They often feel worthless because of what they have done to their child because the pregnancy was unexpected and they had to “do what they had to do”. The mother also expirences anxiety which is expressed feelings of generalized or specific worry, fear, panic, dread or forebidding. Physical symptoms can occur also such as increased heart rate or high blood pressure. Hostility can form also from great amounts of anger or hatred which can cause outburst or violence. Abortion can cause isolation of the parent(s) from the outside world.
Women get abortions for many social and personal reasons. The social reasons can be that the pregnancy would change how others feel about them if they have their baby such as from their friends and family.
