Counselor comments on “spiritual agony” of abortion

Theresa Burke, who has worked with hundreds of postabortion women:

“The psychological and spiritual agony of abortion is silenced by society, ignored by the media, rebuffed by mental health professionals, and scorned by the women’s movement. Postabortion trauma is a serious and devastating illness which has no celebrity spokeswoman, no made–for– television movie, and no platform for the talk show confessional.”
