TIME Reports Abortion Low Birth Weight Preterm Birth Link

TIME has published an article on the study linking abortion to subsequent low birth weight and preterm birth.

Abortions increase the risk of low birth weight in future pregnancies by a factor of three, and of premature birth by a factor of two, according to the largest U.S. study of its kind.

. . .

The study not only found a link between abortion or miscarriage and low birth weight, but it also found that the risk appears to increase with every subsequent miscarriage or abortion.

. . .

Women need to be informed about these risks.
