American Academy of Pediatrics' Abortion Articles Over The Years
As you'd guess, there aren't many recent ones.
This one is from 1981, about 3 years after I had my abortion as a just-past-adolescent: Adolescent Suicide Attempts Following Elective Abortion: A Special Case of Anniversary Reaction
AbstractAll but one of the 14 hits on that site with "abortion" in the title appeared prior to 1998.
Pregnancy continues to be a common occurrence among adolescents, often producing psychosocial stress. This report describes two female adolescent patients who, following elective abortion, attempted suicide on the approximate date the fetus would have been born had it come to term. Recognition of adolescents who are emotionally vulnerable and at high risk for self-destructiveness may be beneficial in the management and follow-up of such patients.

The most recent one is this, from 2006: Is the High Rate of Preterm Birth in the United States Linked to Previous Induced Abortions? The short answer is: Yes (and Annie blogged about related research on this almost 10 years ago):
There is empirical evidence to support the claim that repeated induced abortions are a risk factor for premature delivery in subsequent pregnancies, as demonstrated by a case-control study aimed at describing the risk factors for premature births undertaken in 16 European countries.1In this study, which included 2938 women who delivered before 37 weeks' gestation and 4781 who delivered at term, there was no increased risk associated with 1 previous induced abortion (odds ratio [OR]: 1.15; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.99–1.33 [in all countries]; and OR: 1.08; 95% CI: 0.86–1.36 [in Western European countries]), but the risk increased significantly when women had ≥2 previous abortions (OR: 1.63; 95% CI: 1.3–2.0 [for all countries]..."Two or more previous abortions significantly increased later risk for premature delivery, increasing risk to the preemie baby and thus to the mom also.
