.

Here are some things to consider if you are thinking about an abortion:

Am I ready to be a parent?
Would I consider adoption?
What would it mean for my future if I had a child now?
What would it mean for my family if I had a child now?
How would being a parent affect my career goals?
Do I have strong personal or religious beliefs about abortion?
Is anyone pressuring me to have or not have an abortion?
Would having a baby change my life in a way I do or don’t want?
Would having an abortion change my life in a way I do or don’t want?
What kind of support would I need and get if I decided to get an abortion?
What kind of support would I need and get if I decided to have a baby?
Decisions about your pregnancy are deeply personal. You hold the power to make decisions that are best for you in order to stay on your own path to a healthy and meaningful life. There are lots of things to consider, and it’s totally normal to have many different feelings and thoughts when making this decision. That’s why it’s important to get factual, non-judgmental information about abortion. Support from family, friends, partners, and other people you trust can also be helpful. But at the end of the day, only you know what’s right for you.

Who can I talk with about getting an abortion?

Lots of people lean on others to help them with their decision. It’s good to choose people who you know are understanding and supportive of you.

Your local Planned Parenthood health center has caring professionals that can answer any questions you may have. They’ll give you expert care, accurate information about all your options, and non-judgmental support along the way — no matter what you decide about your pregnancy.

Other family planning centers and private doctors may also talk with you about your decision. But be careful when looking for a reliable health center, because there are fake clinics out there that claim to offer information about pregnancy options and abortion. They’re called Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and they’re run by people who don’t believe in giving you honest facts about abortion, pregnancy, and birth control. Crisis pregnancy centers are often located very close to Planned Parenthood health centers or other real medical centers, and have similar names — they do this to confuse people and trick them into visiting them instead.

No one should pressure you into making any decision about your pregnancy, no matter what. So it’s important to get the info and support you need from people who give you the real facts and won’t judge you.

If you’re having a hard time finding someone in your life to talk with, check out All-Options. All-Options has a free hotline that gives you a confidential space to talk about making decisions about a pregnancy. They’ll give you judgment-free support at any point in your pregnancy experience, no matter what you decide to do or how you feel about it.

When do I have to make a decision?

It’s important to take the time you need to make the best decision for you. It’s also a good idea to talk to a nurse or doctor as soon as you can so you can get the best medical care possible. The staff at your local Planned Parenthood health center is always here to provide expert medical care and support, no matter what decision you make.
