TIME: New Study Links Abortion to Prematurity

From TIME Magazine:

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 report, published today in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health (JECH), shows one of the strongest links yet between miscarriage or abortion on premature birth and low birth weight — major risk factors for infant death or sickness.

It's a very comprehensive study with a concerted effort to eliminate the variables (behavioral, socio-economic, racial, etc.) that have plagued prior studies that had similar results but were criticized for the variable interference.
