Pregnant College Students Aren't Made Aware
of Available Resources, Survey Finds

Student: "It Sure Doesn't Feel Like I Have Much of A Choice"


Springfield, IL (May 16, 2008) -- A survey released by Feminists for Life of America has found that many college students who become pregnant are unaware of resources available to them or don't have access to good resources.

FFL president Serrin Foster noted in a news release that when pregnant students look for resources, "either they can't find them or the resources are inadequate or expensive." One pregnant student noted that without resources, "it sure doesn't feel like I have much of a choice."

The survey, Perception is Reality, is part of an ongoing effort by FFL to monitor and establish resources for pregnant students on college campuses. Stories from students have shown that students who become pregnant are often immediately referred for an abortion by campus health center officials and are not given any information about other options or resources.

As FFL has noted, lack of resources or support and pressure from others are leading factors for abortion. A survey of women in post-abortion support groups found that more than 80 percent said they would have continued the pregnancy under better circumstances or with support from others and 64 percent felt forced into abortion due to their circumstances.
