Largest ever study finds abortion increases risk of severe mental health problems by 81%
“….the largest quantitative estimate of mental health risks associated with abortion available in the world literature.” The research revealed that abortion was associated with a 34% increased risk for anxiety disorders; 37% greater risk of depression; 110% greater risk of alcohol abuse and 220% greater risk of marijuana use/abuse. Abortion was also linked with a 155% greater risk of attempting to commit suicide.
I have said it before….abortion is bad for women.
Perhaps you are unaware of this study, which :
A) more clinically valid
B) more scientifically stringent
C) more comprehensive
D) less biased
E) produced using the proper methodology
F) published in the New England Journal of Medicine, and
G) points out that your “study” is full of shit.
Has it crossed your mind to wonder why a “researcher” in Bowling Green, OH had to go to the British Journal of Psychiatry to get her “study” published?
Do you have a theory as to why you had to go to Life Site “News” to obtain this “information?”
Are you aware of how the process of getting a study published works?
Did you bother to research Priscilla K. Coleman, whose work is “logically inconsistent” and potentially “substantially inflated” by faulty methodology?” Did you know that “other researchers have been unable to reproduce Coleman’s results on abortion and mental health despite using the same dataset?”
Did you know that, per the APA, “the studies by Coleman, and her co-authors have “inadequate or inappropriate” controls and don’t adequately control “for women’s mental health prior to the pregnancy and abortion?”
Do you understand causation? Correlation? Proper research methodology? Basic psychology? Basic math?
The only thing in this post that is bad for women: anti-choicers like yourself and “Dr.” Coleman, who continue to spread false information and stick your fingers in your ears yelling “LA LA LA LA LA” when confronted with science, math, and reality.
