The recent Supreme Court leak has started a discussion around a 50-year debate over abortion and the discussions are bringing up tears of regret for women who have lost a child by choice.
Feelings of regret are always difficult to cope with. The flood of thoughts that something else could have been done, that another choice would have been available, that someone would have been supportive at a time when feelings overwhelmed and muddied thinking, and fear resulted in a deadly decision that some women and men never get over. An abortion is not a decision that should be taken lightly as the resulting feelings of guilt can be devastating. Why is this feeling of regret never part of the discussion?
