The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons published a study entitled Women Who Suffered Emotionally from Abortion.
58% of respondents said they aborted to make others happy. 74% felt some form of coercion to abort. When asked in what ways abortion positively impacted their life 53% responded with ‘none’ or gave no response at all.
The American Psychological Association acknowledges the risk factors for psychological distress due to abortion. Twenty states now mandate some form of pre-termination counseling about the side-effects of abortion.
In the spirit of true reproductive empowerment, shouldn’t all abortionists discuss the likely negative psychological impact of abortion with each woman?
