Effects and Risks of Abortion

It may seem like an abortion will wipe away this situation and you can just move on. It’s not that simple. For many women, it is a life changing event with physical and emotional consequences. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they had been told all of the facts about abortion and its risks.

Consider the physical risks of induced abortion:

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

Consider the possible emotional effects of abortion:abortion affects both the woman and man involved

  • Grief
  • Guilt
  • Anxiety
  • Anger and/or 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 volunteer counselor about these risks.  Watch a doctor describe different abortion procedures.
