Australian opinion and lifestyle website Mamamia this morning deleted an article about post-abortion syndrome (PAS), a condition that is oft-cited by anti-choice groups and church-backed "crisis pregnancy centres", but one which is widely discredited by scientific research and medical professionals.

"Mamamia has always been well known for its pro-choice stance and we have an 11-year history of content and advocacy in this area," managing editor Leigh Campbell told BuzzFeed News on Monday morning. "We have made the decision to remove this story while we further investigate its provenance."
