(RNS) Fear of gossip and judgmental reactions routinely prevents churchgoing women who are considering an abortion from first seeking the counsel of pastors or others in their church, according to a new survey by an evangelical polling group.

    Of course women, especially single women do not trust churches for advice on unwanted pregnancies. Most churches have a vested interest in attacking abortion rights and constantly engage in s1utsjaming rhetoric.

    The idea that a single women gets pregnant sets off judgmental shaming nonsense from these groups. It’s a given, few will give objectively useful advice.

    Plus there is the whole religious based lying which is done about abortion or other options.

    There is no sane reason to trust churches here.

    No way would I recommend a woman talk to anyone at a church about abortion. Their reputation for lying about the procedure and its aftermath is well-documented.
    Lying comes with a price. Of course they’re not trusted.
