After abortion care is something that many people don’t consider when they look at the abortion debate. The goal of this blog will not to be weigh on whether abortion is a morally legal or not. Everyone who makes the decision to get an abortion will undergo an excruciating process before she decides to get an abortion. The problem is that some young girls will undergo a coerced abortion not knowing there are other options out there and resources that can help them if they decide to get abortion.
The Stacy Zallie Foundation, for example, was started because Stacy Zallie was the victim of a coerced abortion even though it violated many of her beliefs. Stacy received significant pressure to get an abortion and could not share her decision with her mother because she believed her mother would be against it, so Stacy did not have her loved ones help her make a difficult decision at such a young age. Stacy was only 20 years of age.
She got an abortion and asked to see a psychiatrist because she underwent significant emotional issues that were not expressed to her before she decided to get an abortion. Stacy took too many pills shortly after meeting with the psychiatrist. Stacy was taken to an emergency room and later died from her psychiatric illness after having an abortion. The doctor who performed her abortion was Stephen Chase Brigham who has had legal troubles over the past twenty years for malpractice and other issues.
This blog will take a look at why after abortion care is so misunderstood and the special steps that need to be taken to treat these young women who are so susceptible to a number of different mental issues after undergoing such an emotional and scary event. We will discuss after abortion care and how families can take ownership to ensure young women receive the best care and most information during this transition.
