Abortionist Admits Women Feel Sorrow after Their Abortions

Dr. Susan Poppema, an abortionist, discounts post abortion trauma as an “antichoice” myth. However, in her book, she says:

“Sorrow, quite apart from the sense of shame, is exhibited in some way by virtually every woman for whom I performed an abortion, and that’s 20,000 as of 1995. The sorrow is revealed by the fact that most women cry at some point during the experience… The grieving process may last from several days to several years… Grief is sometimes delayed… The grief may lie sublimated and dormant for years.”

Suzanne Poppema with Mike Henderson, Why I Am an Abortion Doctor (New York: Prometheus Books, 1996) 125 – 126

Quoted in Rachel M MacNair, PhD. Achieving Peace in the Abortion War (New York: iUniverse, 2009)
