Post Abortion Depression is real

Artist hanged herself after aborting her twins - Telegraph
An artist killed herself after aborting her twins when she was eight weeks pregnant, leaving a note saying: "I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum." Emma Beck was found hanging at her home in Helston, Cornwall, on Feb 1 2007. She was declared dead early the following day - her 31st birthday. Her suicide note read: "I told everyone I didn't want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies: they need me, no-one else does."

I saw a film about this issue a few years ago. The filmmaker told me that every subject, no matter how taboo, can be discussed openly on the Avant-Gard film festival circuit; except this issue.
