Study shows one fourth of post-abortion women think abortion is wrong

From a 1988 book on abortion:

“In one study, researchers found that one fourth of the women who had abortions felt that it was morally wrong; 8% of them did not believe that any woman who wants an abortion should be able to obtain it legally.”

This seems to indicate that a sizable number of women who have abortions later come to believe they did something wrong.
