Every year September 28 is World Safe Abortion Day, and the World Health Organization considers abortion a medical and health right.

The reasons why women have abortions are varied. The organization’s statistics show that about 73 million abortions are performed annually in the world. Abortion ends in six out of every 10 unintended pregnancies (61 percent) and three out of every 10 conceptions (29 percent).

Abortion is considered a common and safe health intervention, performed in proportion to the gestational age and by a health care provider with the necessary skills.

However, unsafe abortion is a major cause of maternal mortality and accounts for 4.7 to 13.2 percent of maternal deaths annually.
