Do Women Really Suffer After Having An Abortion

I found the wording of this article from Psychology Today to be very intriguing. For example, the phrase “at times women may feel compelled not to follow through with a pregnancy under pressure from a husband, boyfriend, or family member.”

But I think the conclusion is that many times women do suffer symptoms of post traumatic distress disorder after abortion.  Even though the writer tries to console the post-abortive woman by telling her she has done nothing wrong, she seems to think the problem is serious enough to write about it.

I think that reading about the issue from a person who appears to have a pro-choice attitude can increase our understanding and help us to dialogue with those with differing opinions.  Here is the article.
