Incest and Abortions...

In the USA, very very few of the total number of abortions are due to incest. In surveys, it's reported to be the reason for the abortion in 1% of cases or less. Here is a good survey of the data by Robert Johnson. Another good summary can be found here, at Baptists for Life.

This is very interesting to me because if you go to incest boards, people often ask to talk to those who have had a child by incest. Nobody ever asks about those who aborted an incestuous pregnancy.

If you click over here, you find that "incest victims only very rarely volunteer to have an abortion." (Maloof, "The Consequences of Incest: Giving and Taking Life" The Psychological Aspects of Abortion (eds. Mall & Watts, Washington, D.C., University Publications of America, 1979) 84-85.)

That correlates well with the fact that "in the only major study of pregnant rape victims ever done, Dr. Sandra Mahkorn found that 75 to 85 percent chose against abortion." (Mahkorn, "Pregnancy and Sexual Assault," The Psychological Aspects of Abortion, eds. Mall & Watts, Washington, D.C., University Publications of America, 1979, 55-69.)

Given the high disposition of women to keep their unborn children even when raped or because of abusive incest, it would seem to me that those who unwittingly get pregnant due to a consensual incestuous relationship would be even more likely to avoid an abortion.
