This book contains a foreword by Ann Thompson, Professor of Midwifery, University of Manchester. This illuminating book describes young people's thoughts and feelings before and after an abortion, and includes their experiences in the long term. It increases understanding and stimulates discussion of abortion issues without bias, and incorporates political, religious, social, physical and mental considerations in its wide-ranging approach. The personal narratives from both women and men make the issues particularly powerful. "Memories After Abortion" offers thought provoking ideas for all health and social care professionals involved in pregnancy issues. Undergraduate and postgraduate health and social care students, counsellors, therapists, teachers and youth/religious leaders will also find it invaluable. 'Consideration of abortion causes a lot of distress, anxiety and debate within society. This book should be read by women and men so that they can debate and understand each others' views and experiences in their relationships. It should also be read by nurses, midwives, doctors, health-service administrators and those providing social care.' - Ann M Thomson, in the Foreword.
