+  Pro-Abortion Study Falsely Claims Most Women Don’t Regret Ending Their Baby’s Life in Abortion

  • Description: "The financial backers and authors of this study are deeply entwined in the pro-abortion industry so, at the very least, we should question the motive and method behind the study. Women are incredibly complex and I've encountered thousands of women who have grieved the loss of their preborn child from abortion. When we consider the fact that an abortion purposefully kills a child, it is no surprise that so many mothers (and fathers) suffer in the aftermath. Abortion regret and trauma often manifest years after being buried. As can be the case with any severe trauma, many women may be in denial at first about the trauma and regret associated with abortion, and so their pain is often expressed in other ways. A federally funded, U.S.-based study found a 65% higher risk of clinical depression in women who had abortions, after controlling for age, race, education, marital status, history of divorce, income, and prior psychiatric state. And according to a study listed on the National Institutes of Health website, women who abort are five times more likely to be involved in drug and alcohol abuse. It’s why a big part of Live Action’s work is encouraging those who have been hurt by abortion to know that healing is possible and to speak out against it." - Lila Rose
