Self-reports of induced abortion: an empathetic setting can improve the quality of data. (1/48)

OBJECTIVES: This study estimated the proportion of incomplete abortions that are induced in hospital-based settings in Tanzania. METHODS: A cross-sectional questionnaire study was conducted in 2 phases at 3 hospitals in Tanzania. Phase 1 included 302 patients with a diagnosis of incomplete abortion, and phase 2 included 823 such patients. RESULTS: In phase 1, in which cases were classified by clinical criteria and information from the patient, 3.9% to 16.1% of the cases were classified as induced abortion. In phase 2, in which the structured interview was changed to an empathetic dialogue and previously used clinical criteria were omitted, 30.9% to 60.0% of the cases were classified as induced abortion. CONCLUSIONS: An empathetic dialogue improves the quality of data collected among women with induced abortion.  (+info)

The problem of illegally induced abortion: results from a hospital-based study conducted at district level in Dar es Salaam. (2/48)

Illegal abortion is known to be a major contributor to maternal mortality. The objective of the study was firstly to identify women with illegally induced abortion, (IA) and to compare them with women admitted with a spontaneous abortion (SA) or receiving antenatal care (AC), and secondly to describe the circumstances which characterized the abortion. The population of this cross-sectional questionnaire study comprised patients from Temeke District Hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. After an in-depth confidential interview, 603 women with incomplete abortion were divided into two groups: 362 women with IA and 241 with SA. They were compared with 307 AC women. IA women were significantly younger, more often better educated, unmarried, nulliparous and students than AC women. Regarding civil-status, educational level, proportion of nullipara and proportion of students, SA patients were similar to AC women. These results lend support to the assumption that the in-depth confidential interview made it possible to distinguish IA women from SA women.  (+info)

Psychological sequelae of elective abortion. (3/48)

A mild, short, depressive and guilt ridden period following abortion is quite common, but a severe psychological reaction is rare. The indication for the abortion and the preabortal psychological state of the patient are the two most important factors. Almost all reported instances of postabortion psychoses have occurred in patients who had severe preabortal psychiatric problems. Women undergoing abortion for socioeconomic or psychosocial indications appear to be at minimal risk for long-term negative psychological sequelae. In contrast, women in whom abortion is carried out because of exposure to rubella and the risk of fetal malformation, maternal organic disease or the prenatal diagnosis of a genetically defective fetus are at greater risk and may need supportive psychotherapy.  (+info)

The characteristics and treatment of these various conditions are described and principles outlined for the guidance of the general surgeon in dealing with gynaecological problem.  (+info)

Does the liberalisation of abortion laws increase the number of abortions? The case study of Spain. (5/48)

BACKGROUND: Over the course of the 1980s a public debate on abortion took place in Spain culminating in a more permissive social climate and, in 1985, the partial decriminalisation of abortion. Before this, women were forced to abort illegally or abroad in countries which had decriminalised abortions. The aim of this study is to present jointly the evolution of abortions in Spanish women in England and Wales between 1974 and 1995, The Netherlands between 1980 and 1995 and Spain since the start of the register in 1987 through to 1995 and to compare trends both before and after the law in Spain. METHODS: Incidence rates were calculated in each of the countries studied and the slopes of the curves for 1974-1984 and 1987-1995 were compared. Data were obtained from reports published by the offices of abortion surveillance in England and Wales, The Netherlands and Spain. RESULTS: The rates increased constantly throughout the study period. From 1974 to 1985, a total of 204,736 Spanish women aborted in England and Wales and The Netherlands. After the law was passed, 34,895 Spanish women had abortions in those countries over the period 1986-1995. During 1987-1995, 340,214 Spanish women terminated their pregnancies in Spain. The regression coefficients before and after the passing of the law were beta = 0.3538 (0.307-0.400) and beta = 0.319 (0.243-0.394) respectively; no difference was observed. CONCLUSIONS: During the study period a significant proportion of reproductive-aged Spanish women had abortions in England and Wales and The Netherlands. Decriminalisation has had no observed effect on the trends in abortion, but rather it has benefited Spanish women by making abortion available locally and, therefore, reducing the inequalities implied by lack of access to proper health care services. These data demonstrate the impact of the liberalisation of abortion on the trends of procedures performed in other countries.  (+info)

