Press Kit

Our press kit offers a comprehensive look at the political issue of abortion in a medical light. View areas of NAF expertise, including medical facts about abortion, common myths about abortion, and statistics on violence and disruption against abortion providers and patients.

Because we are surrounded by myths and misinformation about abortion, it can be difficult to sort out facts from fiction. NAF’s Abortion Facts provide accurate, unbiased information on all aspects of abortion care, including surgical and medical abortion, women’s access to abortion care, women who choose to have abortions, and parental involvement laws.

To speak with someone at NAF or one of our member abortion providers, contact the Communications Department at or call 202-667-5881.

NAF has been compiling statistics on incidents of violence and disruption against abortion providers since 1977. Our comprehensive database is an invaluable resource that detects changes in the patterns and trends in anti-abortion activities.

NAF’s Violence and Disruption Statistics are an invaluable resource for any reporter writing on clinic violence. They document incidents of violence that range from murder to arson and bomb threats to picketing.

In order to gain an historical perspective on extreme violence against abortion providers and clinics, see NAF’s History of Violence series which includes chronologies of extreme violence such as murders and shootings, arsons and bombings, and anthrax attacks.

NAF also offers profiles of anti-abortion extremist groups and individuals, such as the Army of God, Eric Rudolph, James Kopp, and Clayton Waagner.
