"Graciously bestow upon all men felicity, the summit of which is the knowledge of the Gods." [Julian, Oration to the Mother of the Gods]

>Abortion and mental health problems: No relationship. None. Zip. Nada.

>AP science reporter Alicia Chang (SciWriAlicia on twitter) has penned an excellent write-up of a new Danish study that shows that: Abortion Doesn’t Increase Mental Health Risk, But Having A Baby Does. (That’s the headline of Chang’s piece as it appears at the Huffington Post. The article was also carried by The Washington Post and many other media outlets.)

Results of the study have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, with Trine Munk-Olsen as the lead author. Here is a link: Induced First-Trimester Abortion and Risk of Mental Disorder. The full paper is available only to subscribers, but anyone can read the detailed summary that is provided for the general public.
