Legalization, safer and more preventive than restriction
Clandestine and Unsafe Abortion Consequences in Developing Countries versus Legal and Safe Abortion Benefits in Developed Countries
Keywords:Abortion restriction consequences, abortion legalization benefits
In this paper, the goal aimed was to bring out consequences that go along with illegal and unsafe abortion and benefits attached to legal and safe abortion in order to urge countries with restrictive abortion laws to reform their legislations so as to save women’s lives from higher morbidity and mortality resulting from unsafe abortion and to protect their health and human rights. In fact, a large number of scholars have established the relationships between developing countries and restrictive abortion laws, restrictive abortion grounds and illegal abortion, illegal abortion and unsafe abortion, unsafe abortion and higher maternal morbidity and mortality. From that, it has been stressed that most of developing countries have restrictive abortion legislation, which fosters a large amount of illicit and unsafe abortions, responsible of such consequences as higher maternal morbidity and mortality. Since restrictive laws, instead of decreasing illegal abortion and its consequences, only increase them and make women run a great risk, it has been demonstrated that legalizing and granting access to safe abortion is the most effective prevention of criminal and unsafe abortions.
