I don't know how reliable this site is but I did find this http://www.afterabortion.org/psychol.html.


31% is mid range. Thought it doesn't take into account WHY a woman regrets her abortion. The regret could be because a WANTED pregnancy had to be ended for health reasons, or because a woman was coerced into an abortion that she might not have otherwise had.

Nope. However, I'd like to see some sort of statistical report of the converse. How many women who have/had children later regret it later.

There was a "Dear Abby" letter that asked "If you could go back in time (and therefore would not have KNOWN your children) would you choose to have kids?"

Sounds about right.


Both of my parents, unprompted mind you, told me at 16 that if they had to do it all over again they would never have had children. And they wonder why I spent my late teens depressed and couldn't wait to go away to college.

Wow-= that is so sad - for the kids. And pathetic for the adults. Can't they THINK? I mean, all of ours were planned- when we were ready- and we took care to use reliable means of contraceptives to prevent pregnancy in betweenarein the numbers it would take to comprise that 70%!~

I think its a mixture of things....For one, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

I don't fins it sad I find it shocking that so many people would admit to feeling that way. You can love your kids completely and still realize life would have been easier without them. Sometimes I think of the job opportunities I turned down to be there for my family and suffer from green grass syndrome.

Sometimes, I think about lost job opportunities, too.

I can only speak for myself, I have never regretted having my abortion almost 34 years ago.
