New research continues to show the serious psychological trauma of abortion on mothers. EarthTimes.org reports on the latest research in "The mental baggage of abortion lasts years." Here is the opening paragraph:
It is public knowledge that losing a baby is amongst the most traumatic experiences a woman can go through. It is even believed that this mother-baby connection lasts beyond the womb, with the mother's tie to her child being instinctive. Now a study by Norwegian researchers from the University of Oslo provides evidence that a choice to lose a baby is more painful than the natural loss of a baby even five years after.
So, the loss of a baby through miscarriage appears to be less traumatic for the mother than the ending of a baby's life through abortion.
Are these results surprising?
Hardly. Nevertheless, they once again show the ongoing harm of abortion. I pray that God will continue to open the hearts and minds of people around the world to end this barbaric practice!
