I cannot remember

literally when I found out I was pregnant.

or exactly when I had my abortion. It has been about a year, and I think very rarely about my abortion.

While I was in college, there was an effort from the "other side" to document a "syndrome" akin to post traumatic stress syndrome that they argued resulted all the time after abortion.

I was fairly certain it was bullshit then. I am quite sure now.

While some women may have regrets, the notion that negative feelings inevitably result is crap.


  1. All the research supporting "post-abortion stress syndrome" is misinterpreted because antis are stupid. See my blog post on the subject!


  2. "This undercutting of women's trust in themselves is insidious and manipulative."

    Absolutely! Wonderful post, 1outof3

  3. I agree - I have not had a single enduring negative thought. I may have had fleeting moments of sadness (never regret though) or uncertainty, but overall I knew exactly what I was doing and I am very happy with the choice I made. I think it comes down to a matter of perspective - if you aren't 100% completely sure it's what you want to do or at least very very sure a majority of the time when you think about it, you're going to regret it endlessly and question your choice which will inevitably lead to guilt and other negative feelings. It also has to do with the fact that people have a hard time taking responsibility for their choices and actions. If you do something, it's your choice. Accept it and move on, or don't do it at all. It requires a level of maturity and responsibility, just as conversely the choice to have a child would require maturity and responsibility as well.


If you leave negative comments they will be deleted.
