FRC: New Mental Health Studies Dispel Myth That Abortion Is A 'Non-Event'
Date:12/5/2008

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two new studies out this week add to the body of research evidence clearly showing again that abortion is associated with increased risk of adverse mental health effects. The two peer-reviewed papers were published in the British Journal of Psychiatry and the Journal of Psychiatric Research. Both had strong methodology and controls for confounding or alternate variables.

"The results of both studies add to the strong body evidence detailing the causal association between abortion and mental health disorders," said Moira Gaul, Family Research Council's Director of Women's and Reproductive Health. "Additionally, these findings continue to reinforce important implications concerning informed consent in health care. Women in this country deserve quality health care which provides accurate information on the associated risks accompanying abortion," added Gaul.

"Women are increasingly coming forward to share about the negative impact abortion has played in their lives. Clinicians treating women for mental health disorders are increasingly stepping forward to tell the truth about the large numbers seeking treatment due to the fallout from abortion. These studies dispel the repeated lies from the pro-abortion community that abortion is a 'non-event' or somehow 'therapeutic' in women's lives. This substantial body of scientific evidence warrants a government longitudinal study," concluded Moira Gaul.
