Every third pregnancy ends with an abortion!


Researchers from the Guttmacher Institute in the US in the medical magazine "The Lancet" published statistics on the number of abortions. They show that 30% of European pregnancies end in abortion. Most abortions are performed in Eastern Europe.

The researchers note that the rate of treatments performed in 1995-2003 from 35% fell to 29%. In turn, in 2008 this value was 28% and in the following years stabilized at this level. Dry numbers are not everything, of course. Apart from the obvious, terrifying scale of the phenomenon, it is worth noting that the number of treatments performed in terrible conditions is increasing. There is no shortage of dangerous (even life-threatening women) procedures that are performed in rapidly developing countries, where access to contraception is difficult.

In addition to the increase in the number of abortions, scientists have noted an increase in the number of miscarriages (today 49%)
