The physical side effects of abortion will vary from woman to woman. There are many side effects and risks that you should be aware of and should talk to your doctor who will be preforming the operation. Serious complications can occur in first timers such as: heavy bleeding, infection, damage to the cervix, scaring to the uterine line, damage to other organs, and in worse cases, death. Other physical side effects after an abortion include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. You have to be aware that these risks are really serious and to think hard about your decisions. A pro-choice research team in New Zealand, analyzing data from a 25 year period and controlling for multiple factors both pre and post abortion, found conclusively that abortion in young women is associated with increased risks of major depression, anxious disorder, suicidal behaviors, and substance dependence (Moira). This was the most comprehensive long term study ever conducted on the issue. Ending a pregnancy can be both mentally and physically uncomfortable. CareConfidential.com states that sleeping and relationship problems, flashbacks and feeling the need to replace the lost child is possible psychological consequences of having an abortion. A woman might feel relieved but guilty for feeling that relief (Livestrong).

Abortions Pros and Cons
Abortion is the choice of women whether or not she want to receive one.
Abortion is one of the most controversial moral issues that have become the center of discussion in our contemporary society. This issue has raised strong arguments, and for some people simply to mention 'abortion' is to stir up emotions. In this essay, I will discuss people's attitudes, group attitudes and precedents in law towards abortion. There is 3 different outlooks that abortion can be seen as, foremost some people accept as true that it's a woman's right to demand an abortion, then there are those who believe it is a killing of an unborn human one-by-one and those that believe it is justifiable under certain circumstances. Iwill give both edges of this contention and interpret why I accept as true abortion should be illegal. There are, however, cases where the rights of the potential mother will be in sufficient conflict with those of the fetus that an abortion could be justified. The reason for this is that it is not justifiable to destroy the life of someone who can't defend itself (Bohan, pp 34-40).
Pos and Cons
The reason why abortion is such a controversial topic is that every abortion kills a baby. The issue of abortion is serious and could be considered as one of the largest human rights issues in America today with over 80000 unborn children being killed by abortion annually, even when it is illegal in most of Australia. In Russia where it is lawful it is used as a form of contraception when women have two or more per year. Whead covering is this doing to them bodily and emotionally?
The most routinely utilised methods are vacuum aspiration, dilation and curettage and dilation and evacuation. The cervix of the womb is dilated with instruments and the child either dismembered and sucked out (vacuum aspiration) or pulled apart with forceps (or a curette) and then scraped out (Hull and Peter , pp 111-19). Asurgical abortion that is presented between 6 and 12 weeks into a pregnancy may be finished while the woman is awake. She is granted the option of being sedated by medications, or having her cervix numbed (local anesthesia) with an injection so that she is fundamentally pain-free.
Asurgical abortion for a pregnancy over 12 weeks is usually finished while the woman is sedated, although it can also be presented while the woman is awake. The cervical canal is enlarged (dilated) and a hollow tube is inserted into the uterus (Bohan, pp 34-40). The conclusion to have an abortion is an intensely personal one. Nearly all health care providers suggest proficient counseling before making this decision. The hard line conservative position (i.e. the position claiming that abortion is wrong in all cases, except maybe when the mother's life is at stake, or there is an extremely grave consequence to the mother if the pregnancy continued) assumes that it is beyond doubt that the foetus is a person in ...
