One area that particularly interests me is the concept of choice in relation to abortion and how it may affect decision making.
If ‘framing a decision as a choice can enhance the perceived value of a particular option’,1 perhaps the default state for a society in dealing with crisis pregnancy shifts towards abortion and more women may opt for it.
I am at the anti-abortion end of the spectrum of opinion on this issue and realise that most GPs pitch camp elsewhere. But it strikes me that most people agree it would be better for those women (an unknown percentage) who have a termination only to regret it, to somehow be enabled to make a different choice if it is right for them.
Research into this area of decision making will undoubtedly be challenging, but it may help some of those women for whom pro-choice is no choice at all.
