General After-Effects of Abortion

Anti-choice activists have encouraged publicity suggesting abortion harms women. On average one in three women in the UK will have an abortion in their lifetime – to suggest that they all suffer serious after-effects of abortion is a clear exaggeration.  A great deal of research has been undertaken over several decades to establish whether there is any link between abortion and damage to a woman’s physical and/or psychological health. The findings demonstrate that these anti-choice  claims are untrue.
