The key section of the article is:

"However, local researchers are adamant the findings do not conclude abortion causes mental disorders or drug abuse, saying the study did not examine other contributing factors -- including whether the mental disorder existed before a woman had an abortion."

Proving cause and effect is a bitch. This idea that abortion causes these negative outcomes has been rebuted long ago.

Abortion is a failure to use birth control properly and a failure to understand the consquences of your actions.
Who is more likely to fail to use birth control properly - a drug addict or a non-drug addict ?

To put this another way, I could point to studies showing being left handed has a slight link to negative life outcomes. Does this mean that switching a kid to being a righty would have changed this ? No. A certain percentage of left handers are lefthanded because their brains did not develop properly - these problems lead to both being lefthanded and the other negative consequences.

"Mental Disorders" and "Drug Abuse" are pretty strong measures or terms; probably too strong given correlation alone.

It would be better to say that evidence suggests that abortion is something that causes some degree of emotional duress for the women who have abortions.