Reproductive tourism as moral pluralism in motion. (6/48)

Reproductive tourism is the travelling by candidate service recipients from one institution, jurisdiction, or country where treatment is not available to another institution, jurisdiction, or country where they can obtain the kind of medically assisted reproduction they desire. The more widespread this phenomenon, the louder the call for international measures to stop these movements. Three possible solutions are discussed: internal moral pluralism, coerced conformity, and international harmonisation. The position is defended that allowing reproductive tourism is a form of tolerance that prevents the frontal clash between the majority who imposes its view and the minority who claim to have a moral right to some medical service. Reproductive tourism is moral pluralism realised by moving across legal borders. As such, this pragmatic solution presupposes legal diversity.  (+info)

Criminal abortion. A consideration of ways to reduce incidence. (7/48)

The problem of criminal abortion in the United States is of enormous magnitude, both in terms of incidence and of resultant morbidity and mortality. Several studies suggest that one of every five pregnancies terminates in criminal abortion, or a total of more than one million abortions for 1960, with a possibility of more than 5,000 deaths resulting therefrom. The inadequate laws regarding therapeutic abortion in most jurisdictions contribute much to the problem. Tracing the origins of these laws provides additional clues concerning the development of this enigma. SUGGESTED ANSWERS TO THE PROBLEM INCLUDE: (1) Broadening and clarifying therapeutic abortion laws to reflect current medical practice, yet provide stringent controls; (2) prevention of unwanted pregnancy through consultation centers for women, encouragement of contraceptive research and education of the public.  (+info)

Commentary: the public health consequences of restricted induced abortion--lessons from Romania. (8/48)

The question of whether abortion should be legal is currently being decided in many countries. Although much of the discussion has focused on ethical issues, the public health consequences should not be overlooked and should be addressed realistically and responsibly. Nowhere are the public health manifestations of restricted abortion more apparent than in Romania. The pronatalist policies of the Ceaucescu regime resulted in the highest maternal mortality rate in Europe (approximately 150 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births) and in thousands of unwanted children in institutions.  (+info)

Downloadable! Although it is commonly believed that trade liberalization results in higher GDP, little is known about its effects on poverty and inequality. This paper uses the sharp trade liberalization in India in 1991, spurred to a large extent by external factors, to measure the causal impact of trade liberalization on poverty and inequality in districts in India. Variation in pre-liberalization industrial composition across districts in India and the variation in the degree of liberalization across industries allow for a difference-in-difference approach, establishing whether certain areas benefited more from, or bore a disproportionate share of the burden of liberalization. In rural districts where industries more exposed to liberalization were concentrated, poverty incidence and depth decreased by less as a result of trade liberalization, a setback of about 15 percent of Indias progress in poverty reduction over the 1990s. The results are robust to pre-reform trends, convergence and time-varying

During that year, 2603 abortions were reported, along with 6678 live births. 5% of hospitalizations were due to abortion during that year, making it the 4th highest cause of hospitalization. Due to legal restrictions against abortion, as well as its significant financial cost, illegal abortions are common in Belize, especially for low-income women. In 1998, an estimated one in seven maternal deaths in Belize were due to unsafe, illegal abortions. Abortion in Belize is governed by sections 108-110 of the Criminal Code (enacted December 1980). Abortion is considered a criminal offense except when performed by a registered medical practitioner under certain conditions. The sentence for performing an illegal abortion in Belize is life imprisonment. Abortion is permitted under the following circumstances: To protect the ...
Downloadable! We examine the effect of regionalism on unilateral trade liberalization using industry-level data on applied MFN tariffs and bilateral preferences for ten Latin American countries from 1990 to 2001. We find that preferential tariff reduction in a given sector leads to a reduction in the external (MFN) tariff in that sector. External liberalization is greater if preferences are granted to important suppliers. However, these complementarity effects of preferential liberalization on external liberalization do not arise in customs unions. Overall, our results suggest that concerns about a negative effect of preferential liberalization on external trade liberalization are unfounded.

