Sobie and David C. About 20 percent of all abortions taking place in the U. Compared to women who abort at an older age, women who abort as teens are significantly more likely to report more severe emotional injuries related to their abortions.
Are two to four times more likely to commit suicide. Teens are also more likely to report having wanted to keep the baby, higher levels of feeling misinformed in pre-abortion counseling, less satisfaction with abortion services and greater post-abortion stress.
One study found that teenage aborters were more likely to report severe nightmares following abortion and to score higher on scales measuring antisocial traits, paranoia, drug abuse and psychotic delusions than older aborters. For example, a New York City study found that teens who had one previous abortion were four times more likely to abort their current pregnancy than girls experiencing their first pregnancy.
Teens are also at higher risk for post-abortion infections such as pelvic inflammatory disease PID and endometritis inflamation of the uteruswhich may be caused either by the spread of an unrecognized sexually transmitted disease into the uterus during the abortion, or by micro-organisms on the surgical instruments which are inserted into the uterus.
Complications of Late-Term Abortions The Centers for Disease Control has reported that 30 percent of teenage abortions occur at or after 13 weeks gestation, compared to only 12 percent of abortions overall.
Women who undergo late-term abortions often delay having the abortion precisely because 1 they have mixed feelings about the decision or feel less satisfied with it, 2 they have religious or moral objections to abortion, or 3 they have a more favorable attitude toward the unborn baby than women who have abortions in the first trimester.
In this regard, polls have consistently found that more teens have pro-life or anti-abortion attitudes than do older women, which may help to explain the much higher late-term abortion rate among teens.
No doubt another factor is that teens are more likely to conceal their pregnancies, either out of shame or in an effort to avoid being pressured into an unwanted abortion.
After all, many teens know well in advance that their parents or boyfriends will support only one choice: But teens who conceal their pregnancies are never truly safe from the pressure to abort.
Late-term abortions, and all of the factors related to ambivalence—such as delay, concealment of the pregnancy, and feeling pressured to abort—are significantly associated with more severe emotional and psychological problems after abortion.
When the abortion causes subsequent emotional reactions that are not understood—such as depression, anger, and substance abuse—parents may react with anger and confusion, exacerbating the problems of the teen and her family.
The cost of such concealment can be dreadfully high. Both year-old Erica Richardson of Maryland and year-old Dawn Ravanell of New York died from complications after they had abortions without telling their parents. As shown above, numerous studies have found that, compared to older women, younger women—especially adolescents—are at significantly higher risk of physical and psychological complications following abortion.
But this information is not generally known by the public, and certainly not by the parents who pressure their daughters into abortions. They have no idea that they are subjecting her to a physical and psychological trauma that will forever scar her life.
Nor will the abortion clinics, who have a vested interest in keeping the dangers of abortion secret, explain the full range of risks to teenagers, their parents, or—in the case of judicial bypass—the judges who stand in the place of the parents.
Abortion is fraught with dangers and risks, especially for younger women who are at greater risk of suffering both physical and psychological complications. The deceptive business practices of abortion clinics—which conceal these risks from these teenaged girls, their parents, and even judges—are nothing less than criminal.
