Abortion, legislations, clinical rights and professional responsibility

Shaista Mir

An abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It is done by a licensed health care professional. It can be done two different ways: 1. Medication abortion, which uses medicines to end the pregnancy. It is sometimes called a "medical abortion" or "abortion with pills."2. Procedural abortion, a procedure to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. It is sometimes called a "surgical abortion." The actual incidence of abortion world-wide is not known. Estimates range from 30-55 million a year or about 40-70 per thousand women of reproductive age, with an abortion ratio of 260-450 per thousand live births. In India it has been computed that about 6 million abortions take place every year, of which 4 million are induced and 2 million spontaneous.
