By Dave Andrusko In the fourth of a four-part series, National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias completes her debunking of the pro-abortion mantra that pro-lifers are waging a “war on women.”  As she explains, “Our opponents in this battle for life would have everyone believe that if you don’t support …

Risks of repeat abortions to subsequent pregnancies documented in Finnish Study

By Dave Andrusko In her Pro-Life Perspective broadcast for today, NRLC President and PLP Host Carol Tobias reminds us that one of the key foundations for the anti-life view is that while abortion kills unborn babies (“terminates pregnancies”), mothers come out unharmed. It was never true and isn’t true—especially with women who have repeat abortions– …

Still Another Pro-abortion Attack Fails to make Case against Dr. Coleman

By Dave Andrusko You would think someone who occupies a position as prestigious as the editor of the New York Times editorial page could constrain his gloating long enough to at least think before he goes bonkers. But if Andrew Rosenthal (who is to subtlety what anti-matter is to matter anyway) comes upon something he …

More Evidence of Increased Psychological Risks Associated with Abortion from Chinese Study

By Dave Andrusko A new study out of China has added to the rapidly accumulating world literature on abortion and mental health, demonstrating that even in a culture where abortion is widespread, women who’ve aborted are much more likely to experience depression and anxiety in the 1st trimester of a subsequent pregnancy than women who …

“An excellent example of the media bias that permeates the study of abortion and mental health”

By Dave Andrusko According to a useful definition from Wikipedia, “The third rail of a nation’s politics is a metaphor for any issue so controversial that it is ‘charged’ and ‘untouchable’; any politician or public official who dares to broach the subject will invariably suffer politically.” Are there third rails in the abortion controversy?  You …

Further Thoughts on a study claiming that abortion is not associated with an increase in mental health problems

By Dave Andrusko Late last week I wrote about an outcome that was as utterly predictable as it was unjustified. A review commissioned by the [British] Academy of Medical Royal Colleges concluded that “abortion is not associated with an increase in mental health problems.” Billed as the largest study worldwide of the relationship between abortion …

How a British Study Undermines the Justification for virtually all abortions

By Dave Andrusko Jeremy Laurance, who is pro-abortion, writes a column, “Medical Life,” for the British newspaper, The Independent. Imagine his joy when an academic study purports to show that “abortion poses no greater risk to mental health than childbirth for those with unwanted pregnancies,” buttressing a first-hand best-selling account that celebrates abortion. We’ve already …

Flawed New Study Claims Abortion does not affect women’s mental health

By Dave Andrusko Coming to an utterly predictable outcome, a review commissioned by the [British] Academy of Medical Royal Colleges has concluded that “abortion is not associated with an increase in mental health problems.” Billed as the largest study worldwide of the relationship between abortion and mental wellbeing, the research review conducted by the U.K.’s …

Dr. Coleman Rebuts Criticism of Study Demonstrating Abortion’s Detrimental Mental Health Impact

By Dave Andrusko It’s hardly news that research documenting abortion’s negative  mental health aftermath will come under scathing attack. Professor Priscilla Coleman may have come under the fiercest attack, a reflection no doubt of the depth and breadth of her research and the fact that her and her colleagues’ work has appeared in peer-reviewed publications, …

Another study showing a strong link between abortion and mental health problems

By Dr. Peter Saundes I’m grateful to AAPLOG [the American Association of Pro Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists ] for drawing my attention to yet another study showing a strong link between abortion and mental illness. The paper, titled ‘Associations Between Abortion, Mental Disorders, and Suicidal Behaviour in a Nationally Representative Sample’ was published in theCanadian Journal of Psychiatry in April 2010 …

A Healthy Skepticism Required of those Skeptical of the Association between Abortion and Mental Health Risks

By Dave Andrusko To the uncommitted  in general, and especially to those who are not moved by the plight of the defenseless unborn child, it can make a great deal of difference if it is established that abortion hurts women. Pro-lifers have been making that case for decades with an occasional assistance from self-described “pro-choicers” …

David Fergusson wades in to defend Coleman over abortion mental health link

By Dr. Peter Saunders Priscilla Coleman’s recent meta-analysis showing a link between abortion and mental health problems not surprisingly has created a storm, coming as it did in the middle of the recent parliamentary debate over independent abortion counseling. Whilst the left wing press and the BBC chose to ignore it, other academics in the …
