    Mental Health Issues Relating to Abortion

    The mental health impact of abortion is severe. Although the pro-abortion camp has cited a number of references (including the fact that various American psychiatric organizations do not recognize post abortive disorder these are the same psychiatric organizations who do not recognize homosexuality as a disorder, remember!) the simple facts remain that abortion scars the women who kill their children. This is hardly surprising who wouldn't suffer mental anguish after killing their own child?
