Some links from the past couple of weeks:
The UK Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AMRC) last week published the world’s largest, most comprehensive and systematic review of mental health outcomes and abortion care, the conclusion of which is that abortions do not increase a woman’s chance of developing mental health problems. RH Reality Check has a good summary (and a link to the AMRC website, where you can download a copy of the full review).
DJ Jay Smooth has some thoughts about the ‘Until Abortion Ends’ videos.
The Abortioneers write abortion haiku (I think I might have a go at that too).
And check out this nifty comparison of various birth control methods.

Re the UK review of mental health outcomes:
“The study claims that abortion is not statistically worse for women’s mental health than the alternative. It does not claim that abortion is inconsequential…
…The pro-life position is not at all disadvantaged by Friday’s report. In fact, it may have been unwittingly handed a strong argument for vastly limiting pregnancy terminations — at least in countries with abortion regulations similar to the UK’s.
Accepting the claim that carrying a baby to term produces no worse mental health results for the mother than does aborting the baby would actually gut the British abortion legislation, for one.”
