WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two new studies out this week add to the body of research evidence clearly showing again that abortion is associated with increased risk of adverse mental health effects. The two peer-reviewed papers were published in the British Journal of Psychiatry and the Journal of Psychiatric Research. Both had strong methodology and controls for confounding or alternate variables. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080930/FRCLOGO ) "The...

By Corbin, Ian Marcus Yale senior Aliza Shvarts has gone too far-or maybe she hasn't. According to a press release that Shvarts sent to the Yale Daily News on Wednesday, April 16, over a recent nine-month period, the senior art major artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" and then induced miscarriages by means of herbal abortifacient pills. At first blush, her actions bespeak a morbidly unsound mind, but what makes Shvarts' actions even more outrageous is that she is-by all...

By Stephanie Clifford After a lawsuit from a British anti-abortion group, Google is allowing religious organizations to take out ads using the keyword "abortion."

The group filed a lawsuit against Google in April, saying the company was discriminating on religious grounds. Google said Wednesday that it had reached a...

By Sarah Cassidy Google Has been forced to abandon its ban on religious organisations placing anti-abortion ads on its site after it was sued by a pro-life charity. Google settled out of court with The Christian Institute, a UK- based non-denominational charity, yesterday and will now allow religious groups to place factual and campaigning ads about abortion. The new policy will apply world-wide with immediate effect. The Christian Institute wanted to advertise with Google by paying so...

So Nancy Pelosi says the "doctors of the church" haven't been able to define when life begins. What kind of doctors are they? Scientific, medical, theological? No church "doctor" can convince me he knows when a soul enters a fetus; only the Creator knows when life begins. That knowledge certainly doesn't come from a theological "debate." To most people, especially liberated pro-choice people, abortion isn't a religious thing at all; it is the removal of an unwanted growing body with an...

Once again the Republican Party platform leaves no exceptions when calling for a total ban on abortion. It opposes the teachings of the LDS Church. On the other hand, the new Democratic platform says, "Abortion should be safe, legal and rare." In this year's version it even heralds adoption incentives. It feels good to belong to a political party that supports my beliefs on such a critical issue. Joseph Price Sandy (c) 2008 Deseret News (Salt Lake City). Provided by ProQuest LLC. All...

By KAREN LIPINCZYK Special to the Courier & Press Somehow you missed it. On Aug. 13, the American Psychological Association released its task force report on mental health and abortion (www.apa.org/releases/abortion-report.pdf). It is not surprising that "a critical evaluation of the published literature revealed that the majority of studies suffered from methodological problems, often severe in nature." Given this, the study determined that "the best scientific evidence published...

The American Psychological Association said it has found no evidence that abortion causes mental health problems for women. "There is no credible evidence that a single elective abortion of an unwanted pregnancy in and of itself causes mental health problems for adult women," said a draft report released Tuesday by an APA task force. The conclusion was reached after an evaluation of empirical studies published in English in peer-reviewed journals since 1989. The report was presented...

By Toby Green A Romanian government committee is to decide today whether an 11- year old Romanian girl raped by her uncle can travel to Britain for an abortion. The case has provoked a bitter debate that has divided the country, where more than 80 per cent of the population belong to the Orthodox Church. The girl is 20 weeks pregnant, but in Romania abortion is only legal up to 14 weeks, unless the mother's health is in danger. Her family want to take the girl to Britain, where abortion...
