In spite of pro-abortion attempts to paint abortion as painless, the agony is very real – from Life News:
A new study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry by leading American researcher Dr. Priscilla Coleman of Bowling Green State University finds women who have an abortion face almost double the risk of mental health problems as women who have their baby.
Coleman’s study is based on an analysis of 22 separate studies which, in total, examine the pregnancy experiences of 877,000 women, with 163,831 women having an abortion. The study also indicated abortion accounts for one in ten of every adverse mental health issue women face as a whole.
“Results indicate quite consistently that abortion is associated with moderate to highly increased risks of psychological problems subsequent to the procedure,” the study says. “Overall, the results revealed that women who had undergone an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk of mental health problems, and nearly 10 percent of the incidence of mental health problems were shown to be directly attributable to abortion.”…
It is quite simply unnatural for a woman to abort her child – it is, indeed, a negation of all that “woman” means. Call it biology or the will of God, the plain fact of the matter is that women are to create and nurture life…a woman can choose not to do this, but to take “choice” to mean the deliberate killing of a life already started is a horrific violation of the feminine spirit. Given this, it is a certainty that there will be mental and spiritual pain associated with abortion.
My final awakening to the full effect of abortion was when, a few years back, I was privileged to meet some women from Silent No More – a campaign by women who have had abortions and now wish to warn other women of the terrible consequences. While I have been, for most of my adult life, pro-life, I still felt that as a man I was some how out of place in being a forthright and public opponent of abortion. The ladies of Silent No More set me straight…bringing me to understand that my duty, as a man, is to defend women…including defending them against abortion, to the fullest extent of my ability. The pain these women shared with me made it impossible for me do to other than continually speak out against this anti-woman, anti-human, barbaric practice…and to seek its abolition.
Let know one try to convince you otherwise – an abortion is the worst thing a woman can do to herself short of suicide. However bad the circumstances of the pregnancy, to kill the unborn child will just make it worse, not better. Life is always the proper choice.
