Congress Should Not Legitimize the Mythical “Post-Abortion Syndrome”

Anti-choice activists have long hoped to find scientific support for their claims that abortion causes a range of negative effects on women who choose this reproductive option – from increased rates of breast cancer to higher rates of depression, even to a supposed “link” with alcoholism. Anti-choice lawmakers have focused especially on trying to pursue the existence of “post-abortion syndrome,” a supposed psychological phenomenon that has never been shown to exist by any legitimate scientific or medical study. In fact, these claims have been disproven by a long line of credible, scientific research.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
