According to the Webster’s medical dictionary abortion is the premature exit of the products of conception (the fetus, fetal membranes, and placenta) from the uterus. It is the loss of a pregnancy and does not refer to why that pregnancy was lost. A spontaneous abortion is the same as a miscarriage. The miscarriage of 3 or more consecutive pregnancies is termed habitual abortion. In certain countries there are laws against abortion and many people will criticize anyone that takes the decision without even knowing the cause. Now days many young women go tru abortion and the cause of this action are so many. According to a source ¨Abortion when induced, is among the safest procedures in medicine. However, unsafe abortion result approximately 70,000 maternal deaths and 5 million hospital admission per year globally. An estimated 44 million abortions are performs globally each year, with under half of those performed unsafely. The incidence of abortion has stabilized in recent years, having previously spent decades declining as access to family planning, education and contraceptive services increased. Forty percent of the world’s women have access to induced abortions. (Wikipedia on abortion) I think the health risk of abortion depends if the procedure is performs safely or not. Maybe women looking to terminate their pregnancies sometimes take the decision to perform unsafe methods, mostly when access to legal abortion is restricted in some countries. They may attempt to self-abort or trust another person who does not have correct medical experience. This has a tendency to lead to severe complications, such as incomplete abortion, hemorrhage and damage to internal organs. Some of the causes for abortion are social issues which can be a physical abuse which is a crime called rape, you don’t want to become a parent, you have no job, money or education or you were probably just talked into doing it or pushed to take the decision by a mate. There are many causes for abortion, some are not even mentioned in this essay but we do know that abortion is a experiences that no one would like to live because of the consequences it may cause.

In my opinion that some effects of abortion are that some women don't receive much support from their friends or family and is more likely to feel negative emotions. If she felt the pressure into having an abortion by someone else, instead of making her own decision she will regret it later. Some women might feel judge by taking this decision and feel depressed. When I was in high school I had a friend that took this decision, and experienced the effects that it causes, she taught that she had made the most terrible decision because everyone was criticizing her, she felt judge because her mother had told her that it was against her church and religion. By developing this essay I’m not trying to say that abortion is a good choice and I am definitely not against women that take the decision, because I think that every person has a reason for his or her action and judging by the book cover is unacceptable. I do think that many countries need to reform their law so that they can help women that have no other choice, but the government should help these women depending on their case. Any time you make a difficult life decision, it is normal to have second thoughts, but you cannot let anyone get in the way with this decision, because it’s your choice you have to do what is right for you and not what other people want you to do because you don’t know if they want good or bad for you.
