"AN ABORTION is usually a safe and legal (but immoral and unjust in the eyes of God!) procedure, but many problems can occur either during or after a legal abortion, problems that you might not have been told about. You deserve to know what can happen to you if you choose an abortion.
"Approximately 10% of women undergoing elective abortion will suffer immediate complications. The most common complications that can occur at the time of an abortion are:
· perforation of the uterus
· excessive bleeding
· retained tissue
· cervical injury
· endotoxic shock
· "boggy" uterus
· failure to recognize an ectopic pregnancy
Warren Hern, Abortion Practice (Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1990).
"A survey of post-abortive women found that:
28% attempted suicide
31% experienced suicidal feelings
60% commented that the decision to abort made their lives worse
94% regretted the decision to abort
