Length: 11 pages (2346 Words)
Does abortion affect mental health? Are the two related? The proposed study aims to explore and analyze mental health issues that may result from an abortion. Among the issues considered include anxiety, depression, suicidal behavior, alcohol and drug abuse the connection between abortion and mental health is considered weak since previous studies have not linked it with enough evidence. The participants of the study comprise of 100 women aged between sixteen and 25 years that had an abortion within the last one year. The study will engage the participants with a clinical interview to enable them obtain suitable information about their medical history and the medical history of their families. One condition of inclusion in the study is that a participant should not have a history of mental illness before or during the abortion. The interview will also consider factors such as violence exposure, poverty, and history of drug and substance abuse. The participants are also required not to have experienced other factors that may cause poor mental health. The study will be conducted over duration of 20 years to determine variations that may be caused by long-term effects. Participants will be interviewed once per year for the first five years after which interviews will be conducted after every five years. The interviews will be conducted comprehensively to ensure that all aspects of mental health can be identified, especially the discussion of significant events that may have occurred since abortion was performed. This is important to help account for factors that may lead to other mental disorders not related to the abortion factor.
