News from The Elliot Institute:

"A recent study published in the prestigious American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG) attracted the ire of the Allan Guttmacher Institute (AGI).

The study by Coleman PK, Reardon DC, Rue VM, and Cougle JR, "History of induced abortion in relation to substance use during pregnancies carried to term," appeared in Am J Obstet Gynecol 2002; 187(5):1673-8.

Read more about the study here.

In a letter published in an August 2003 issue of AJOG, Alan Guttmacher researchers tried to dismiss the findings from this nationally representative study showing that abortion is associated with a higher risk of substance abuse in subsequent pregnancies.

Their arguments were weak but we were delighted to see them published since it gave the authors of the original study, including the Elliot Institute's director, Dr. Reardon, an opportunity to respond and further educate America's ob/gyn's."
