Study shows abortion triples risk of depression

Evening Standard UK 27 Oct 06
Women who have abortions are three times as likely to suffer depression and other mental illness, it emerged yesterday. Senior doctors claim new evidence shows a clear link between abortion and mental health problems in women who previously had no history of such illness. They believe the risks are being ‘played down’ so women wanting an abortion are kept in the dark. As a result those considering having an abortion should be warned of the dangers, says a group of leading specialists.
