As much as pro-"choice" extremists like to deny it, post abortion stress syndrome is real. Women DO regret abortion and suffer terrible consequences because of their "choice." The problem of boyfriends, parents, employers, etc. pressuring and forcing women to have abortions is another reality pro-"choicers" try to ignore and hide. Women deserve better than abortion.
Young artist hanged herself after grief of aborting her twins
A talented artist hanged herself because she was overcome with grief after aborting her twins, an inquest heard yesterday.
Emma Beck, 30, left a note saying: "Living is hell for me. I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum. I told everyone I didn't want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies - they need me, no one else does."
Yesterday an inquest heard that in the run-up to the termination Miss Beck discussed it with her GP, who described her as "extremely vulnerable".
She missed one hospital appointment and cancelled another before finally seeing a doctor at Treliske hospital in Truro, Cornwall.
But the counsellor at the unplanned pregnancy clinic was on holiday, so the doctor gave her the number of a "telephone pregnancy counselling service".
Eight days later, in September 2006, the same doctor performed the termination.
In February the following year, the night before her 31st birthday, Miss Beck hanged herself at her home in Helston.
She had recently split up with her boyfriend, identified only as Ben, who was said to have "reacted badly" to her pregnancy.
The Truro inquest heard that Miss Beck's mother later contacted the hospital, demanding to know why she was not given more support.
Sylvia Beck, 62, from Woking, Surrey, wrote: "I want to know why she was not given the opportunity to see a counsellor.
"She was only going ahead with the abortion because Ben did not want the twins. I believe this is what led Emma to take her own life, because she could not live with what she had done."
