You are absolutely right.
When counseling post-abortion women, they always broke down in tears and surprise when they were informed that remorse and regret, guilt and self hate are the NORMAL reactions of a mother who has killed one (or more) of her children. Lack of remorse/regret/guilt is an abnormal reaction.
When counseling pre-abortive women, those who were ‘hell bent’ to have an abortion were those who were being pushed by someone who wanted the abortion, more than she did.
Post abortive men felt helpless, and like failures in their roles as men, because they could not protect the most helpless of their offspring.
Men who paid for their women to abort, were every bit as disgusted with themselves as the ptsd inflicted women were, with themselves.
The OP article is a major break through!! Back in the early 90’s, printed materials described ptsd type reactions in those who’d had miscarriages, but denied the feelings and reactions of post abortive women.
They went so far as to say that those who did have strong reactions were pre-disposed toward mental health issues.
But I know personally that counselors at abortion clinics told women they might get the ‘blues’ for a couple of weeks, but that it was just a hormonal adjustment because their bodies weren’t pregnant anymore. When the adjustment phase passed, and the ‘blues’ were still there, women had NO place to turn.
That “tree” of the knowledge of good and evil is definitely one that’s best not tasted. The fruit looks good to the eye, but it’s bitter in the belly.
