NLIRH was quoted as a data resource by someone who commented on the Washington Post article, Abortion and health-care reform: Explaining Stupak, what's next and more.  The Post staff writer, Lori Montgomery doubts that women can't find the money to pay for an abortion.  The commenter corrected Ms. Montgomery using data from NLIRH and the Abortion Access Project.

You wanted some data: "Many women struggle to raise the money for an abortion as their pregnancy progresses. Sixty-seven percent of poor women having an abortion report that they would have preferred to have an earlier procedure."

(Abortion Access Project and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health.)

Lori Montgomery: OK.
