Teenage girls have nightmares after their abortions

From a therapist who works with postabortion women:

“I have encountered young women (as young as 14 and 16 years of age) who are drinking and drug taking in order to sleep without nightmares, and without hearing the baby’s voice crying out, or because “I keep dreaming about dead babies” (Melissa). Alcohol and substance abuse are used as anesthesia to block out the memory.”
