Another study verifies high death risk after abortion

Another Finnish study, linking medical records with death records, finds a significantly higher risk of death after abortion compared to women who have given birth, miscarried, or not experienced a pregnancy.

Remembering that correlation isn't causality, this may be because women who choose abortion are living a high-risk lifestyle. But if that's the case -- if abortion is a symptom of a high-risk lifestyle, rather than a cause -- public health officials still ought to do something to help women to break out of these risky lifestyles.
