Ask Collage – Can I be Forced to Have an Abortion?
Hey there! I’m Joey, the Center Director and Ultrasound Tech for Collage here in Grand Island.
I’ve worked with a couple of clients who have asked me if anyone can force them to have an abortion. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to share a little information with you on that.
Legally, no one can force someone to have an abortion, even if that person is a minor. So although abortion is a legal pregnancy option, if a girl is being forced, coerced or pressured in any way, that person could face criminal charges. We have some additional legal information on that here at the Center if you find that telling a person isn’t enough.
If you would find it helpful for us to walk through that with you, we would love for you to call or stop in and we would be more than willing to help you in any way we can.
