Abortion causes long-term depression

From LifeNews...

Another study has confirmed the fact that women who have abortions suffer from mental anxiety, guilt, shame, and distress years later. Those negative emotional feelings can last as long as five years after the abortion or even longer, the Norwegian study found.

The study, published in the journal BMC Medicine, in Norway compared 40 women who suffered a miscarriage and 80 women who had abortions. Researchers questioned them 10 days, 6 months, two years and five years after what happened.

The survey found that women who had miscarriages felt more negative emotions shortly after the event compared to women who had abortions. But long-term, women who had abortions experienced significantly more distress and anguish.

Women who had abortions were 10 times more likely to have negative long-term feelings about it compared with women who had miscarriages.

The Oslo University researchers said women who have abortions should be given information telling them of the adverse emotional reaction they will likely have to it down the road.

Of course giving women who are seeking a solution to an unwanted pregnancy, information, would allow her to make a real choice, and that might prevent a baby from dying. And the Pro-Death movement likes it when babies die; they couldn't care less about choice.
