                   Eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, suicidal urges, anxiety and panic
                  attacks are just some of the symptoms of post-abortion depression, according
                 to congressional findings in the recently introduced bill known as the Post-Abortion
                 Depression Research and Care Act (H.R. 4543).

Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, there have been approximately 50 million abortions performed in the United States. In the years since abortion was legalized, a number of studies have reported both positive and negative consequences of this procedure. While much has been learned concerning the effects of abortion on the men and women involved, there is still much more to be discovered. This website has been established for the sole purpose of collecting data concerning the effects of elective abortion on men and women.

Four populations will be surveyed through this site. These populations include:

  • women who have experienced abortion

  • men whose female partners have experienced abortion

  • parents whose adult or minor children have experienced abortion ("grandparents" on the sidebar)

  • medical personnel who are currently working or who have worked in a facility where abortion is performed
