NWHS Continues on HBCU Campuses

As a part of Phase 2 of the National Women’s Health Study,  Vitae’s research team conducted another research study of Black women to help us specifically understand perceptions about abortion in the Black community. This study sets out to find:

  • What drives perceptions and beliefs?
  • What are the major influencers (people/organizations)?
  • How can we change the “landscape” of abortion?
  • How can we “move the needle” on hearts and minds?
  • How can we gain more traction with HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) students?

All women surveyed were between the ages of eighteen and thirty-four, half of them have, or currently attend HBCU’s, half have had an abortion, and all were not strongly pro-life or pro-choice.

We are currently reviewing and finalizing the results of this study and look forward to sharing them with you in a subsequent newsletter.
