The effect of abortion on women

Abortion is such a difficult issue and one that many people shy away from discussing it but the aftermath, even after many years, can be devastating. 

Emotional and/or psychological problems can arise when women deny or suppress the natural grief that results from the loss of their aborted child.

This denial or suppression blocks the healing process and the trauma can manifest itself as a psychological and/or physical breakdown. Women need to be able to express their feelings following an abortion and hopefully this section of the website will provide a way to do that.

Abortion can also have physical effects on women and more and more evidence is arising as to the link between abortion and breast cancer.
