Increased risk for substance abuse after abortion

An Australian study has found that young women who have lost a pregnancy through abortion or miscarriage have an increased risk for substance abuse or developing a mood disorder in later life.

This coincides with another recent study done in New Zealand.

This makes a joke of the recent laws passed by the Victorian government increasing the availability of abortion.
