"Because a man's instinct is to protect and provide for his offspring, his very masculinity is challenged when his child, born or unborn, is killed. And because men tend to deny their emotions — their "pain is taboo in our culture," said one conference presenter — they avoid thinking about abortion. Their 'impacted grief,' exposed as anger, leads them down many nasty roads — inability to connect with others being a key one but also abuse of drugs or alcohol, sex addiction, impotence, abuse of pornography, depression. Finding God seems to be one thing that helps." — from the Nation's take on men who suffer from "Post-Abortion Syndrome," which author Sarah Blustain calls "the bastard child of post-traumatic stress."
