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
  • Infection
  • Anesthesia Complications
  • Damage to Organs
  • RH Sensitization
  • Death
  • Future Pregnancy Complications
  • Abortion and Breast Cancer Links

Psychological and Emotional Impact

Following abortion, many women experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. For many women, however, the crisis isn’t over. Months and even years later, significant problems can develop (2).

  • Clinical Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Drugs and Alcohol Abuse
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior
  • Guilt
  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Relationship Impact
  • Spiritual Consequences
