Textbook on abortion acknowledges women’s regret

A textbook meant to train abortion providers says:

“Some [women] will feel numb afterwards and only begin to question their decision or feel unhappy when they reach a significant milestone, e.g. anniversary of the abortion, or the due date had the pregnancy continued.


Some women recognize the need for postabortion counseling prior to the abortion. Others may feel that they do not deserve any support, as they have been responsible for “taking” a life and may not return for postabortion follow-up of any sort.”
