I haven't read the whole article (it's a pay article, with just a teaser freebie), but this bit in the sidebar got my attention:
A motivation to die, often fueled by mental illness, is only part of the problem. To intentionally end their own life, people need the will to carry out their plans. This resolve depends on factors such as fearlessness and being able to tolerate pain and to act impulsively.
Abortion is encouraged as a comparatively impulsive act, with staff pointing out that delays in deciding mean increases in price and risk. The same woman who signs for an abortion, then later turns out to still be pregnant, can choose to carry that same pregnancy to term after having had the additional time to reflect (albeit on a pregnancy she thought she'd ended).
Does poor impulse control contribute to both abortion and suicide?
I'd love to see some research.
