Consequences of Abortion .
Spiritual Consequences of Abortion
Does Abortion affect you?
Abortion can provide fast relief and lasting suffering. The
consequences of abortion can include guilt, depression, mourning,
shame, self hatred, insomnia, addictions and aggression, usually
in the parents and the siblings of an aborted child.
Parents, surviving children, family members and abortionists may all suffer.
We help people manage these emotional and
relationship consequences of abortion.
Post-Abortion Stress (PASS) is Common
Have you felt unpleasantly depressed since you, your parents or
a close friend had an abortion? We can help you manage your emotions and
- Are you often melancholic?
- Do you avoid potential partners?
- Do you hear babies crying when none are near?
- Do you try to turn off your feelings about an abortion?
- Did an abortion change the way you perceive yourself?
- Do you feel uncomfortable around babies
or pregnant women?
- Does an abortion seem to hold you back
from intimate relationships?
- Do you experience recurring dreams or nightmares
since an abortion?
- Do you feel disconnected from your family or partner
since an abortion?
- Do you feel anger, grief, shame or guilt
when you remember an abortion?
Does Abortion affect Other Children?
Following an abortion, we often find that a family member
(especially the first child born after a child's death) may be
melancholic, or have eating or sleep disorders. A sibling
may emotionally identify with an aborted baby (see
identification with a dead person)
with rather predictable, unpleasant symptoms. (People who identify with a
dead or missing twin or with a miscarriage
or cot death may experience similar symptoms.)
Consequences don't care about good intentions!
We help people alleviate the relationship consequences of childhood
deaths. (These consequences may occur even if the mother was raped or
if a doctor recommended an abortion - for example if an unborn
child was diagnosed with a genetic disease). The consequences
are often carried by other children - who may become
emotionally entangled with or bonded to the missing sibling.
All my life I felt that
someone I loved was missing. When I asked
my parents, they told me that they had an abortion before
I was born ...
and that it was none of my business.
Children's enmeshments show up as inappropriate behavior,
fixations and emotions; although the impact of these
entanglements may be latent until adolescence. (We find that children typically
express their parents' entanglements, with symptoms often commencing in
Life gives birth to life
Do you want to parent healthy children? Adults who cannot have children may dedicate themselves to
social causes, often seeking substitutes for parenthood.
Adults with poor relationships may feel depressed
(many people who take psychoactive medication appear to be attempting to
compensate for poor relationship skills ... with drugs.)
A 13-year study of pregnancy-associated deaths, published in
the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, found that the maternal
mortality rate associated with abortion is 3 times higher than the maternal
mortality rate associated with pregnancies carried to term.
Who benefits from abortion?
This week, about one million pregnancies will be ended by abortion.
Abortion is a big business that offers high incomes for those people able and
willing to provide it. Although the financial and relationship benefits of
abortion may seem obvious, the consequences of abortion can damage their
relationships and their health.
Your writing about abortion is pure nonsense. Abortion
is not murder anymore than
liposuction ... and the proper term is
'abortion doctor', not abortionist. Anonymous
Who really suffers?
Abortions may make sense - for example if a pregnancy
endangers a mother's life. But consequences don't seem to care about
the quality of the intentions. Many family members (particularly other
siblings) may suffer as a consequence of abortion.
I had an abortion ... my
boyfriend said he would leave me if I had his baby ...
my mother said abortion was best ... she told me later that
she had an
at my age.
Now I can't hardly look at either of them. London

... I don't regret my abortions for a minute.
They don't let you see anything bad.
My problems were gone and I
can keep on having fun ... and my boyfriends
grateful too ...
I will have children when I am ready. Boston
I wrote to you about my abortions before
I got married ... I have had three
miscarriages in two years ... Could
they be connected to my abortions? Boston
Abortion is a Family Issue
Partners, parents, siblings and other family members may
experience post-abortion reactions, including guilt, depression, anxiety
and damaged relationships. Anybody who pressures a woman into having an
abortion may later be unable to enjoy a relationship with that woman - or
possibly with any woman.
