Later Abortions Linked to Psychological Problems: Study (JP, 8/2010)

 

A study of women who had abortions has found that women undergoing later abortions face increased psychological risks, are more likely to be ambivalent about having an abortion and are more likely to need counseling and support.

 

The study, “Late-Term Elective Abortion and Susceptibility to Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms,” was published in the August 2010 issue of the Journal of Pregnancy.
