Is Abortion Safe?

 

Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘Is Abortion Safe?’

 

Did you know over 99.75% of abortions do not cause major medical problems? 

In the early 1970s, the Population Council and CDC conducted a significant study on abortion safety; they concluded that abortion was considerably safer than continuing a pregnancy to delivery. By 1975, the Institute of Medicine had concluded that the public health benefits of abortion were well established. 

 

 

Recently, researchers at UC-San Francisco used California Medicaid data on 54,911 abortions to see how many women had an emergency room visit or hospitalization as a result. The overall complication rate was 2% and most complications were minor. Only 0.03% of patients were transferred by ambulance to an emergency department on the day of the abortion.

So, if you are still asking: “Is abortion safe?,” here are a few more helpful points.

  1. A medical abortion that is performed in the United States in an Ob/Gyn’s office is safe and effective care. 
  2. 3 in 10 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old. 
  3. Complications for all abortions are rare and safer when performed earlier in gestation. 
  4. While any type of procedure carries associated risks that no medical procedure is 100% safe. The possibility of any major complication occurring in a hospital is 0.31% while the risk of minor complications such as an infection or failure from medicine is about 2-5%.  
  5. Abortion is very common. In the hands of an experienced physician, it is 99.7% safe while giving birth is 14 times riskier than having an abortion.
