Many states have passed abortion-related ‘Informed Consent’ laws which require that a woman seeking an abortion receive a state-authored informational packet before her abortion procedure can be performed.
The Informed Consent Project evaluates the ‘medical accuracy’ of this information with a focus on information on embryological and fetal development.
Our project examines the information produced by 23 states, evaluated by a team of human anatomists.
