Lauer) There are two different types of abortion, miscarriage and induced abortion. Women decided to have abortions for many different reasons and use it as a birth control plan.

Abortion is a very sensitive issue to discuss, because of its nature. Many people have said that abortion is a very bad thing to do and it should not even be choice whether or not to abort a living fetus.

Furthermore, experts estimate that more than two hundred thousand women die each year in developing nations as a result of illegal abortions (“Abortion”). If legal abortion is not accessible, it will not make abortions altogether stop.