An estimated 30% of U.S. women will have an abortion by age 45,1 and abortion incidence is one indicator of unintended pregnancy. In 2008, 51% of pregnancies were unintended, and 40% of these ended in abortion.2 While one of the goals established in 2000 in Healthy People 2010 was to reduce the incidence of unintended pregnancy,3 progress has been elusive.
Trade liberalization has been promoted by the World Bank and IMF based on the argument that openness to trade will contribute to economic growth and development. More specifically, trade liberalization was expected to reduce poverty and improve food availability for local consumption, and thereby contributing to the reduction of malnutrition and to the overall efforts of food security of a nation. Despite the lack of consensus, most developing countries took the challenge to liberalize their economies. Quarter of a century later, to our knowledge, there is little or no consensus about the empirical relationship between trade liberalization events and food availability/security. The purpose of this paper is to examine empirically the effect of trade liberalization on food availability in selected developing countries. An econometric analysis of panel data seems to suggest that trade liberalization exerted a negative short run effect on food availability in the sample countries. The overall (or net)
We were promised a full investigation, but now we learn that no one from the Department of State Health Services bothered to visit Karpens two abortion clinics. In light of the gravity of the accusations that Karpen was murdering live newborns, it is inexcusable that no inspections were done with that information in mind, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. This really represents a failure of the system to properly oversee abortion facilities and investigate serious issues that arise. It is all too reminiscent of the failure of Pennsylvania authorities to look into complaints against Kermit Gosnells Philadelphia House of Horrors.. In response to Operation Rescues report, the Harris County District Attorneys office later conducted a grand jury investigation into the witnesses allegations, but disbanded in December, 2013, without indicting Karpen on any charge. However, Operation Rescue maintains that the grand jury was likely steered away from issuing an indictment for ...
Transcript:. Interviewer: If abortion is morally wrong, arent you responsible for discouraging it?. Romney: One of the great things about our nation is that we are each entitled to have strong personal beliefs, and we encourage other people to do the same. But as a nation, we recognize the right of all people to believe as they want and not to impose our beliefs on other people. I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a U.S. Senate candidate. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years, we should sustain and support it. And I sustain and support that law and the right of a woman to make that choice. And my personal beliefs, like the personal beliefs of other people, should not be brought into a political campaign.. Kennedy: On the question of the choice issue, I have supported Roe v. Wade, I am pro-choice. My opponent is multiple-choice.. Romney: On the idea of ...
We have had good response on our announcement that we want American Girl doll company to sever their unholy alliance with Girls Inc., an organization that supports abortion, contraception and lesbianism as part of its policy of educating young girls.. We have done six interviews on this alliance and have some more being lined up for next week. Ann Scheidler is handling these media contacts, having been a storng advocate of American Girl dolls in the past.. That chain of stores, owned by Mattel since 1998, and innocent enough in itself, has decided to give 70% of its earnings for an I Can bracelet, and a direct gift of $50,000 to Girls Inc., the pro-abortion organization.. Drop a line and ask American Girl to cut the cord with Girls Inc. Please do it and save us from being forced to organize a national boycott of American Girl Dolls and pickets of their doll stores in Chicago and New York. As they say, the way to be sure evil will triumph is for good people to do nothing. Its up to you, good ...

I was lucky, I just happened to be passing by right when this guys pressure dropped, before the nurses even had time to page me.. Heres some history. He was in his 60-70s, a vascular patient with diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, the usual set of comorbidities you see in people after decades of cigarette smoking and high blood sugars. He was in the hospital because he had received a vein graft in his leg a month before but he had unfortunately gotten a surgical site infection. The graft, which was meant to bypass a blocked artery in his leg so he wouldnt lose his foot or need a below-knee amputation, was still open and working. He had been admitted in septic shock, had acute kidney injury from the shock, and required resuscitation and placement of a large catheter in his subclavian vein so we could perform dialysis. This, sadly, is not particularly uncommon with this patient population. Diabetics and smokers are terrible at healing wounds, and are very prone to infection. His had run ...

