Linda Bird Francke: 71% express negative feelings after abortions

Linda bird Francke interviewed women right after they had their abortions. She found that:

71% expressed some type of negative feeling about their abortion experience.

Keep in mind that she talked to these women as soon as they got off the abortion table. Most post-abortion women claim they feel relief after their abortions. Feelings of guilt and loss usually appear later. The fact that 71% of women were already feeling bad about having an abortion mere minutes after the procedure is very telling.
