While only fetus fetishists claim that there are links between abortion and breast cancer, abortion and mental illness, abortion and going str8t to hell, here again is Evidence that abortion is a medical procedure with little down-side and some proven up-side.
Affecting at least 5 percent to 8 percent of all pregnancies, pre-eclampsia is a rapidly progressive condition characterized by high blood pressure, the presence of protein in the urine, swelling, sudden weight gain and headaches, although some women report few symptoms. Women who have previously given birth to a child have lower risk of pre-eclampsia, the researchers said.
The study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, shows that women who have had two or more induced abortions reduced their risk for pre-eclampsia by 60 percent.
