THE OPTIONS FOR AN UNINTENDED PREGNANCY ARE:
(b) Continue the pregnancy and give the baby up either temporarily (foster care), or permanently (adoption)
WHICH OPTION IS SAFER? Please compare the following mortality rates in the USA:
0.1 deaths in 100,000 abortions at 8 week LMP
0.4 deaths in 100,000 abortions at 12 weeks LMP
1.7 deaths in 100,000 abortions at 15 weeks LMP
3.3 deaths in 100,000 abortions at 20 weeks LMP
17.0 deaths in 100,000 obstetrical deliveries
38.0 deaths in 100,000 ectopic pregnancies
300.0 death in 100,000 worldwide clandestine abortions
Compared to other medical procedures performed in the United States, abortion ranks as one of the safest.
Fewer than 0.5% of women obtaining abortions experience a complication.
The risk of death associated with abortion is twenty eight times lower than the risk of death that is associated with childbirth. Most fatal complications typically strike during the last trimester of pregnancy, which by definition is precluded by abortion. The reduced number of birth among high risk women (such as the very young, the very old, and women in poor health) has substantially reduced their rates of maternal mortality, neonatal mortality, low birth weight and preterm births.
