Essentially, women who have been abused are more likely to have abortions.

1127 women completed a 65-item questionnaire at a hospital abortion facility in London, Ontario. The results showed that overall 20% had experienced physical abuse by a male partner, and 27% had a history of sexual abuse.
Similar research in the US has shown that 31% of women seeking an abortion have experienced physical or sexual abuse at some time in their lives and, of these, more than half have witnessed domestic violence as children.
The increase in child abuse that comes from allowing abortion is already well documented, but this is the other end of an apparently viscous circle.
As legal abortion has increased child abuse, and if you have been abused as a child, you are more likely to get an abortion. Just one more good reason to break the cycle of violence.
Also of note is the finding that a huge proportion (60%) of the women getting abortions were using contraceptives when they got pregnant.
