A post-abortion woman wrote the following letter to the British publication, The Guardian:

“The mental backlash has been enormous, and in all my consultations, not one person ever warned me of this. Even with the support of a firm marriage and a loving family, I came as close to a mental breakdown as I am ever likely to come, thus threatening the well-being of the family I was so concerned to protect.”

The Guardian, July 19, 1979.

From Mary Kenny,  Abortion: The Whole Story (London: Quartet Books, 1986) p.9.
