Study reveals striking differences in well being between women who were allowed to terminate pregnancies and those who were denied abortions. Women denied terminations were more likely to live in economic hardship, remain in abusive relationships, raise children without external assistance, face more life-threatening complications during pregnancy, such as pre-eclampsia, and experience chronic pain following birth compared to women who were able to seek an abortion.