Tuesday 31 May 2016. Dr Rebecca Gomperts has devoted the entirety of her work and life to helping women safely terminate pregnancies in countries where it is illegal Women on Waves / Vessel Documentary. Every year, 47,000 women worldwide die from an unsafe abortion. To put this into context, every nine minutes a woman dies from a termination which is not safe.. While abortion might be one of the safest medical procedures in the world in countries where it is legal, it is harrowingly risky in nations where it is illegal. Of the estimated 20 million women who undergo illegal abortions each year, millions go on to suffer long-lasting and sometimes permanent health consequences from their termination. Infertility and chronic pain are just two of the possible symptoms.. For this very reason, Dr Rebecca Gomperts has devoted the entirety of her work and life to helping women safely terminate pregnancies in countries where it is illegal. From flying drones filled with abortions pills to sailing the ...
Why? Because that was the gut-wrenching question asked of him by a woman who grabbed him by the collar and pulled her to his face as she bled to death after a botched back-alley abortion. If theres anything I can do to aid ladies and their problems, then Ill do it, said this physician, who has since turned out to be a womens advocate because womens rights are shortchanged. After he watched a second woman die as a result of an illegal abortion, he decided to dedicate his career to providing the best medical care he can offer to women, especially those least likely to receive it ...
By Linda, Age 57, Petaluma, CA. I grew up without access to legal, safe abortions. Roe v. Wade passed during my 20th year. I recall impulsively having sex with a boy when I was 16, an age during which impulsiveness outperforms all higher judgment, and then afterwords, worrying about becoming pregnant due to my childish mistake, knowing that I would do whatever I had to do to obtain an illegal abortion, no matter the consequences. Fortunately, I did not have to go down that road, but only due to pure luck.. I had a conversation with an anti-choice acquaintance several years back, in which she recounted to me how her sister had had an abortion, only to later profoundly regret that decision, and so now, her sister advocates against choice. Im not sure which scenario is more lacking in thoughtfulness and intelligence: having sex with no precautions or falsely thinking that, had abortions been illegal, this person would not have obtained one. At least in my case, my decisions were made when I was ...
According to a multitude of abortion-rights web sites, none of which provide any substantiating documentation, Pauline Roberson Shirley was a 29-year-old married mother of six. She and the children, according to these claims, were living with her mother in Arizona while her husband was looking for work in California. These sites gives no details of the illegal abortion that Pauline reportedly underwent, but say that she was hospitalized for hemorrhage afterward and in need of transfusions. They then indicate that Paulines mother was looking for donors for the needed blood when Pauline bled to death on August 22, 1940. ...

Like many women in my generation, I had an unintended pregnancy when I was a teenager. It was 1968 and and it was prior to the legalization of Roe v. Wade. So I faced the back alleys of America at that time and decided not to have an illegal abortion because I couldnt afford it and because I was afraid that I would die. And so I carried a pregnancy to term against my will and was forced to adopt the child out and it was an incredibly painful experience for me. So that every time I see a patient today, every time I look into the eyes of a woman who is seeking birth control or who has an unintended pregnancy, I know that the work that we do here is really helping to save lives. ...
We model home country familiarity with business opportunities in a foreign country as a parameter in a matching process between domestic and foreign firms. We show that as familiarity increases the effect of relative national labor supplies on relative national wages declines, the elasticity of domestic labor demand increases, and the extent of pass-through of trade tax changes to home wages increases. Since the volume of trade is increasing in familiarity, trade liberalization has a greater impact on wages when the initial volume of trade is greater, all else equal. As familiarity becomes complete, the results of the 2 x 2 Heckscher-Ohlin-Samuelson model are obtained: relative national wages are fixed by trade taxes independent of relative national labor supplies, domestic labor demand is infinitely elastic, and pass-through of tax changes to wages is complete in the sense that it is determined entirely by production technology and no arbitrage opportunities remain. ...

