In What Happens to Women Who Are Denied Abortions, the New York Times writes about a study finding women who are denied abortions have no more emotional and mental health problems after the birth of the child than women who have abortions. The women also regularly bond with their child. The study finds, however, that the women and their children are likely to experience adverse economic consequences from the unwanted pregnancy – at least if they choose not to place the child with another family through adoption. So why isn’t the right answer to encourage adoption instead of abortion? The results of the study do not appear to be published since it is ongoing at this time.
