Medpundit Sydney Smith picks up on last week's article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal that shows increased rates of psychiatric hospitalization for women who terminate pregnancies versus those who carry to term.

The Medpundit notes that the study doesn't get to the root of why women who abort would be 2.6 times as likely to require acute psychiatric care. Is it the abortion? Is it the lack of social support in their life that led to the abortion?

She writes:

"That’s a study I’d like to see - a survey of abortion clinic clients asking whether or not the abortion was their idea, or their boyfriend’s or parents’. That would tell us something about the state of abortion in this country - and the amount of personal choice involved in it."
