Women have spoken out describing the complications they had to endure following an abortion procedure in a documentary film, Life After Abortion. Michael Robinson, SPUC Director of Communications said: “This documentary reveals a catalogue of horrors”.
The documentary, which features on Amazon, “takes an honest look at the undeniable impact abortion has had on real people.”
One woman described how she needed blood transfusions and emergency surgery after her procedure. She said: “Pieces of my child had actually been left inside of me. I had developed an infection which led to the bleeding. And then my doctor proceeded to tell me that I could have died from the infection, I could have bled to death, or he might have even had to perform a hysterectomy, which meant I could have never had children.”
Another woman described how after seeing the body of her aborted child, she called her local abortion facility asking for help, which told her “that’s too bad” and abruptly hung up the call. The woman said: “Two days after the abortion I was sitting at the place where I lived… and started cramping severely. And so, I went into the bathroom… and it felt as though I had passed something. And when I looked down, in my hand was my baby.
“And I remember seeing the hands and the feet, and that the skin was translucent. And where the eyes were forming. And I was so horrified that I dropped the baby and flushed the toilet because I couldn’t imagine that that’s what I had just seen. And I ran to the phone to call the abortion facility to tell them what had happened. And all they had to say to me was, “Well, that’s too bad.” And then they hung up on me.”
There is no such thing as a safe abortion
SPUC’s Michael Robinson said: “Misleading language and messaging can often be used by the abortion industry to conceal the truth about abortion and the danger it can pose to some women.
“Only last month SPUC reported on how emergency ambulance calls for abortion complications increased by 54% during 2020 in the UK.
“The physical and emotional consequences that abortion can have on women can be life changing.”
Evidence-based review, Abortion and Women’s Health, reveals the adverse impact that abortion can have upon the mental health of some women.
Key findings from the review are that:
- A woman who undergoes an abortion is six times more likely to commit suicide than a woman who gives birth.
- A woman is 30% more likely to suffer from depression compared to a woman who gives birth.
- A woman is 25% more likely to suffer from anxiety compared to a woman who gives birth.
SPUC’s Mr Robinson added: “We know that there is no such thing as a safe abortion. Each abortion destroys a defenseless unborn life and can leave a trail of destruction for many women and families.”
