Pro-choice groups reject women who were hurt by their abortions

From author Melinda Tankard Reist, who interviewed many postabortion women:

“Women often spoke of being unable to get satisfactory help for their grief from clinics or organizations connected with abortion. Karleen said that when she sought help at a women’s counseling clinic in Sydney she was told it was wrong of her to speak badly of her abortion experience. Kara, from Queensland, told of posting her personal abortion story on an Internet discussion of abortion. She was told to “get lost” – her story wasn’t welcome….If a woman is depressed after an abortion, she is made to feel it’s her own inability to deal with sadness which is the problem. The onus is all on the woman.”

  1. Im sorry but if a woman has an abortion she deserves no damn sympathy..that is a life and in the eyes of God considered murder..i dont even agree with abortion if its a rape case because so many loving familoes cant have babies amd this baby who was aborted could have had such a good life..ive seen people go in amd child after child be aborted because they cant keep their legs closed or use some type of contraseptive.its ridiculous..think about it..this person has just murdered their own child but then wants sympathy from someone and the angry because they get turned away..the fault is their own they didnt think about the tiny life that was alive with a beatingbheart only tp be gouged by a pair of sciccors in their head or scaled and burned from the inside out by saline infusion.this makes me sick to even read….”womem upset because they get less than mediocre mental help for something they did themselves…they should get turned away..