As pressure mounts on Donald Trump, he makes one mistake after another. recently headlined that Trump had endured/caused 24 hours of mayhem.. Within that time period, he proposed punishing women for having illegal abortions, defended his campaign manager for so abusing a reporter that he was arrested for assault, reneged on his pledge to back the ultimate GOP nominee, suggested that Japan and South Korea should get the bomb, called NATO obsolete, and condemned the Geneva Convention. Politico reports that this rash of incendiary statements left GOP leaders stupefied.. Is the pressure getting to Donald? Recently, he did an interview with conservative talk show host Charlie Sykes and admitted that he had not known, going in to the session, that Sykes was a sharp critic. But the real gaffe - that raises questions about his preparedness - was in citing Judge Diane S. Sykes, a judge on Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit as the kind of person he might consider for the Supreme ...

A number of countries have delayed the opening of their capital markets to international investment because of reservations about the impact of foreign speculators on both expected returns and market volatility. We propose a cross-sectional time-series model that attempts to assess the impact of market liberalizations, in the form of the offering of depositary receipts country funds and other financial instruments, in an extranational market and market volatility in emerging equity markets. We also examine the impact of capital market liberalizations on the correlation of emerging equity market returns and the world market return. Our empirical approach is designed to control for other economic events which might confound the impact of foreign speculators on local equity markets. Whatever the empirical specification the cost of capital always decreases after a capital market liberalization but the effect is economically and statistically weak. The effects on volatility and correlation ...

The investigation lasted 4 months. In November the prosecutors office stated that accusations against Women on Waves had been dismissed. The lawsuit was discontinued due to the lack of evidence of breaking the law. The prosecutor admitted that no illegal abortions have been performed on Langenort.. The Women on Waves campaign succeeded in bringing attention to the Polish society the need for legal abortion. Due to our presence, abortion was discussed openly and in depth in the media, on the streets, in homes, bars and parliament. For more then 2 weeks abortion was the main ...

The harm reduction strategy posits that even in restrictive legal environments, abortion as a procedure has a before and an after. During these time periods intervention by healthcare providers, in the form of the provision of information, is both appropriate and legal. The model recommends that women considering an abortion have at least one consultation before and another after the termination, and is based on the notion that health professionals not only can, but have the professional and ethical duty to act in order to reduce (and in some cases eliminate) the risks and harm associated with unsafe abortion by offering women information and counselling on their options ...
In countries where safe abortion is not accessible, women seek unsafe methods. Each year, an estimated 25 million unsafe abortions occur worldwide. As a result, every 10 minutes somewhere in the world a woman dies unnecessarily due to complications of unsafe abortion. Restrictive abortion laws violate womens human rights and put womens health and lives at risk. There are two main methods of abortion; surgical abortion entails using of surgical procedures for terminating pregnancy, including vacuum aspiration and dilatation and evacuation (D&E), and medical abortion entails the administration of pharmacological drugs to terminate pregnancy. Both methods are proven to be safe and effective. Read and share facts about abortions and help us debunk harmful abortion myths.. ...
Abortion is only permitted to save a womans life or in the case of rape or incest. A person who intentionally causes a woman to miscarry is not guilty of an offence where (a) the miscarriage is necessary to save the mothers life; (b) the pregnancy is the result of rape which has occurred not more than 90 days before the pregnant woman has desired to have the abortion; or (c) it is proved that the quick unborn child has died in the mothers womb. If the pregnancy is of less than 90 days duration, the person who performs the illegal abortion is subject to up to three years imprisonment and/or payment of a fine. If the pregnancy is of more than 90 days duration, the penalty is increased to up to five years imprisonment and payment of a fine. In both cases, the person may be subject to the payment of compensation. ...
Chaise:. The 1967 Act set the upper limit at 28 weeks, not 24 weeks and the key influence on the Parliamentary debate at the time was the work of a medical advisory committee, chaired by the-then RCOG President Sir John Peel, which was given a brief to reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with illegal abortion.. Without going back to the Hansard record of the 1967 debates, I cant be sure what consideration, if any, was given to the question of viability. So far as Im aware the original 28 week limit was something that the Abortion Act inherited from the Infant Life (Preservation) Act 1929.. The current 24 weeks limit was set in 1990 through an amendment to the Abortion Act that was included in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act and, from memory, that was intended to reflect improvements in survival rates amongst extremely pre-term neonates. Even then, there were some instances in which neonates survived being born at 22-23 weeks gestation.. Epicure 1995, the study that ...
Congress and States should gather information about and correct abusive, unsanitary, and illegal abortion practices and the interstate referral of women and girls to facilities engaged in dangerous or illegal second- and third-trimester procedures, the resolution states.. The lack of oversight at abortion facilities puts womens lives at risk and leads to the kind of unconscionable practices we have seen recently, Lee said in a statement on the resolution. The Senate should formally recognize that this is a problem in our country and we have a responsibility to investigate the causes, review the effects of certain public policies, and determine what we can do to prevent any woman from being subjected to these reprehensible practices again.. Congress has the responsibility to investigate and conduct hearings on abortions performed near, at, or after viability in the United States, public policies regarding such, and evaluate the extent to which such abortions involve violations of the ...
Well, the sad, mean, and foolish attitudes of Ms. Moore continue in force. Heres part of her remarks the other day as she celebrated 40 years of legal abortion. This is the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the ability for women to have a safe and legal abortion. But it really is 40 years of affirming motherhood. And to say, as weve said in our oath of office that we take, it should be done willfully without purpose of evasion and that we go into it mindful of the responsibility that is ahead of us. Parenting is difficult on your best day. And it doesnt serve children, and it certainly doesnt serve women to be forced into parenthood. And I think this is what the public has come to understand. That safe, legal abortions are very important for the health of children, women, the institution of motherhood, family, and ultimately to our society ...

