Life After Abortion

GUESTS: DANA DOVITCH *Co-author, The Healing Choice (a Fireside Book published by Simon & Schuster, 1997) *Psychotherapist in private practice in Los Angeles, specializing in reproductive health, post-abortion conflict, stress, trauma, and other women's issues. The never ending argument over abortion is wrapped in a contentious web of moral, religious, and political concerns. But even for the most ardently pro-choice, the decision to abort can be excruciating— and while some may feel a sense of relief after the procedure, for others, feelings of regret, shame, or anger may creep in over time. Join Melinda Penkava and guests for a look at life after abortion.
