Women's health after abortion

Abortion is wrong because it is the unjust killing of innocent, unborn human beings. But it can also have devastating consequences for the other persons involved.

Women's Health after Abortion: The Medical and Psychological Evidence is a 2003 book published by the deVeber Institute. Authors Elizabeth Ring-Cassidy and Ian Gentles provide an excellent and thorough analysis of research regarding the effect of abortion on women's health -- both physical and psychological, short- and long-term.

The entire book is available online here. Individual topics are easy to access, and there are helpful summaries of the findings.
