Touchstone Magazine mentioned a few months ago that in their September issue they would be running an article by Rachel McNair on the psychological effects of performing abortions.
The September issue is now out and although Touchstone doesn't put all their articles online, I'm glad to say that this article is available online here:
The Nightmares of Choice.
"What is the emotional impact of doing abortions on the people who do them? Those who do them have written and said enough to show that it is no ordinary medical procedure. Some, like Tisdale, suffer nightmares. Others suffer many of the other symptoms associated with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), once called "shell shock" and "battle fatigue." The practice of medicine, of healing, should not give you nightmares, should not leave you shell-shocked.
In the following, only pro-choice doctors and nurses and official medical publications will be quoted...Their belief that dealing constantly with abortion was an unusual and significant source of stress, more so than ordinary medicine, did not by any means come from opposition to abortion."
I'll have more to say later.
