As of Aug. 8, this action had been reported by pro-life groups and Women’s eNews, which describes itself as a source “covering issues of particular concern to women and providing women's perspectives on public policy.”

    Planned Parenthood continues to say that abortion is medically safe, that most women feel relief and some women feel anger, regret, guilt, or sadness for a little while. They claim that there is no scientific proof that abortion often causes long-lasting emotional problems, or "post-abortion syndrome" (PAS).
    Www.afterabortion.org has research results (in detail) on post-abortion issues including physical and psychological complications. One survey showed that more than half suffered from guilt, depression, sorrow, regret, shame, self condemnation and unforgiveness of self with 60.4% saying that they suffered their worst after a year or more.
    Www.hopeafterabortion.com is a great resource for those who need to sort out their emotions and find healing from having an abortion.
    Abortion is big business and those seeking to make decisions would do well to learn the facts. Planned Parenthood warns pregnant women about going to crisis pregnancy centers saying "Hundreds of so-called 'crisis pregnancy centers' scare women about abortion. They lie about the medical and emotional effects of abortion."
    It's crucial to learn the facts and to get council from reputable people who want to help, not from Planned Parenthood.
    Perhaps we need to educate ourselves and the donors more about Planned Parenthood and their deceptive advice and 'facts'.
