Psychiatrists' abortion draft report biased says leading pro-life group SPUC London, 10 April 2011 - A draft report by the Royal College of Psychiatrists is biased in favour of abortion, says leading pro-life group the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC).
John Smeaton, SPUC's director, commented: "The college's draft report, issued last week, concludes that there is no causal link between abortion and mental health problems. This conclusion, however, flies in the face of well-established studies which do show such a causal link. There is an increasing number of women all over the world testifying to how abortion has damaged them psychologically. These women will be very upset at the disservice done to them by the college's false conclusion. It should also be noted that there are no studies which show that abortion has even one psychological or physical benefit."
