Abortion lowered my self-esteem

A woman who had an abortion said:

“My abortion lowered my self-esteem considerably, and for a long time caused me to feel-and act-like `used goods’ in male/female relationships.”

Helen Susan Edelman, “Safe to Talk: Abortion Narratives as a Rite of Return,” Journal of American Culture 19, no. 4 (1996)
