“If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine.” –Michael J. Tucker

Not that the crazy fundies will listen to it, but the American Psychological Association reports after an extensive two year study that abortion does not cause mental illness.

The chairwoman of the panel, Brenda Major, says:

“The best scientific evidence published indicates that among adult women who have an unplanned pregnancy, the relative risk of mental health problems is no greater if they have a single elective, first-trimester abortion or deliver that pregnancy.”

Not that the crazies believe in science anyway…
