Arkansas abortion law should be adopted nationally, says women's group

.- Abortion clinics nationwide should be required to post a sign stating that women cannot be forced into having an abortion, say the founders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the nation's largest network of women hurt by abortion.

Co-founders Georgette Forney and Janet Morana, believe the law should be based on a newly adopted measure in Arkansas, which requires abortion businesses to post a sign stating that women cannot be forced to have an abortion.
 
"I can't tell you how many women I know who've been pressured into aborting by a boyfriend, husband, or parent," said Forney. 

"This Arkansas statute is really just a gentle reminder to women that no one has the right to threaten or intimidate us into terminating our children,” she continued. “Everyone in every state should support this type of legislation. After all, how could someone who says he's pro-choice oppose a law that tells a woman she has a choice?"
 
Janet Morana said the law is needed because abortion clinics have a financial interest in women having abortions and would not post such a sign on their own.
