Father Frank Pavone interviewed Dr. Phillip Ney, a child psychiatrist from Canada, and founder of the International Institute on Pregnancy Loss and Child Abuse Research and Recovery, about his research and his thoughts regarding the link between fibromyalgia and abortion. Basically what Dr. Ney said is that when there is trauma or stress there are endorphins and hormones that are released and travel to the brain which creates a memory of the event.
In the case of an abortion the memory that is created is a non-experienced memory by the mother or an endgram (not sure if this is the right word) memory from the hormones released as the child is torn apart in the womb, which would explain the feelings of pain in areas as the shoulder and hip (where the child is torn apart) in cases of fibromyalgia. Basically the child would have had this memory except for it being dead, so in its place the mother keeps the memory through the hormones released.
With fibromyalgia there is no definite sign of arthritis or actual pain other than the woman experiencing the pain which is real. Physically it is difficult to detect and diagnose because there doesn't seem to be anything showing up on e-rays, MRIs and the like. But if at the point of destruction the hormones from the baby are sent to the brain of the mother creating a memory then it would make sense that the body would register and remember the pain in exactly the same places that the baby felt it in the womb. You can listen here to what I heard on the radio. This link should get it.
May 31-June 1, 2008: Abortion is Not Medicine. In the second of a five-part series Rev. Pavone talks with Psychiatrist Dr. Philip Ney about the lack of medical benefit found in abortion and the harmful secrets it creates.
So like an HPV diagnosis in someone would almost guarantee that others would know the person's potential morals or lack there of, and HIV almost always denotes a gay man, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia could potentially indicate a woman who has aborted a child. Just a thought.
Also, Dr. Ney refers to abortion as a pseudo-secret in a family because usually the surviving children in a family have a sense of impending doom and of survivor's guilt. So those children are not surprised to learn that mother had an abortion. As a matter of fact they are usually relieved to have what they have "known" in a way confirmed.
Dr. Ney has done extensive research in post abortive women and families. If abortion has to be legal then at least we should be giving women all of the information needed to make a rational decision, right? I think so.
