Even those who only encourage women to get abortions can be hurt by them; and, moreover, some friends who advise abortion may have hidden ulterior motives. From one woman:
I’m sorry that I encouraged you to abort. I know I made it sound so easy. What I didn’t tell you was that I had buried my own pain about abortion. I wanted to convince myself, as much as you, that my abortion wasn’t so bad.
Worse, in encouraging you to abort, and seeing you abort, I was somehow hoping that your abortion would make me feel a little better. After all, I liked you, and if you also had an abortion, then somehow that was proof that I could still be likable too.
As you can tell, I was really messed up.
