Postabortion woman: something between us died

By Sarah Terzo

From a woman after her abortion:

“I wished for a peaceful and stable relationship, which I don’t believe I will find with my present partner. It feels like something between us has died.”

Researcher David Reardon has found that 50% of relationships break up soon after an abortion. Other studies put the number at 70%.

From Vivian Wahlberg , Memories After Abortion (Oxford: Radcliffe Publishing, 2007), p.37.
