Top 4 Reasons Women Give for Having an Abortion

Top reasons women gave for having abortions (women could pick more than one) according to the most recent info:

74% said that the baby would change their life too much

73% said that babies were too expensive

48% didn’t want to raise the child alone

32% did not want another child

Less than 1% for rape or incest

Finer LP et al., “Reasons US Women Have Abortions: Quantitative and Qualitative Perspectives” Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, 2005 37 (3): 10 – 118

I will leave it to the reader to decide whether these are sufficient reasons or not.

Below: 1st trimester (9-10 week) preborn baby (see what this baby would look like after the most common type of abortion, a suction curettage)
