Abortion is a woman’s issue.

That mantra has so penetrated our cultural consciousness that it’s as if men had zero involvement in pregnancy and parenting whatsoever.

But of course they do.

And, of course, when abortion happens it impacts men as well.

Just how abortion affects men is something of an open question since very little research has been done. Kevin Burke, LSW hopes to add to the understanding of abortion and men in his new book Tears of the Fisherman, Recovery for Men Wounded by Abortion.

We do know that men who suffer after abortion fall into two categories–those who passively allow abortion, or those who pressure for it. Both groups may experience shame and guilt which may be expressed as disengagement or aggression and anger.

You can be part of this caring conversation about abortion recovery for men. Let me know any questions you have for our guest in the comments below or call in during our segment at 800-811-3003 this Sunday at 8 pm CT.
