Poems about Abortion

Viewing abortion as a simple, convenient procedure is misguided. Women who have chosen to abort may face feelings of sorrow, shame, and guilt. The body will physically heal after an abortion given time, but the psychological scars left behind can take longer to fade. Everyone has their own opinion on the moral implications of having an abortion. Many women report that being pregnant feels like having a baby inside them and that it is psychologically painful to have an abortion. There are times when having an abortion seems like the right thing to do. For example when the mother is unprepared or her health is at stake. Others insist on a woman's right to choose.
