Obsessive-compulsive disorder apparently related to abortion.
Am J Psychother 1989; 43(2):269-76AJ

Abstract

This case study presents a young woman who developed a severe obsessive-compulsive disorder after a routine medical procedure. It is suggested that this procedure brought back repressed guilt from three abortions and thus led to the onset of symptoms. The case is discussed in relationship to available research and theory.
