Choice is liberating. Choice empowers us. And according to the U.S. Supreme Court, women have the right to choose. Is the abortion choice the same for women as the right to vote and the right to free speech?
Is abortion a good choice for our mind and soul?
What about the permanency of the abortion decision, does it cause women emotional harm?
Fact is, after an abortion, woman can find themselves coping with feelings they did not expect.
These unresolved feelings can create emotional conflict.
Many women rationalize the need to have an abortion, and therefore repress their initial feelings of guilt. As a result, the emotion fallout from abortion is delayed, sometimes for as long as 5 to 20 years.
For many women, abortion is not a glorious right through which they are able to reclaim control over their lives. Instead it is an “evil necessity” they submit to because they believe they have no choice.
Unfortunately, abortion betrays a woman’s self-image and self-worth. She is internally divided by an emotional war.
Her maternal desires challenge the abortion experience, and as a result, unresolved feelings create emotion conflict.
