Mental Health Issues Relating to Abortion
The mental health impact of abortion is severe. Although the pro-abortion camp has cited a number of references (including the fact that various American psychiatric organizations do not recognize post abortive disorder – these are the same psychiatric organizations who do not recognize homosexuality as a disorder, remember!) the simple facts remain that abortion scars the women who kill their children. This is hardly surprising – who wouldn't suffer mental anguish after killing their own child?
