three points:

One: those asking for “exorcism” are often mentally ill. Mentally ill people often accuse others of abuse.

Two: A priest does not do an “exorcism” alone. He does it after the psychiatrists check out the patient, and the bishop approves. The prayers are done with a group of believers present, not by the priest alone, and usually a doctor is present too. So did they all “abuse” her?

three: Kaching!

"three points:"

Actually four points. We cannot discount an actual possession in which a demon is present within the woman, one intent on harming the Church and its clergy.

There was no "all." And exorcisms are not treatment for the mentally ill.
