6 weeks after abortion, woman cries all night

From a book that told the stories of postabortion women:

“20-year-old Rickie, who is a Black Muslim, opposes abortion and has been mad at herself since she had an abortion 6 weeks ago. She had the hardest time the night after the abortion. She recalls, “I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt so bad. I was crying all night. I felt really low, like I was the stupidest person on earth.”
