The question “Does abortion harmful for women?” Is one that has been asked time and again by people who are pro-life, or at least want to restrict abortion. And the answer is a simple, but not necessarily satisfying “no”. As an anti-choice activist, I have been asked that question too many times. The reason being, most abortions are performed on women who are young and perhaps even pregnant, and thus they may not even be mentally or emotionally prepared for the whole thing. Still, some women have gone through it, and their experiences, although not bad in themselves, do paint a rather grim picture of what abortion causes in women.
First, let’s examine the “women’s abortion side effects” issue more closely. The first thing that most pro-life women will tell you, and this is true of the anti-choice movement as well, is that most women who choose to have abortions are actually doing so because of problems with their uterine health. As with any medical procedure, if a woman is not physically or mentally prepared for an abortion, there will be complications. Some of which can be quite serious, and women who’ve gone through an abortion may not understand how frightening and tragic the experience can be for a woman. Women who have gone through an abortion may have nausea, or even fainting spells; these are all signs that the women’s abortion has caused them.
However, other women are not so lucky and may go into shock or even pass out. These women abortion side effects are sometimes much worse than the woman herself, and those women need to find out exactly what the pro-life or anti-choice women abortion has caused them. But it needs to be done with the seriousness that should come with learning about one’s own body. Too much shock and anxiety can only cause more harm than good. That’s why learning about one’s own body is the first step to learning about one’s abortion experiences.
