Springfield, IL (LifeNews.com) — An organization that is one of the leading research institutions on the physical, medical and mental health problems women face after abortion has launched a new web site to serve as a clearinghouse for post-abortion information. The Elliot Institute has launched AbortionRisks.org, to keep track of problems.
The web site will not only provide a wealth of information on post-abortion complications, but will allow women who have experienced problems a chance to share those.
AbortionRisks.org is a Web 2.0 site designed to allow anyone in the world to find or contribute information.
Using the same software platform that underlies popular web sites like Wikipedia, AbortionRisks.org allows registered users to add their own information and pages to the site, as well as to edit information that is already there.
The site will include sections for post-abortion ministries to add information about their work and provides space for women and men who have been involved in an abortion to post their stories.
The web site will also house the Thomas W. Strahan Memorial Library, an extensive bibliography of published studies, books, and articles on the aftereffects of abortion.
Tom Strahan was a lawyer and civil rights activist widely considered to the one of the world’s foremost authorities on abortion and how it damages women. His bibliography was published in the form of a book, Detrimental Effects of Abortion, which is now a featured section of AbortionRisks.org and is available for reference by visitors and for updating by the contributing editors of the new web site.
In a statement the Elliot Institute sent LifeNews.com, the organization called on pro-life advocates to help as volunteer editors to help improve site organization and monitor it for abuse form abortion advocates.
Anyone interested in helping build and maintain the site can go to www.AbortionRisks.org to create a free account.
