Worldwide 42 million abortions are estimated to take place annually with 22 million of these occurring safely and 20 million unsafely. While maternal mortality seldom results from safe abortions, unsafe abortions result in 70,000 deaths and 5 million disabilities per year. One of the main determinants of the availability of safe abortions is the legality of the procedure. Forty percent of the world's women are able to access therapeutic and elective abortions within gestational limits. The frequency of abortions is, however, similar whether or not access is restricted.
It is noticed that by sheer hypocrisy or excessive religiosity thousands of women die because the rulers do not ensure that access to safe abortion. Access to abortion and the treatment and care after the procedure must be fully paid by the government.
The state must be secular. Should not suffer the influence of beliefs or religion. Abortion is a public health issue and should be treated as such!
Abortion is not religious issue, much less a political debate. It is a woman's right and can not be denied to her!
Nobody will take away the rights that women have taken years to achieve!
