All women feel differently after an abortion. Some women may feel regret, others may feel relief, some may be happy, and others may be confused on how they feel. The way a person feels about the abortion is based on how they feel about the child growing inside of them. Some of the common emotional side effects are suicide, alcohol and drug abuse, eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and neglect(“Abortion Risks: a list of major psychological complications related to abortion,” par 4). All of these are very serious side effects that can happen to anyone.
(2006) states that substance abuse frequently leads to conflict with family members, causing higher levels of expressed emotions, equaling a psychotic relapse. Lastly, substance abuse may further compromise cognitive functioning, which is already impaired in patients with schizophrenia. Other challenges to this population include: patient difficulty tracking or organizing responses to complex questions (Martino et al.,
This inevitably impacts upon the family as a unit, and when a mother is bringing up the children alone as a military partner will during deployment, this fact is even more alarming. Postnatal depression (PND) is a common condition that can have a significant and sometimes long lasting impact on family life. It can have a detrimental effect on a woman's parenting capacity which in turn can have an adverse effect on the cognitive and emotional development of the infant. Similar to any episode of depression or low mood, depression after having a child affects the woman's feelings about herself and in turn may effect her interpersonal relationships. The expectation of society is that motherhood is a joyful and rewarding experience and these pressures can cause a new mother to hide her feelings for fear of judgement by those around

Borderline Personality Disorder Abstract Borderline Personality Disorder is a condition in which people have long-term patterns of unstable emotions, including feelings about themselves and others.The purpose of this paper is to elaborate on borderline personality disorder, and to heighten my knowledge on the subject by conducting research and presenting the information found. This is a disorder that affects mostly women. They start showing symptoms in early adulthood. I think this is because women tend to have a lot more societal pressures that play on their emotions and inflict negative self images. First, I will explain what exactly borderline personality disorder entails, next I will present the know causes and symptoms, then I will
Vulnerable mothers that do not finish getting their education become discouraged and loose the motivation and drive to tackle the oncoming challenges that life brings, creating for them another barrier on the micro level; it being a financial barrier. “Poverty and economic loss diminish the capacity for supportive, consistent, and involved parenting and render parents more vulnerable to the debilitating effects of negative life events” (Vonnie C. McLoyd, 1990 p.311). Not being financially stable brings on a lot of stress that impacts the relationship between the mother and child. Education has a large impact on a person’s life and it can change it for the better.
In fact, females are expected to perform several family responsibilities as defined above and sometimes it appears that there is no option for them but because of such high expectations and work load, females especially who are 40 plus often become the victim of depression. It might occur because of reduction in their physical power with the passage of time as well as due to changes introduced via menopause condition. Whatever is the reason but, after this entire situation is concerning for society as; it might destroy the whole societal structure (Bartley et al., 1992). 2-what would be your best guess as to jean sweet land’s parenting style, and why do you think so? In my opinion, Jean tries to provide best care to her children and expects negligibly.
Many Obstetrician-gynecologists state various reasons as to why they cannot assess a woman for post-partum depression, such as time constraints, lack of knowledge of diagnostic criteria, and lack of training. (Leddy, 2011) This study was also introduced to pediatricians as a facilitator to assess post-partum depression in women as they bring their children to well-baby visits. “Some pediatricians also believed that this is a great idea for different reasons, such as, child abuse and neglect, discontinuation of breastfeeding, and family dysfunction.” (Dennis, 2009) However, some pediatricians stated similar reasons as the ob-gyn, constraints of time, lack of knowledge of diagnostic criteria, and lack of training. Pediatricians acknowledge that despite a mother’s lack of knowledge, or there socioeconomic status she will take her child to appointments with the pediatrician. More pediatricians should advocate for more training in evidence based interventions and treatments for mothers with Postpartum Depression.
One of the reasons for this is "cervical incompetence". During an abortion the cervical muscle is hastily stretched open, and hence can be rendered too weak to stay closed for another pregnancy. Another complication is ectopic pregnancy, a life-threatening situation in which, due to scar tissue in the womb from the scraping of the abortion, a fertilized ovum is blocked from entering the uterus and so begins growing in the fallopian tube and eventually ruptures it. Since abortion was legalized, ectopic pregnancies have risen 300%. Many other physical complications can arise, as the chart below shows.
Say an under aged girl, or even a girl who isn’t under aged was molested or raped, and that resulted in a pregnancy. Someone with Utilitarian views could say it is better to have the abortion because it could cause more harm on the baby or the mother if she continues the pregnancy, and suffers depression by the constant reminder growing inside of her, or after the child is born she could resent the child and cause it harm. These situations would have a negative outcome for more people than a good one, so in Utilitarinaism eyes, aborting the baby would be the right thing to do. Consider someone who is looking to adopt a baby, because they cannot have a baby of their own. If a woman aborts her baby she could be denying that couple who can’t have a baby the opportunity to adopt.
