The personhood of the fetus is thus construed as a matter of opinion rather than fact. A further noteworthy feature of the PAS claim, in regard to the diagnostic criteria for PTSD, is the representation of the symptoms of PAS. ” To be diagnosed as having PAS, the woman has to reexperience the abortion trauma in one of four listed ways (for example, having recurrent, distressing dreams of the “unborn child”); she has to show three manifestations of a possible seven listed examples of avoidance (such as avoiding thoughts about abortion or feeling detached from others); and she has to have two of a possible eleven “associated features” (such as difficulty in falling asleep or eating disorders) (Rue 1995:27–28).

In their interesting and informative study of the antiabortion argument, Hopkins, Reicher, and Saleem argue that, through the PAS claim, opponents of abortion are in fact responding to the criticism that they ignore the experience and needs of women.

Rue also contends that the lack of recognition of the trauma of abortion is key to the psychological problems experienced by women who have had an abortion.
