As compared to pregnant women with no history of induced abortion, the women with a history of induced abortion more than 1 year ago reported higher anxiety scores during the first trimester. The pregnant women with a history of induced abortion less than one year ago reported significantly more cases of depression than those with no history of abortion during the second trimester. In conclusion, though there were no significant differences between the evaluated groups of women in terms of the scores, when it comes to symptoms or “cases”, the association was statistically significant, which indicated that the women with a history of induced abortion were more likely to be diagnosed with certain anxiety or depression disorders, and this result has great clinical importance
But there's no link between abortion and mental health whatsoever. None at all.
