Britain’s Royal College: Abortion doesn’t increase mental health problems. But maybe it does…

The review was released Friday by Britain’s Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and the Royal College of Psychiatrists. It was paid for by the U.K.’s department of health.

Dr. Kate Guthrie, a spokeswoman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said in a statement it was key that health care staff provide follow-up care to women vulnerable to mental health problems after they terminated their pregnancy. She was not connected to the review.

Guthrie said the group recently revised its own guidelines on abortion to highlight the need for health care workers to tell women about the “range of emotional responses” that might be experienced during and after an abortion.

Editor’s note: I don’t know about the British, but abortion certainly causes mental anguish for millions, world-wide. There’s something inherently unsettling about plucking unborn babies from a woman’s belly, and brutally dismembering and killing them (not necessarily in that order.) Psychopaths excepted.
