Textbook for providers: adolescents have more postabortion trauma

In a textbook meant to teach future abortion workers, it says:

“Adolescents can present the counsellor with sharply delineated views and feelings, they tend to be dissatisfied with the choice of abortion, viewing abortion as “wrong” and perhaps because of this often present late. Research shows that they can report greater severity of psychological stress and deserve careful counseling.”
