Although the topic of abortion is always in the news, you never hear about the emotional impact. Reporters talk about federal and state laws, but they never write about a woman’s experience. Abortion clinics talk about how easy it is, but they never mention a woman’s feelings either.
Perhaps the fact that the media never talks about how a woman feels is why women who’ve had abortions rarely talk about them either. It seems like women talk about everything, but their abortion. Maybe she’s afraid she’ll be judged or she thinks it’s too embarrassing to talk about. Whatever the reason, women keep their post-abortion feelings to themselves.
Have You Been Affected By An Abortion Decision?
At the Pregnancy Care Center, we believe women are affected by their decision to have an abortion. Many women struggle with sadness, anger, shame, and regret days, months, or even years post-abortion. For some, abortion is a very traumatic experience. They experience these emotions:
- Depression or sadness
