A crash course in changing the world.
Millions of unsafe abortions are performed each year around the world. Abortions are legally allowed in 98% of the countries of the world for women who are at risk for death or serious illness due to her pregnancy. There are many social, political and religious factors that play into this and cause many women to seek an unsafe abortion in fear of ridicule or excommunication from their society. Women who cannot have a safe abortion, should access healthy and safe care from a medical provider in order to help with the unintended pregnancy. the cost of treating the women after having an unsafe abortion is more than the cost of a safe abortion itself. Women around the world are urged to seek medical treatment if need be to save their own lives, especially if they have been given an unsafe abortion.
