A New Zealand woman commented on a post I wrote recently about a recent NZ study which found that, “Women reporting adverse reactions were up to 80 per cent more likely than women not exposed to abortion to have mental health problems”. Here is her comment:
You are absolutely right about the lack of informed consent. I had an abortion eight yrs ago and almost died from depression after it – I was suicidal for years yet was not informed of this possibility when I attended the ‘counselling’ to explore options – the only option explored in the half hour session was abortion. It was described as being ‘very sad but a very simple and safe “procedure”‘ We were told we could get on with our lives afterwards. Life stopped after that day. My marriage limped along for years after and then we split. It is known that eighty percent of couples split afterwards yet there was no mention of this. There is no support afterwards, no grief counselling, no acknowledgement of the loss. It is barbaric, but who do you turn to after it is over? You are blamed for making the ‘choice’. In my case I was coerced by the male partner as are most women who submit. If I had sought assistance, I would have been blamed for having prior mental health issues, which definitely wasn’t the case – I was perfectly healthy, sane and rational before the event. I attended a Catholic retreat called Rachel’s Vineyard some years later and received reconciliation with my God, but still find it hard to live with. Thankyou for speaking up about this and please continue to do so – women are being sold a lie and Family Planning clearly has a Government population control mandate – Margaret Sparrow should be hung, drawn and quartered for what she has done … or better yet she should be forced to have an abortion seeing as she is such a vocal supporter of them for other people.
Did you know they don’t give women seeking abortions scans while they are trying to make up their minds? Why? Because most women change their minds and continue the pregnancy when they see their child’s heartbeat. Abortion is never a ‘choice’ – it is a terrible road taken in desperation and if it wasn’t available people would have to cope as they did in days gone by. What we have now is a generation of men who think abortion is harmless and almost a rite of passage for women – they are spineless and don’t take fair responsibility for the consequences of sex. The man’s response to pregnancy is the number one determinant as to whether a woman will abort or not. If she perceives a lack of support she is likely to do the ‘sensible’ and ‘supportive’ thing by climbing on the table and submitting to having her child murdered in her womb. The repercussions are horrific – it is a soul wound and half of our women are walking around as zombies in society. Thirty percent of all abortions are to married women. Abortion is also known to contribute to child abuse for both parties – perhaps this might explain the horrific rates we have in Australasia.
How did you find that? …but abortion is simply about women’s reproductive rights, what’s the big deal? Go watch TV and forget about what you’ve just read. Who cares?

Leaves one speechless, and rightly so.
