Abortion does not reduce mental health risks.

Professor David Fergusson of the University of Otago in New Zealand has published a research paper on abortion and mental health which has huge implications for abortion laws.

In it he re-appraises the research on this issue and concludes that there is no evidence that abortion reduces mental health consequences for women.

This is hugely significant for the abortion law in England, Scotland, and Wales. 98% of abortions are carried out on grounds that continuing with the pregnancy constitutes a greater risk to the mother’s mental health than an abortion does.

Professor Fergusson's research therefore suggests that these abortions are technically illegal!

Philippa Taylor of the Christian Medical Fellowship gives more detail on the CMF blog which may be accessed at:

For those who are concerned about the number of abortions that take place in the United Kingdom, this will be very interesting reading.

I can possibly understand a woman who has been raped and finds herself pregnant with the rapists child wanting to abort as soon as she knows she IS pregnant. BUT...... and I hear this happens a lot with Chinese families..... To have an abortion just because the child is not the desired gender is TOTALLY wrong.

This situation may be more common in the UK than has been realised.

If this is happening in the UK, who is to say that it is not happening in other "developed" countries, as well!
