Example text

Even while flawed studies have received extensive criticism within the scientific community, their messages have been taken up by the media and the anti-abortion movement. The tactics that the anti-abortion community uses to dissuade women from having abortions have changed over the years from prioritizing the rights of the fetus to creating the impression that abortion hurts women. The truth, I believe, is that anti-abortion tactics don’t dissuade many women from having abortions. Instead, these tactics—forcing patients to view ultrasounds, luring them into crisis pregnancy centers in order to persuade them to continue their pregnancies—increase internalized stigma and shame around the abortion decision.

Level 2: Seek understanding. Level 3: Reframe. indb 8 2/27/12 12:37 PM What Is Abortion Counseling? 9 WHY DO DECISION ASSESSMENT AND COUNSELING? I believe in the importance of high-quality decision assessment and counseling not because I believe that abortion causes psychological disorders, but because I feel that it is an opportunity to transform how women experience themselves and their decision during and after abortion. Centering this belief in the importance of abortion counseling are the findings of the American Psychological Association (APA) Task Force on Mental Health and Abortion (2008), which concluded that women having a single, legal, first-trimester abortion (for an unplanned pregnancy, not for fetal or maternal indications) are not at any greater risk of negative psychological health than women continuing an unplanned pregnancy to term and parenting.

For some people, the decision to have an abortion is a difficult one. For others, it is not. Some women bring a complicated life to their abortion appointment. They bring relationship problems, depression, drug and alcohol use, and intimate partner violence. Having an abortion is not necessarily going to make any of these things better, and it’s not necessarily going to make any of them worse. Sometimes an abortion is simply the best decision that a woman can make at a particular time in her life, given her life circumstances.
