19. See Study Posted Above
There have been many studies; I have posted one above. I can provide more if you like, but they all come to the same conclusion: abortion has no significant long-term emotional sequelae in women who were psychologically normal before their abortion. Women with negative emotional sequelae tend to have been psychologically abnormal before their abortion.

You can see the same abnormal grief reactions in infertile or subfertile women who wish to become pregnant over IVF/GIFT cycles that fail or even phantom pregnancies. Is their grief real? Of course. Is it a normal reaction? No.
