Abortion is often considered as the easier way out. When a woman who is not supposed to get pregnant gets knocked up, the usual reaction of the people around her is, “Take care of that.” Do these people mean for the woman to continue with her pregnancy and take care of her child? Unfortunately, that is not usually the case. “Take care of it” gives out the same impression as “Nip it in the bud.”
To put it simply, make an appointment with an abortion clinic and be done with it. This may seem harsh, but we can’t judge other people’s decisions based only on our perspective and reality. Sure, the hardships of actually raising a child in the belly and out in the world are so much more than that of abortion. But we can’t deny that abortion also strains every aspect of a woman.
Women feel the same sensations when they are pregnant. Back pain? Morning sickness? All the other pregnancy feels? Women having an abortion may not endure this physical stress as much compared to those who continue having their pregnancies. But we can’t deny that the distress is still present. The abortion procedures are also to be taken seriously. Some say the pain in these operations are just like delivering a baby. Can you imagine that? This is especially distressing to women with low tolerance to pain.
Don’t get me wrong. More and more people are accepting of the concept of abortion. But many are still close minded and impossible to talk to when it comes to concepts that are alien to them. These people openly trash talk women who choose to make an appointment with an abortion clinic and not enroll in birthing classes-as if they have no right to be seen in public anymore. Imagine how all that can make a woman feel?
Thoughts on abortion can also cause mental strains to women. First of all, they have to decide which abortion clinic is best suited for their kind of abortion procedure. Then, most of them will beat themselves thinking about how painful the operation will be and if they will ever come out of it alive. Women have been known to produce confusing and unflattering thoughts that even they are afraid of. I guess men can just be careful that they can’t see the insides of a woman’s mind.
Who wants to give up their own baby? Those who have decided to do that must be conflicted to the core. The most felt emotion in this kind of situation is perhaps guilt. Guilt is a strong emotion that every woman should be wary of. It can turn into depression anytime as well. Depression is alive. It eats up a person’s thought until she no longer wants to be happy. Sometimes, women with this affliction are even suicidal. These emotions are never good for a woman, especially when she is pregnant and is on the line for an abortion procedure. It greatly helps if her loved ones bring her to a therapist first before going on with her operation.
