Antiabortion activists have relied on questionable science in their efforts to push inclusion of the concept of “post-abortion syndrome” in both clinical practice and law….

Our inability to replicate the findings of the Coleman study makes it clear that research claiming to find relationships between abortion and poor mental health indicators should be subjected to close scrutiny.

~Dr. Lawrence Finer of the Guttmacher Institute (former research arm of the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood), on his analysis of the 2009 National Comorbidity Survey data, as quoted by CBSNews.com, December 14.

Finer is also on the Society of Family Planning’s Board of Directors, which “funds scientific research that can help strengthen family planning policies, services and programs; develops evidence-based clinical guidelines for practitioners; holds an annual meeting in partnership with the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America; and contributes to the publication of the monthly journal Contraception.