The argument over abortion has been a subject for dispute for a long time. The arguments span over many issues. All these have been, and are currently being debated. But the issue that is of most concern is the question: is abortion moral? That is the question I will try to answer. Even though the Supreme Court found that a State s Criminal Abortion law violates a person s fourteenth amendment right, a woman still has to decide if her decision is right and whether it will affect others than herself. Thus, is it right to have an abortion? A young woman gets pregnant with her boyfriend, both are too young and immature to raise a child, so she decides to get an abortion. This decision is made out of haste due to her youth and immaturity. She decides that the solution to the problem is an abortion. It s quick, and not many will know. Like many girls of her age, this is viewed as the solution to premature sex pregnancies. But I wonder: if she were ten years older, would her decision be different. Has ...
The million of illegal abortions every year is an indication that Brazils current ban on abortion puts millions of women in grave danger, and government efforts to limit unwanted abortions amount to nothing at all. President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who is personally pro-life, is publicly calling for the topic to be discussed as a public-health issue rather than a moral one. Lula, perfectly aware of the excommunication controversy surrounding the nine-year-old, has said, In this case, the medical profession was more right than the Church, and, As a Christian and a Catholic I deeply regret that a bishop of the Catholic Church has such a conservative attitude. But despite President Lulas rather strong words against the Church, during the first seven years of his administration, he has done little to encourage a public discussion about the issue of legalizing abortion. However, in December of last year, Lula sent a proposal to Congress requesting bills on several human rights initiatives, ...
Mine was a zine written by Meredith Stern, also known as Merrydeath, who had previously written Crude Noise. The subtitle of the first issue was An Anthology of Womens Choices. It was a compilation of emotionally stunning womens stories, first hand experiences of abortions and the history of the topic. The kind of abortions, and contexts in which they happened, differ from story to story. There are descriptions of self administered herbal abortions performed with confidence, fear, scepticism and faith. There are stories of women who had to secretly organise their own medical abortions and deal with the emotional and physical consequences alone as well as stories of women who receive support. The circumstances written about include clinical abortion, childbirth, forced sterilization, the abortion inducing drug RU486, herbal abortion, illegal abortion, contraceptives and more. Through this in depth study, Meredith attempts to combat the stigma surrounding the topic. The zine passionately and ...
See 410 U.S. 959, 93 S.Ct. 1409.. Syllabus. A pregnant single woman (Roe) brought a class action challenging the constitutionality of the Texas criminal abortion laws, which proscribe procuring or attempting an abortion except on medical advice for the purpose of saving the mothers life. A licensed physician (Hallford), who had two state abortion prosecutions pending against him, was permitted to intervene. A childless married couple (the Does), the wife not being pregnant, separately attacked the laws, basing alleged injury on the future possibilities of contraceptive failure, pregnancy, unpreparedness for parenthood, and impairment of the wifes health. A three-judge District Court, which consolidated the actions, held that Roe and Hallford, and members of their classes, had standing to sue and presented justiciable controversies. Ruling that declaratory, though not injunctive, relief was warranted, the court declared the abortion statutes void as vague and overbroadly infringing those ...
Well, Ms. not-Reverend Ragsdale, will you also be responsible when and if that young girl you procured an abortion for without her parents knowledge or permission develops complications from that abortion - which STILL happens more often than acknowledged? Will you pay her hospital bills when her uterus is punctured and she nearly bleeds to death? How about when she develops a serious infection afterward and must have treatment? Should her parents NOW have to step forward and shoulder the cost of something they did not approve? Will you be there when the reality of what she has done finally hits her and she grows to hate herself so much she seeks to drown the feeling in drugs, alcohol, more sex, an atonement baby, or suicide? Or how about ten years down the line when she finally wants a baby and she finds out her illegal abortion has made her sterile? Will you still be there for her or will you have long forgotten about her because what you REALLY care about more than THAT young girls ...

