Who's REALLY Telling the "Big Lie"?

Yesterday, the Washington Post published an op/ed entitled "The big lie about abortion and mental health" -- which concluded that there were no notable mental health risks attributable to abortion.

Over at National Review, Priscilla Coleman, who has conducted extensive academic research in this area, contradicts the piece, questions (rightly) why the WaPo ran it without any dissenting perspective, and notes:
 
A conservative estimate from the best available data is 20 to 30 percent of women who undergo an abortion will experience serious and/or prolonged negative consequences.

That's a pretty big percentage.  But then again, abortion is a pretty big business in this country -- finally, I guess, a big business the President can support.
