LifeSiteNews.com

CHAPEL HILL, NC, January 16, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Researchers at the University of North Carolina have found that “induced abortion increases risks for both a subsequent pre-term delivery and mood disorders substantial enough to provoke attempts of self-harm.”  The study published in the current edition of the Obstetrical & Gynecological Survey concluded that “informed consent before induced abortion should include information about the subsequent risk of pre-term delivery and depression.”  Moreover, the study notes that “avoidance of induced abortion has potential as a strategy to reduce” the prevalence of pre-term delivery and depression. The study also found that “a decision to abort and delay pregnancy culminates in a loss of protection” against breast cancer.  See the abstract of the study in the OGS at:  http://ipsapp006.lwwonline.com/content/getfile/2888/29/23/abstract.htm
