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.

Here's the Amazon link.

In this review of the book at spiked-health by abortion provider Ann Furedi, I was interested in Furedi's comment that in years past, when she dismissed the idea that post-abortion counseling was unnecessary, "It was a rhetorical device...which I won't be using any more."
