Post-Abortion woman: Why am I grieving?

From post-abortion woman Linda Cochrane:

“If abortion is so right, why am I feeling guilty and seeking help from psychiatrists and feminist therapists?

If abortion is so right, why am I needing increased amounts of alcohol and drugs to numb the pain?

If abortion is so right, why am I so depressed that I think of suicide as a way out?

If abortion isn’t the death of a baby, why was I grieving?”

“Post–Abortion Syndrome” Life Issues, Inc. Advertising Supplement, January 1989, P 9, quoted in Richard Exley Abortion: Pro-Life by Conviction, Pro-Choice by Default (Tulsa, Oklahoma: Honor Books, 1989) 48
