|After my abortion, I spent a couple of weeks on a forum specifically for woman suffering from pas. I should mention that I didn't have pas myself. I went to the board because I had some questions about physical recovery. It was way before I found this board. Most of these woman could not even write the word baby. We were all required to use stars*** instead. Most even named their aborted children. It was quite sad, actually, and I really felt bad for them.
I found that most, if not all, of these woman knew beforehand that they didn't want to abort. Most spent the weeks or days before their abortion, doubting their decision but went through with it anyway. Some of these woman had aborted 10 years ago, and still have problems dealing.
I'm not sure if pas is actually a mental condition or just sadness and regret. Could it possibly be compared to post traumatic stress syndrome?
