For some women, these emotions may appear immediately after an abortion or gradually over a longer period of time.
Counseling or support before you make a decision to have an abortion is very important. If family help and support are not available to you, talking with a spiritual or professional counselor before having an abortion can help you better understand your decision. Many pregnancy resource centers can provide counsel to you.
Remember, it is a woman’s right to be fully informed by her doctor prior to any procedure. A woman should be encouraged to ask questions.
