New Zealand Study Linking Abortion and Depression

STATEN ISLAND, NY, ( -- A New Zealand study that says abortion puts women at increased risk of anxiety and depression is but the latest in a long line of scientific reports that reach the same conclusion said leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign today.

"Science has for years been supporting what we already know from the public testimonies and the private devastation of post-abortive women," said Janet Morana, co-founder of SNMAC, the world's largest network of individuals harmed by abortion. "This study is one more rock on a mountain of evidence that when a woman terminates a life she has been nurturing, she cannot anesthetize her soul."
"The New Zealand study, published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, in its own words calls into question whether abortions can be justified for mental health reasons"" added Georgette Forney, another co- founder of SNMAC. "It's ironic that this study comes out as leaders in Congress try to expand access to abortion in the name of health care. In effect, pro- abortion politicians are seeking to cover a procedure that will only lead to more costly mental health care services down the road."

Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 3,423 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 489 gatherings in 48 states and eight countries where more than 103,000 spectators have heard the truth about abortion's negative aftereffects. More than 7,200 people are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign's goals.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website:
