- There is evidence of emotional, relational and even spiritual risks following an abortion procedure. Most women say they initially felt relief and looked forward to their lives returning to normal. But some women report negative emotions after abortion, that linger, unresolved. For others, problems related to their abortion emerge months or even years later.
After abortion, most women are able to become pregnant again. However, abortion may increase the risk of complications that can impact future pregnancies and the health of future children. Below are a few of the potential risks on future pregnancies and children:
- pre-term birth
- low birth weight
- placenta previa
