Washington, D.C. -Â On December 4, 2012, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., an impressive and diverse group of experts and witnesses with personal experience of abortion will present a three hour media briefing and background session on the topic: â€śWhat HasÂ 40 Years of Abortion Done to America?â€ť
The purpose of the briefing is to provide access to a broad spectrum of experts, including women hurt by abortion, for news media preparing news stories regarding the 40thÂ anniversary ofÂ Roe v. WadeÂ andÂ Doe v. Bolton.Â All presenters will make their written statements available to be used in any format, without embargo. Presenters will provide evidence, documentation and background material that will assist all reporters in preparing thoughtful analytical pieces that present both sides of the issue of legalized abortion. The event is being hosted by The Justice Foundation.
Operation OutcryÂ is a project of The Justice Foundation and has now collected over 5,200 legally admissible testimonies from women of how their abortion hurt them.Â Five of these women will present their individual abortion stories showing the diverse range of experiences of abortion and its aftermath.Â The U.S. Supreme Court has cited Operation Outcryâ€™s testimonies for the proof that â€śsome women come to regret aborting the infant life they once created and sustainedâ€¦â€ť â€śSevere depression and loss of esteem can follow.â€ťÂ Â Gonzales v. CarhartÂ (2007).
