Don’t Safe Abortions contribute to World Health?
Posted on 7 April, 2017 by Asia Safe Abortion Partnership
The World Health Day marks the creation of the World Health Organization (W.H.O). The W.H.O was established in 1948 to provide direction to global health policy to ensure quality healthcare for all. http://www.who.int/en/
The theme for World Health Day this year is Depression.
Studies have shown that roughly 12 % of all women suffer from mental health problems, and that number shoots up to about one third for women who’ve experienced unwanted pregnancies. Since rates of mental problems were the same for women who had abortions and women who went through with their pregnancy, the researchers concluded that it isn’t abortion that’s the problem, but the unwanted pregnancy. http://jezebel.com/5866568/an-abortion-wont-make-you-crazy-but-an-unwanted-pregnancy-might
That means one in every three women with an unwanted pregnancy will suffer from depression!
