Post Abortion Trauma is the psychological, emotional trauma that occurs after an abortion. The onset of these symptoms can occur anytime beginning the day of the procedure to many years later.
Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS) is a classification of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) occurring in both men and women involved in choosing abortion.
94% of women, when asked 10 years following the abortion, report that they regret the decision to terminate. 65% of these women experience more than 3 of the 20 common symptoms on a daily basis.
