(3). Methods of Abortion – How are abortions performed? How and when is each method used?
(4). Abortion and Alternatives – Research abortion, adoption and parenthood. What are the benefits and risks of each choice? Where can women in your area get accurate information on each?
(5). Abortion and Religion – Churches’ views differ greatly. Which churches support the right to choose abortion? What about church members who disagree with the teachings of their particular faith?
(6). Clinic Violence – What types of violence have occurred? How often?
(7). The Abortion controversy – How do pro-choice and anti-choice groups support their position?
(8). Pregnancy Prevention – Preventing pregnancy removes the need to even consider abortion. What birth control methods are reliable? How does the reduction of public funding for birth control affect minors and low-income women? Should insurance companies pay for birth control?
