To date, Abort73 has published more than 700 stories of abortion regret. We’ve also heard from upwards of 50 women who say they don’t regret their abortion. But in almost 15 years of existence, Abort73 has never heard from a woman who regrets giving birth. Why is that, do you think? Do such women not exist? Statistically, it’s almost certain some do—and it’s possible that guilt or decorum is holding their tongues, but I think it’s safe to assume that there’s a more obvious explanation for this dramatic disparity. That’s because there are clear and cognizable reasons for why a woman is more likely to regret an abortion than she is to regret giving birth.
