Many relationships don’t survive abortion

Pro-Choice author Miriam Claire:

“Pregnancy forces responsibility on lovers and tests their capacity for communication, understanding, caring, and love. Many relationships don’t survive the test, and abortion becomes a source of great trauma and stress. Sadly, because of the lack of communication, couples who separate as a result of abortion often learn very little from the experience because they were unable to express their feelings to each other… The problems of lack of communication, understanding, caring, and love seem common to unwed and married couples, although the issues that trigger these problems may vary considerably.