The case of a woman, who I will call Swarna, illustrates some of the social problems associated with unsafe abortion. Swarna was admitted to the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) of a provincial hospital where I worked as a medical officer. Swarna, a resident of the Uva province, had three children, was poor and could neither read nor write. She had been transferred from a base hospital where she was suspected to have had a reaction to blood transfusion. While family planning services were provided free of charge through the public sector to Swarna, her social situation made her vulnerable to an unintended pregnancy. Criminalized abortion and the fear of law enforcement prevented Swarna from accessing post-abortion care until she was very ill and when she did she strongly denied having had any such intervention. The consultant obstetrician who had seen a similar clinical picture in other women who were admitted after unsafe abortion, decided Swarna should undergo a lifesaving surgical ...
An unsafe abortion is the termination of an unwanted pregnancy by persons lacking the necessary skills, or in an environment lacking minimal medical standards, or both. For example, an unsafe abortion may refer to an extremely dangerous life-threatening procedure that is self-induced in unhygienic conditions, or it may refer to a much safer abortion performed by a medical practitioner who …. ...
as Thomas Lucente Jr. once pointed out, saying one cant criticize a womans choice to murder her children is the same as saying one cant criticize the president without being the president.[4] Both life of the mother and rape are rare circumstances accounting for less than 1% of all abortions, with little bearing on the broader abortion on demand issue, particularly since all legislation the Pro-Life movement has been putting out recently has included exceptions for them, and many states had laws allowing abortion for such cases before Roe v. Wade - abortion was legalized for other reasons. (See Arguments On Abortion) Ultimately, this debate is about when a fetus becomes a human being worthy of all applicable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness under the Declaration of Independence, for once it is we should not take its life lightly. And when it comes to that, 18,150 abortions occur after the 21st week of pregnancy[5] - the earliest point children can be born prematurely ...
Discussion. Health inequalities may be defined as differences in health conditions or in the distribution of their determinants among different population groups. Whenever they give rise to inequity, they refer to health inequities.16 The main determinants of such inequities are related to how social life is structured. Health inequities among groups and individuals must be considered avoidable, unfair and unnecessary.16. People who are vulnerable and at social risk, belonging to families with per capita income of up to half a minimum wage, in Brazil, are considered affected by poverty and social exclusion by the Ministry of Social Development of the Government.
