  • Slide 1 - An Overview of Abortion in the United States Guttmacher Institute © January 2014
  • Slide 2 - Objectives Provide an overview of unintended pregnancy and abortion in the United States. Review the incidence of pregnancy and abortion. Discuss provision of and access to abortion services. Review the safety of abortion. Identify who has abortions, why and when in pregnancy. Provide a comparative international perspective on abortion.
  • Slide 3 - Incidence of Unintended Pregnancy and Abortion
  • Slide 4 - Pregnancies in the United States (Approximately 6.6 Million in 2008) Unintended Intended % of pregnancies

  • Slide 6 - Incidence of Abortion In 2011, some 1.06 million pregnancies were terminated by abortion in the United States. The abortion rate in 2011 was 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44. Put differently, 1.7% of all women aged 15–44 had an abortion in 2011.

The provision of medication abortion, particularly by providers who do not offer surgical abortion, is likely responsible for the stabilization in the number of abortion providers that has occurred since 2000.

An estimated 36% of eligible abortions (those performed up to nine weeks) were early medication abortions. Fifty-nine percent of all known providers offer this service, compared with 33% in early 2001.* *Mifepristone was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in early medication abortion in September 2000.

  • Slide 43 - International Perspective on Abortion
  • Slide 44 - The Global Decline in the Abortion Rate Has Stalled Abortions per 1,000 women aged 15––44
  • Slide 45 - Highly Restrictive Abortion Laws Are Not Associated with Lower Abortion Rates The abortion rate is 29 per 1,000 women of childbearing age in Africa and 32 in Latin America, regions where abortion is illegal under most circumstances. The rate is 12 per 1,000 in Western Europe, where abortion is generally permitted on broad grounds.
  • Slide 46 - An Increasing Proportion of Abortions Are Unsafe % of abortions that are unsafe

  • Slide 49 - Consequences of Unsafe Abortion Complications from unsafe abortion procedures account for 13% of all maternal deaths, or 47,000 per year. 8.5 million women experience complications that require medical attention each year; 3 million do not receive care. Virtually all of these deaths and injuries occur in the developing world.
  • Slide 50 - Law Reforms in Developing Countries Have Been Followed by Declines in Morbidity and Mortality South Africa (1997): annual number of abortion-related deaths decreased by 91% after the law was liberalized. Nepal (2002): abortion-related complications as a proportion of all of maternal illnesses (in facilities in eight districts) decreased by 48%. Ethiopia (2005): abortion complications per 100,000 live births (one large hospital) decreased by about 70%.
  • Slide 51 - Summary Points
  • Slide 52 - Incidence of Pregnancy and Abortion in the United States Unintended pregnancy and abortion are common among all groups of women. Certain groups of women are at greater risk of unintended pregnancy than are others. Half of all pregnancies are unintended. Four in 10 unintended pregnancies end in abortion.
  • Slide 53 - Provision of and Access to Abortion Services Most abortions occur in abortion clinics. Many women have to travel significant distances to find a provider, which can pose problems for those with limited resources, or work or family responsibilities.
  • Slide 54 - Safety of Abortion Abortion is one of the safest common surgical procedures for women in the United States. Abortion is safe over the long term and carries little or no risk of fertility-related problems, cancer or psychological illnesses. Laws criminalizing abortion make abortions unsafe, but do not eliminate them.
  • Slide 55 - Who Has Abortions, Why and When in Pregnancy Disadvantaged women bear a disproportionate burden of unintended pregnancies and abortions. The most frequent reasons women give are that having a child or another child would limit their ability to meet current responsibilities and that they cannot afford a child at this point in their lives. Almost 90% of abortions occur in the first trimester.
  • Slide 56 - Obstacles to Obtaining Abortion Services Although most women obtain abortions early in pregnancy, some women face substantial obstacles to access. Nearly four in 10 women of reproductive age receive coverage under Medicaid, yet 32 states allow Medicaid funding for abortion only in cases of rape, incest or life endangerment. Lacking insurance coverage, poor women often require time to find the money to pay for an abortion, if they are able to at all. More than 200 state abortion restrictions were enacted between 2011 and 2013, making it more difficult for women to obtain timely services.
  • Slide 57 - International Perspective on Abortion A very small proportion of abortions worldwide take place in the United States. Most unsafe abortions occur in countries where abortion is illegal.
  • Slide 58 - About Guttmacher The Guttmacher Institute is a nonprofit organization that advances sexual and reproductive health worldwide through research, policy analysis and public education.
