New Study into Effects of Abortion shows increased mental health problems 81%.

In a new study released this month in the British Journal of Psychiatry, abortion, that famous “right” fought for by the sisterhood for so many years and “celebrated with champagne” when open abortion to 40 weeks was legalised, has now been found to  have increased self destructive behaviours in statistical figures previously unacknowledged at least publicly.

Largest ever study finds abortion increases risk of severe mental health problems by 81%” and goes on to outline findings.

This very large study using 877,181 participants out of which 161,831 had had abortions was stringent in its methodology.  In a meta analysis of 22 prior studies,  leaving out all possible confounding variables, eg past mental health issues, and using very strong inclusion criteria, that is prior studies to be included, (eg size of prior study) and prior history of participants, this makes Dr Priscilla Coleman’s study the most comprehensive and detailed study showing staggering results into the damage which abortion does to women.  And this  further calls into serious question the American Psychological Association’s own position that no deleterious effect  is experience by an adult women having single abortion. This in itself because most abortion are not done by “adult woman” but by teenagers as young as 12years of age and upwards.  The “single” adult woman is the career woman or one night stand “woman”  and these too are long term effected by their abortion experience.

This study further finds that there has been a coverup by those who should have known better.  That the political nature of “right to abortion” hard fought for by the pro choice, pro abortion lobbies, have seriously let down those whom they were supposed to care for… women.

Imagine some of these this study abortion  is associated with 34% increased risk of anxiety disorders.  37% greater risk of depression, 110% greater risk of alcohol abuse, a whopping 220% greater risk of marijuana use and abuse (and what about other substances like Ice, Meth, cocaine etc) and a whopping 155% greater risk of attempting suicide. Imagine over all the creased mental health issues of women  10% are directly. Linked to abortion…50,000,000 abortions yearly…means  5,000,000 serious mental health issues attributed to abortion, and we wonder why society is in pain. These are extremely disturbing and upsetting results and its nothing new to me. I have seen all these expressions of distress following abortion for the last 15 years, and have endured mockery and derision and cyber-abuse by pro abortion lobbyist.

Today we have a seriously hurt women and society, as we continue to abort babies in the millions we also abort the peace of their mothers.  We women were NOT meant to abort (kill) our babies, there is something deeply embedded within us that cannot allow that to happen and not affect our behaviour and understanding of who we are. Our femininity is tied to being able to carry an infant in our wombs and bring it to full life, and not to take it to be killed.  We grieve unintentional death of our infants (miscarriage/stillbirth) yet women taken their babies to die at the behest of another or even their own design and its supposed to be OK?  that is not our design and mandate.   And in this understanding then we self harm, self mutilate.

This study can be found in the British Journal of Psychiatry.
