Another Argument Dispelled

The American Psychological Association (APA) just completed a 2 year study on the mental effects of abortion and they find that there is no evidence that abortion causes any significant mental health issues.
"The best scientific evidence published indicates that among adult women who have an unplanned pregnancy, the relative risk of mental health problems is no greater if they have a single elective first-trimester abortion or deliver that pregnancy," said Brenda Major, PhD, chair of the task force. "The evidence regarding the relative mental health risks associated with multiple abortions is more uncertain."
