Is an abortion dangerous for me?

A safe abortion is less likely to cause harm than having a baby.

Abortion is very safe when it is done:
Abortion is unsafe when it is done: Around the world, 46 million abortions are done every year. Women survive most of them, even if they are not legal. But unsafe abortions can cause death, or complications like infection, lasting pain, and infertility. Out of 100,000 women getting a safe abortion, only 1 will die. But out of 100,000 women having unsafe abortions, between 100 and 1000 will die.
