Possible links between abortions
and subsequent medical problems:
As with so many other religious, ethical, sexual, cultural, and medical
controversies, there exists two solitudes on the question of links between
abortion and subsequent medical and mental health.
||Many social and religious conservatives and pro-lifers sincerely believe that strong links exist.
||Many mental health professionals, medical experts, abortion providers,
pro-lifers and others sincerely believe that such links are minimal or non-existent.
Both groups claim to support their beliefs with the results of studies.
