View profile for: Dr. Ian Gentles

Rigorously researched and scientifically documented, Complications: Abortion's Impact on Women examines the role of abortion in almost every aspect of women's health: depression, infertility, autoimmune disease, cancer, and intimate partner violence, to name a few. Each of the 21 chapters explores an issue in depth, thoroughly examining published studies from across the globe to find the common threads that might be missed otherwise. This book uses language that is accessible to the lay person, but in a comprehensive way that will be useful for any professional working in women's health issues: health care professionals, counsellors, policy makers, teachers, government officials. Any woman who has experienced an abortion or who might be contemplating one needs to read this book.
