these are the results of the largest research study of this type that’s been done….
(and if nothing else….no matter where you stand on this issue….these results present a strong case for further investigation…)
that we ..as a nation..have such a high abortion rate..can be of little comfort to most…and further research (without ideological blinkers) is clearly called for..
national radio…(in a show of ‘balance’) had a dr carol shand on to debunk the findings…
she (drew a long bow)…and said these findings were questionable because the abortions had been justified/performed on mental health grounds in the first place….so therefor..(according to dr shand)..thse women of course would have higer rates of depression/suicidal thoughts/substance abuse issues than those women who had not had abortions..
now…we all know that nobody seeking an abortion is refused…that the claims of mental health issues are little but a de-facto rubber-stamp for the operation….
(so that really makes the good doctors’ words a bit of a crock..eh..?….false science indeed..)
and of course..if as the doctor says..abortions are justified by the mental health state of the woman…these results/figures clearly show that having that abortion is clearly not a solution/help for any mental health problems suffered by the mother..(in fact..would appear to have just the opposite result to that intended..)
(as i noted at the beginning of this piece…this call and response between researcher and abortion advocate is..if nothing else.. a clear indicator for that need for non-ideologically blinkered research/discussion…..eh..?)
