Springfield, IL -- The evidence that abortion has negative
effects on women, men, siblings, and society grows with every passing year.
The most comprehensive and current resource for tracking the latest medical
findings on abortion complications is the ongoing bibliography Detrimental
Effects of Abortion: An Annotated Bibliography with Commentary.
The 2003 supplement to Detrimental
Effects of Abortion is now being made available to the public free
of charge. The supplement contains 59 new entries covering studies
on topics such as depression, psychiatric hospitalization, substance abuse,
repeat abortions, cancer, ectopic pregnancy, reproductive complications,
and other problems after abortion. Included in the supplement are summaries
of the latest Elliot Institute studies that have been published in peer-
reviewed medical journals.
The complete 2001 edition of Detrimental
Effects of Abortion is a 336-page bibliography with more than 1,200
entries to studies related to abortion complications and abortion decision-
making. The first supplement was published in the fall of 2002. Both
supplements, which add about 10 percent to the number of entries in the
main volume, are available as free downloads www.afterabortion.org/news/dea_supp2.html.
Entries in the book and supplements include summaries of key research
findings to assist women, men, families, students, speakers, pro-life activists,
medical and mental health professionals, clergy, and post-abortion counselors
to quickly understand the most current literature and find the most relevant
sources for more complete information.
The editor of Detrimental
Effects of Abortion, Thomas W. Strahan, passed away in 2003. The second supplement includes a tribute to Strahan by noted post-abortion
researcher Dr. David Reardon, who calls Strahan a "hidden giant" because
of his contributions to documenting the harm abortion has done to women,
men, children and society.
