Women Exploited by Abortion pamphlet Surviving Abortion

Women Exploited by Abortion (WEBA), a support group for women who regret their abortions,  says the following in a pamphlet called “Surviving Abortion”:

“You may be led to believe, by doctors, abortion facility counselors, or other “family planning” personnel, by other women who have had abortions, psychiatrists, parents, husband, or boyfriend that your grief is illegitimate. This frequently leads women to feel foolish, selfish or guilty about their grief and that just makes their already confused state more stressful. . . . There is a paternalistic attitude in the abortion field that seems to promote an opinion that an uninformed decision is a less painful one. We know that the opposite is true. “

Camille S. Williams “Abortion and the Actualized Self” First Things November 1991
