When it comes to abortion, our culture tells us to support it, no questions asked and no education given.
However, people should be informed about abortion, including what happens during an abortion procedure, the reasons why women choose abortion, and the long terms impacts on women.
According to a 2017 study published in the Journal of American Physicians & Surgeons:
of post-abortive women say they felt pressure from others to abort.
of post-abortive women say they knew in their hearts they were making a mistake when they underwent the abortion.
As it turns out, abortion is a tremendous act of violence against an innocent human being, the majority of women feel external pressure to choose an abortion, and abortion hurts a woman's mental health.
According to a 2023 study published in the Cureus Medical Journal:
Women who reported being pressured into an abortion by either their male partner or a family member also reported statistically significant levels of:
Negative emotions due to their abortion
Interference with daily life, work, or relationships
Intrusive thoughts, including flashbacks to the abortion
Frequent feelings of loss, grief, or sadness about the abortion
Increased levels of stress answering questions about the abortion
