A major survey carried out under the auspices of the Royal College of Psychiatrists has looked into whether having an abortion increases the risk of mental health problems.
Prof Tim Kendall, who wrote the report based on the survey, believes the findings show that there should be a shift in the focus of the practice and research towards "women with unwanted pregnancies rather than abortions themselves".
Dr Peter Saunders, chief executive of the Christian Medical Fellowship, says that the findings are showing there is "no evidence that the risk of continuing a pregnancy is greater than the risk of an abortion".
