Interesting article here, by Barbara Kay.
Shouldn’t all women seeking abortions know all this stuff? I once sent a sleuth into three different abortion clinics posing as a woman who was having difficulty making up her mind about an abortion. She asked for a consultation in each clinic. Each time she was urged to simply fill out the forms and book the abortion for the next day. She had to press hard to get a consultation with a doctor. In each case she specifically asked the doctor if there were any side effects or downside to abortion. Each time the doctor emphatically assured her there was no downside or risks to a future pregnancy, even after multiple abortions. They lied, and they could lie, because there are no regulations around informed consent.
I have heard from women who have had abortions that they generally are quite amazed at the expediency with which the whole thing went down. They were talking more about the emotional side of things; no one ever gave them any reason to pause. One of these women I’ll put in the “mild regrets” category. It is possible that were women given someone to talk to, and more information, they might not go ahead with abortion so easily.
Then again, if the culture we live in continues to devalue life in the womb and pregnant women more generally, then no amount of “this abortion could cause premature delivery for your first wanted child” is going to help.by
