It is a well-known fact that pregnant women are not supposed to feel any form of stress. If they are more stressed out, they have a higher chance of getting a miscarriage. No expectant mother would like to experience this. There are some women who would like to get an abortion because they are not ready to get babies yet. They go through with the procedure and some of them become stressed out about it.

Abortion, especially if it is illegal, can cause a wide variety of problems to the woman who is getting the abortion. Some say that the abortion truly hurts and they are also risking their lives in the process. The stress may go away over time but it is likely that people who have had bad abortion experiences will remember what they have felt for a long time.

I'm sure you must guess that the answer is Yes, unless you are a man who has not had much to do with women, no sisters and no female friends at school. An abortion, even if chosen by the women, is an emotional event and a physical trauma. It is undergoing a procedure which is not natural to the body, whereas having a baby is. The procedure may be painless, and the immediate aftermath manageable, but there is a loss and the woman herself may not realise that she is going to react with upset afterwards.

Thinking about whether to have an abortion is stressful, fearing the procedure is stressful, undergoing it is also and dealing with the possible consequences such as partner or parental disapproval, time off school or work, and thinking, perhaps, of what might have been. Yes all of this is stressful.
