"The ability to keep pregnancy test results secret could save lives, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) associate director, Gretchen Shaw, tells me plainly. “[I]t’s not a perfect answer,” Neylon adds. “If [a woman was] pregnant and wanted to get away from the abusive relationship without the abuser knowing about the pregnancy, this would be helpful. Of course if she is, then there are other decisions she needs to make. But [she] could make those decisions more safely.”"
