More Denial: Abortion and Mental health

Women who had undergone an abortion experienced an 81% increased risk of mental health problems, and nearly 10% of the incidence of mental health problems was shown to be attributable to abortion.
The British Journal of Psychiatry has shown that abortion increases a woman's chance of mental health problems by 81%. This is the largest study to date with 877,181 participants. At one level it should be quite obvious, that killing an unborn child could never be good for anyone's mental health, but we are a culture in denial, when it comes to the repercussions of our choices.

On another note, perhaps abortion providers sbould be hels financially accountable for the increased demand that their businesses are placing on overstretched mental health services?

O Mary, Mother of the Life Within,
all life we entrust to you;
The life of every expectant mother
and the child within her womb:
The life of every human body,
the life of every human soul;
The life of every newborn child
and the life of all grown old.
You held the Lord to your own heart
and drew Him so close in.
So draw us now in all our needs,
O Mother of the Life Within.

This is a collation of many primary studies; the biggest ever of its kind. We all have the anecdotal evidence of what abortion does to a woman's mental health, not to mention her physical and spiritual health but it is good to have these statistical studies too. As usual with studies which show the damage that abortion causes, it has been ignored all over the place since it came out 7 days ago, particularly in UK (where it might have worked in favour of the Dorries/Field Bill that attempted to require pre-abortion counselling, if being availed of, to be done by someone independent of the abortionists.
