Psychotherapist: "Large Proportion of Women" in Therapy Are Post-Abortive And Sorrowful

"But she felt that the women of the 70s who had blazed the 'termination trail' had failed to tell the next generation that abortion can leave a legacy of misery."
From a June 2014 web article in the UK called "Coping with a termination of pregnancy", by Christine Webber, psychotherapist, on the website "NetDoctorUK."
"Over the years, I've noticed that a large proportion of women who come for therapy have terminated a pregnancy. As they begin to talk about the abortion, they become very emotional and express feelings of great sorrow and confusion.

"Some of these women are astonished that having a termination has affected them so badly, despite believing they were right to halt the pregnancy."

The doctor plays both sides safely, though, citing but not providing a link to a single 2011 UK meta-analysis (study of other, previously-done studies) which concluded that "the incidence of mental health problems in women who have an unwanted pregnancy was the same whether they had an abortion or not."

This is a tennis match that's been going on for over two decades now: batting down one side's "study", etc.

If there really is no problem of poorer mental health in women who've had abortions, then no psychiatrists, no psychotherapists, no Skilled Nursing Facilities would be treating it in women.

"What Makes Someone Susceptible To Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS)?"

This article is posted on the website of Casa Palmera, a California-based "behavioral health facility", otherwise known as a licensed Skilled Nursing Facility with 24/7 residential accommodations and MDs, Psychiatrists, MSWs and many licensed professional staffers, that helps people treat "eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating, drug addiction and alcoholism, and chronic pain and trauma." Just found them in a random google search. We have no affiliation with them, don't know them from Adam or Eve. Yet in their own experience, they saw fit to put up a page devoted to helping those who suffer remorse or worse from their abortion experiences.

Read their answers to the question, "Who is susceptible to Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome?" and what they've concluded are the "Symptoms of Post-Abortion Stress Syndrome."

The lone comment on the article is interesting too: Lauren

Hi. I just wanted to say that I have always been pro-choice instead of pro-life. Two weeks ago I got an abortion at 6 weeks and 3 days (I am 18yr old) I am currently going through PASS and today I had my first nightmare. My nightmare was that I went to go get an ultrasound and I saw the baby (might I add that when I got my ultrasound before my abortion I did not see the ultrasound so I don’t even know what it looks like) yet I still had a nightmare about it. So no, pro-life didn’t make up that PASS is a syndrome. I am pro-choice and still experienced PASS.

They aren't a pro-life nursing facility. It would seem they are just an ordinary, run-of-the-mill, non-political one, based in one of the most liberal, abortion-supporting states in the union. Seems to me that licensed Skilled Nursing Facilities don't address a problem on their website, never mind actually treat it in enough of their patients to warrant an entire webpage on that site, if it's a problem that "doesn't exist."

"The Coveted Badge of 'Regret-Free' Abortion" -an article

Our friend Theresa from Lumina in last month's Aleteia article, "The Coveted Badge of 'Regret Free' Abortion".

And what is Aleteia? "From the ancient Greek "Aletheia", "truth", is a worldwide Catholic network sharing faith resources for those seeking Truth. There are 1.2 billion Catholics in the world, and more than 2 billion Christians. By uniting our forces we will be able to represent a significant international voice online, in the global cultural panaorama. Aleteia is a service in six languages: English, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian."
