Abortion Safety / Is abortion safe?
Abortion is the most common outpatient surgical procedure in the country
and it is extremely safe. According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute,
a leading public health research organization, abortion is 11 times safer than carrying a pregnancy to term.
Less than 1% of all abortion patients experience a complication.
Observing all follow-up instructions and disclosing your full medical history can greatly reduce
your risk of complications.
