Other villains, according to PAS advocates, are those involved in the provision of abortion services. Doctors and abortion providers are often constructed as villains because, it is claimed, they pay little heed to the damaging consequences for women of the abortions they provide. S. proponents of the PAS claim are particularly forceful in their condemnation of abortion providers. Often their claims invoke the notion that abortion provision is an “industry” that aims only to make money, not care for women.

Rue has described abortion as a “death experience,” stating If elective abortion is nothing more than the removal of nondescript cells or tissue, then it would be highly unlikely that such a procedure could cause any significant psychological harm, much less resemble the symptom picture of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). On the other hand, if elective abortion is an intentionally caused human death experience, then it is likely that some women, men and significant others could manifest profound symptoms of intrusion/re-experience, avoidance/denial, associated symptoms, depression, grief and loss.

D. b). PAS claimants also criticize attempts to make it easier for women to get abortions, not on the basis that unborn children are killed, but on the basis that more women will suffer. In Britain, for example, it was reported that antiabortion groups were “dismayed” by “calls for abortion on request” made by groups supportive of legal abortion. An argument was put forward at a conference that “abortion should be made available on request during the first three months of pregnancy,” in contrast to current British law, which states abortion can be provided legally where two doctors agree “in good faith” that the woman concerned meets one of the grounds for abortion specified in law (see Chapter 3 for further discussion of these regulations).
