The pro-abortion Left will stop at nothing to make abortion up until birth the law of the land.

They’ll even go as far as twisting the results of a so-called “medical study.”

And now a closer look has revealed some major issues with a study about women’s mental health issues.

A recent study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) is making headlines, claiming that pro-life laws are causing a mental health crisis among women. 

The Left wants to blare this message to the masses, but a closer look reveals some huge issues with this false narrative. 

But before you fall for the mainstream media hype, let’s uncover the truth behind this flawed research.

First off, let’s talk methodology. 

The study relies on data from a national survey with a shockingly low 6 percent response rate. 

That’s right, you heard it correctly — a measly 6 percent! 

With such a dismal response rate, can we really trust the validity of these findings? 

It’s entirely possible that those most upset about the Dobbs decision were more likely to respond, skewing the results in favor of their agenda.

But wait, there’s more! 

The study focuses on so-called “trigger states,” where pro-life laws would automatically kick in if Roe v. Wade were overturned. 

However, here’s the kicker — not all of these trigger states actually saw pro-life laws take effect post-Dobbs

In fact, states like Utah and Wyoming were counted as trigger states, even though pro-life laws were never enforced there. 

Talk about cherry-picking data to fit a narrative!

And if you thought the results were groundbreaking, think again. 

According to the study’s own measurements, the impact of the Dobbs leak and decision on women’s mental health was minimal at best. 

We’re talking about changes of less than a sixth of one percentage point on a twelve-point scale. 

Hardly the catastrophic mental health crisis that the media would have you believe!

But here’s where it gets really interesting. 

While the study claims to focus on women, it turns out that men in trigger states actually experienced a larger decrease in mental health compared to women. 

So much for their narrative about women bearing the brunt of pro-life laws!

Now, let’s talk about better ways to analyze mental health. 

Instead of relying on flimsy survey data, why not look at concrete indicators like suicides, suicide attempts, and visits to mental health professionals? 

These metrics would provide a much clearer picture of any changes in psychological well-being.

But of course, the authors of this study and their allies in the mainstream media have one goal in mind — to paint pro-life laws in a negative light. 

They’ll stop at nothing to push their agenda, even if it means distorting the facts and misleading the public.

So, what’s the takeaway from all this? 

Pro-lifers, stay the course! 

Don’t let biased research and sensationalist headlines sway you from defending the sanctity of life. 

The truth is out there, and it’s up to us to uncover it.
