American Journal of Psychiatry on abortion

From a study in the American Journal of Psychiatry:

“Negative emotional response [to abortion] involving guilt, sadness and regret” is seen by some psychiatrists as a “part of the normal spectrum of response to abortion.”

CM Friedman, et al. “The Decision-Making Process and the Outcome of Therapeutic Abortion” American Journal of Psychiatry Vol 131(12) p 1332-1337, 1974 Copyright 1974, the American Psychiatric Assn.

It’s true that this is an old reference, but there is more recent research to back it up.
