Summary: American Women Experience More Negative Effects of Abortion

A recent study that was conducted on American and Russian women found that American women were more negatively influenced by their abortion experiences than Russian women.

  • In this study reported by Med Sci Monit, data was collected using the Institute for Pregnancy Loss Questionnaire and the Traumatic Stress Institute’s Belief Scale which was administered at health care facilities to 548 women (331 Russian and 217 American) who had experienced one or more abortions, but no other pregnancy losses. Overall, the findings indicated that American women were more negatively influenced by their abortion experiences than Russian women. American women were considerably more likely to have experienced childhood and adult traumatic experiences than Russian women. Predictors of positive and negative outcomes associated with abortion differed across the two cultures.1
