Consider the Immediate and Long Term Risks of Abortion
Finding out the real risks associated with abortion is difficult due to incomplete reporting of complications and scientific bias, yet you should be equipped to be able to give full informed consent before going through a procedure or taking medicine that could have short and long term effects on your health. Consider the following as you make your decision (1).
Immediate and Long Term Risks of Abortion
- Heavy Bleeding
- Anesthesia Complications
- Damage to Organs
- RH Sensitization
- Future Pregnancy Complications
- Abortion and Breast Cancer Links

- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
- Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior
