Abortion is the termination of pregnancy at a certain period. What are the reasons behind abortion that push women to take this serious step? If a potential mother for whatever reason, desires, personal preferences, material circumstances, social reasons, has made her decision to terminate the pregnancy, it is advisable to immediately refer to the gynecologist after the detection of pregnancy. Of course, good reasons are necessary for abortion and it should be done in a specialized clinic with the correct observance of sanitary norms, under the guidance of an experienced specialist, which will significantly reduce the probability of various complications.
According to the legislation of many countries, every woman can terminate a pregnancy, starting from the 2nd week of the term and up to the 12th week. Undoubtedly, the sooner a woman decides to make an abortion, the better. During the period of the 4th and 7th weeks of pregnancy, it is preferable to have a medical abortion.
At a later date it is possible to have a vacuum abortion on the woman’s request or for medical reasons. The main reasons of medical abortions at such early stages are various infectious diseases of the mother, which can affect the development of the child (rubella, for example).
Starting with the 12th and 22nd weeks of pregnancy, abortions are permitted only for medical reasons, which include: severe heart disease; violation of the structure and circulation of the blood, liver; the active form of tuberculosis; nephrolithiasis, pyelonephritis; 12 duodenal ulcer; malignant or benign tumors; various diseases of the nervous system; diseases of the sense organs; genetically conditioned metabolic diseases; syphilis in the infectious form. The reasons may also include the presence of a disability, blindness, deafness of the mother that can stop her from bringing up the child.
There are also financial reasons for abortions. It happens that even happy couples still decide to do an abortion, explaining it with the unstable financial situation. Often women, who have already given birth to one child, do abortions if they become pregnant again, since they are not able to support two children.
Social reasons of abortions are the wrong age for childbearing, poor financial situation, the intention of the women to make a career or get an education, the lack of any kind of a relationship with the biological father of the unborn child, the presence and number of other children, emotional instability, relationships with parents, religious convictions, etc.
Today, one of the main reasons behind an abortion is an elementary ignorance of contraception rules.
