Abortion causes “serious communication problems” in couples

Pro-abortion author Miriam Claire:

“Women are generally more willing to talk about abortion than men… If he is still with his partner, he seems to feel threatened by the thought of sharing his experience in words, especially if his partner is present.

It appears that the main reason for this reluctance to talk on the part of men is the fact that abortion causes serious communication problems and emotional conflicts in their relationship with their partner… Both women and men were fearful of renewed conflict and tension over abortion, which might cause an emotional estrangement similar to what transpired at the time of the actual abortion.”
