There has been a lot of cases of abortion to the Filipino women, most of these are of economic reasons. Women who have abortions are similar to Filipino women overall: They are typically Catholic, married, are mothers and have at least a high school education. The most common reason women give for having an abortion is their inability to afford raising a child. Other commonly cited causes are that they felt they already had enough children or that their pregnancy came too soon after their last birth. These cases of abortion are the results of not using contraceptives thus leading to unplanned birth. Nearly all abortions are clandestine and carry associated risks, though the skill and training of providers vary. Although some women are able to obtain medically recommended procedures, many resort to untrained providers who use dangerous methods, putting the health of the woman at serious risk.

These cases may be overcome by the help of the people educate their fellow women to help them understand the risks of abortion. Help the public learn about modern contraceptives and the risks of unintended pregnancy and unsafe abortion. Together we can change the fates of these unborn babies which were taken the rights to face the world.
