|You are spot on! I am pro choice but I dont have much choice as I have had an abortion. Absolutely nothing like this was said to me by any of the doctors I saw and there was no after support either.
I didnt feel the extremes like you have posted here but I did, after a period of time feel extreme guilt and becoming pregnant after an abortion was a very hard thing to deal with, even though I wanted this baby very much.
Women need to be made aware exactly what it can be like after an abortion emotionally as well as physically. Another thing they need to be advised about is that these feelings can suddenly arise years after the abortion itself. Not enough is explained and most aftercare is not satisfactory.
Alot of women go through abortions and dont regret a thing. Thats great for them but for the others it can be a sad lonely place to be!
|I have frequently come across pro-choicers who refuse to entertain women who admit to feeling guilt and depression afollowing an abortion. Their view is that 'it was your choice, deal with it'. I don't think this if fair at all as abortion is literally a life changing event and I think it's perfectly natural for a woman to grieve her child and what could have been.
I have never had an abortion myself and I don't think I ever could now but if I'd fallen pregnant as a teenager, who knows?
I don't like abortion, it pains me that it happens, but unfotunately it is something that will always happen as long as there are human females getting pregnant.
