Abortion and “emotional torment”

From a postabortion woman, identified as Jane:

“Looking back now, if I had known then what emotional torment I would go through as a result of having the abortion, I would never have gone through with it. I told her [the counselor] that I still didn’t know whether I could go ahead with the abortion, but she just fobbed it off by convincing me that this was the best thing for everyone.”
