Abortion safer than giving birth: study

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Getting a legal abortion is much safer than giving birth, suggests a new U.S. study published Monday.

Researchers found that women were about 14 times more likely to die during or after giving birth to a live baby than to die from complications of an abortion.

Experts say the findings, though not unexpected, contradict some state laws that suggest abortions are high-risk procedures.

The message is that getting an abortion and giving birth are both safe, said Dr. Anne Davis, who studies obstetrics and gynecology at the Columbia University Medical Center in New York, and wasn't involved in the new study.

Abortion safer than giving birth

- not for the baby it's not.
Interesting how they skew these numbers to make it appear safer but over the long term having an abortion significantly increases your chances of developing certain cancers like breast cancer. This has to do with the sudden drop in hormones. Also, the birth control pill will increase your risk for cancers. But you will never see those studies published on MSM.
