Responds to comments by R. S. Kahn (NLS bibliography entry #4104), S. Goddik (NLS bibliography entry #4102), and D. L. Billings (NLS bibliography entry #4103)on the D. C. Reardon and J. R. Cougle examination of depression and unintended pregnancy in the US National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. Reardon and Cougle state that their findings are at least sufficient to cast doubt on the prevailing hypotheses that unintended deliveries are more harmful to emotional health than abortion and that any subsequent differences associated with outcome of pregnancy can be explained entirely by prior mental state.
