Dangers of termination of pregnancy according to OB/GYNS

The following is from a paper by three British OB/GYN’s, which shares their views about the dangers of termination of pregnancy:

“If the termination of pregnancy were as safe as so many advocates of liberal abortion maintain, a patient suffering as a result of the operation could claim that professional negligence was responsible for her subsequent distress or disaster. Such claims would be grossly unfair. There would be great sympathy for a 16-year-old girl whose uterus was torn beyond repair; for the married woman with gut resection and peritonitis; for the mother in monthly distress following hysterotomy because of implantation endometritis in her abdominal wall, vagina or bladder; for the anxious infertile wife who knows the tubal damage now denies her the baby she desires is the delayed price she is paying for her teenage abortion. But the fact remains that none of these situations may be the result of negligence. They are complications which, though well-known to, and well documented by, those with wide experience of an operation which is neither simple nor safe, are seldom mentioned by those who claim that abortion is safe and merely an extension of contraceptive techniques.”

Quoted by Jeanne Head, RN in Alex Barno, M.D. Proposed Constitutional Amendments on Abortion “Hearings before the Subcommittee on Civil and Constitutional Rights of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, 94th Congress” (Washington DC, US Government Printing Office, 1976) 934

These are only some of the dangers of termination of pregnancy.
