17. It's hard to say
I don't doubt in many cases it would be a woman who had an abortion, then found religion and did regret it. Or maybe regretted it and through that found religion. It's a choice women need to come to on their own - I knew a girl in high school whose parents "strongly encouraged" her to have an abortion. She wouldn't have made that choice on her own and might very well regret it now and she might be the sort who would have a sticker like that. But I agree that women in that position seem less than likely to want the fact that they've had an abortion written on the back of their car.

On the other hand, it could be just another anti-abortion activist trying to get attention.
