NEW YORK — If you’ve been reading this blog, you probably know that I’m a feminist.
I believe that women deserve equal treatment, and that if we’re to have a healthy, secure, and just society, we need to address the needs of women and men equally.
I believe that a woman should be able to choose when she’s pregnant and when she decides to end her pregnancy, and to make those decisions without being judged.
And that women should be free to have abortions, and should be given the choice to have an abortion if she is unable to care for herself, and if she’s facing a financial burden that makes it prohibitive for her to have one.
But I’m not the only one.
This week, a new study by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists found that women who go to a gynecological office are nearly twice as likely to experience an abortion than those who go home alone.
The study, conducted by a team of researchers at Georgetown University and the University of California, San Francisco, surveyed more than 1,000 women who had attended a gynecomastia in the U.S. over the past three years.
The survey asked about their gynecologic history, sexual health and health behaviors, reproductive health, and family planning choices.
They also looked at other aspects of women’s lives, including whether they had had an abortion or were considering one, as well as their physical and mental health.
The study found that one in four women who attended a women’s health clinic were asked to complete a self-report survey about their health history and sexual behaviors during their visit, as opposed to the 1 in 7 women who went home alone, or women who were not given any personal or social information about themselves.
Women who reported having an abortion had higher rates of anxiety, depression, depression and suicidal thoughts, as compared to those who went to a women-only clinic, and women who did not report having an anorexia nervosa, bipolar disorder, or anxiety disorder.
Women were more likely to be more likely than those in the home to report having had a miscarriage, which had a higher rate of abortion among women who reported going home alone (14.3% vs. 9.9%).
The study also found that if women who are considering abortion were asked about sexual health, they were twice as like to report a condomless sexual experience (9.3%) compared to women who stayed home (7.6%).
The study was published online March 13 in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.
