Abortion Poems

Poems about Abortion

Viewing abortion as a simple, convenient procedure is misguided. Mothers who have chosen to abort often face feelings of sorrow, shame, and guilt. The body will physically heal after an abortion given time, but the psychological scars left behind may never fade. Many women feel anger for having aborted a child they were told did not yet exist as a person. While the acute grief that often follows abortion may be difficult to cope with, expressing such feelings through writing or to an intimate friend can help. Although the decision to abort is irreversible, forgiveness and a measure of peace can be found.
