In January 2020, the authors of the Turner Study interviewed women from 30 abortion centers across the U.S. They reported that approximately 95% of women who had abortions did not regret their decision five years after the fact, even if they did initially experience regret.
One of the study’s authors, Corinne Rocca, PhD, MPH states:
“Even if they had difficulty making the decision initially, or if they felt their community would not approve, our research shows that the overwhelming majority of women who obtain abortions continue to believe it was the right decision…”
“This debunks the idea that most women suffer emotionally from having an abortion,” Rocca claimed.
Dr. Priscilla Coleman is a professor of human development and family studies at Bowling Green State University and disagrees with the study’s conclusion and methodology.
She told Catholic News Agency she believes the methodology of the study is “highly problematic” and explains why.
