Abortion grief at 50-60

Ann Saltenberger presented the following quote, attributed to a textbook on psychology in her book  Every Woman Has a Right to Know the Dangers of Legal Abortion (Glassboro, New Jersey: Air Plus Enterprises, 1982)136

“The significance of abortions may not be revealed until later periods of emotional depression. During depressions occurring in the 5th or 6th decade of the patient’s life, the psychiatrist frequently hears expressions of remorse and guilt concerning abortions that occurred twenty or more years earlier.”
