Effects and Risks of Abortion

Abortion is not a simple fix but a life-changing decision with physical and emotional risks. You deserve to know all the information involved before you have an abortion. Many women who struggle with past abortions wish they were told more before they made a decision.

Consider the physical risks of induced abortion:

  • Bleeding or Infection
  • Potential scarring to the uterine lining
  • Possible risk of future infertility issues

abortion risks to you and your relationship

Consider the possible emotional effects of abortion:

  • Grief/Sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Anger/Depression
  • Difficulty bonding with partners or children
  • Change in the relationship with your partner
  • Increase in drug or alcohol use to deal with emotions

Please contact us to talk with a caring and non-judgmental advocate about these risks.  Watch a doctor describe different abortion procedures.
