Patricia Coleman Is Full of Shit

From Psychology Today, an account of the thorough trashing of Patricia Coleman's latest effort to equate abortion and insanity. This time by UK's Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Much juiciness. Stuff like she used data from only 22 studies, 11 of them by herself. She counts her own data multiple times. Compares the equivalent of apples and oranges. And so on.

Sins against just about every law of science and truthiness, in short.

The author, Jim Coyne, promises further blogging on her background, which we look forward to, but mainly I'm posting this because of the photo.

Love the photo, as it so accurately sums on Coleman's logic.

That photo is awesome. It really captures conservative junk statistics.
