Sample text

7%. The complications of illegal abortion are a burden not only to individual women but also to medical institutions and society as a whole. Treating abortion complications consumes substantial quantities of scarce resourcesblood supplies, the time of trained medical personnel, and hospital beds, with 60% of the acute gynaecological beds being occupied by abortion patients (Aggarwal & Mati 1982). Many developing countries are unable to pay these costs and at the same time meet the basic needs of maternal and child health.

We are concerned with responsibility within morality, that is with the notion that individuals are doing something for which they are willing to take responsibility and are considering the consequences of their actions on themselves and on others. Women who are seeking abortions are often the women who are most responsible in the circumstances of sexual morality. They are trying to work out consequences and predict what they should do. Putting a label of ‘immoral’ on this particular group as opposed to the rest of society seems to me quite wrong.

Single-hospital studies of admissions for complications of abortion and nationwide studies of admissions for complications of abortion have shown an association between legalization of abortion and a fall in numbers hospitalized for abortion complications. Nationwide surveillance of deaths from abortions shows that in the last decade deaths from illegal abortion have been almost eliminated in the USA (Cates 1982). In 1979 not a single woman died from illegal abortion in the entire country (Centers for Disease Control 1983).
