Our expert says:
Charmaine, I assume that you’re talking about elective abortions done because of unwanted babies. The picture changes a whole lot when you’re talking about spontaneous abortions and abortions due to medical illness.
The cancers statements are nonsense. There might be a little truth in the placenta previa thing if the abortion is done by curettage and the next pregnancy is soon after the abortion. I think that the percentage of women suffering serious complications after an elective abortion is probably lower than you stated.
That said, abortion is not without its complications – mentally as well as physically. I definitely don’t condone it, but it is up to the individual to make the decision and live with the consequences. Good luck.
