I ran across two quite mainstream health information pages online today, both of which warn about the potential emotional consequences of elective abortion:
See The Discovery Health encyclopedia (scroll down to "What happens later at home") and Ask the Expert at Mental Health Source:
My daughter has panic disorder. Her treatment was going well, until she had an abortion recently. Her boyfriend did not seem to want the child. Since the abortion she has had a complete breakdown: she cries and wants her baby back, has attempted suicide, shows signs of bipolarism and has lost touch with reality. I can find information on postpartum depression, but nothing on depression following the termination of a pregnancy. My daughter's psychiatrist says her problems are not hormonal, but a result of her loss. What do you think?
Mental Health Source agrees with the psychiatrist.
