Women Do Not Regret Abortion Procedure Anymore

Abortion Facts: 95% of Women Do Not Regret Abortion Procedure

Anti-abortion campaigners explain a familiar mental health problem experienced by women who choose to terminate their pregnancies after pregnancy “Postabortion trauma syndrome". But, the results of a recent study in print in PLOS ONE propose there is no proof for this syndrome. Research shows 95 out of every 100 women who went through abortions said that they thought that they took right decision.
The outcome of the recent findings, are part of the large, constant Turnaway study, held by a research group and think tank at the University of California, San Francisco, identified as Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH).

A sum of 30 abortion clinics spread over numerous states were included in the study, and the researchers talked to almost 1,000 women who were present these clinics in January 2008 and in December 2010. From these women, 667 women - who had abortions either the first week or before 2 weeks under the clinics' gestational years limits - were carried by 3 years, ending semi annual phone survey on their opinion and thoughts about their abortions.
The normal age of the participant in the beginning of the research was 25 years age. About one out of the three of the participants were white, one out of the three were black, 21% Latina and 13% constituted of other races.

More than 50% of the participants told the decision to have an a
bortion had been hard or very hard. Sixty-two percent of the participants were already growing children, and 14% had a history of depression.

Moreover found out things are, optimistic emotions – like release and happiness - were to be seen overshadow the unhelpful emotions related with having an abortion, like regret, sadness, anger and guilt.

In the case where partners weren’t involved in the decision-making process, women in those findings reported being more confident that their conclusion to terminate was right, compared with women whose partners opposed to terminating the pregnancy.
