Our readers will be interested in Abortion, Motherhood and Mental Health, a new book by pro-choice feminist Ellie Lee. In it, she argues that the evidence for widespread post-partum depression is scant, even though the medical community believes that it exists and is widespread. She compares the medical community's acceptance of post-partum depression to their rejection of the claim that there is such a thing as post-abortion distress that might also be widespread.
