Abortion Mental health

Abortion and mental health

Here is a link to an important new study by Dr. Paul Sullins.

Here is a bit from Dr. Sullins:

“Almost all mainstream Western social science and medical associations assure us that ‘women who terminate an unwanted pregnancy by abortion experience no more mental health problems than women who deliver such a pregnancy’. These statements subtly understate mental health problems following abortion by glossing over a well-documented but seldom acknowledged fact: a significant minority of abortions–about one in seven in the U.S.–are of pregnancies that the mother reports were *wanted*, not unwanted.  Such abortions most often occur because, while the mother wanted the child, others involved such as her partner or parents did not.”

Dr. Sullins’s paper is the first study ever done of this class of abortions.
