Most commonly, however, miscarriages occur within the first twelve weeks of pregnancy. "Miscarriage is the lay term used for pregnancy lost before 20 weeks ' gestation while the medical term for pregnancy loss before 20 weeks ' gestation is called abortion, regardless of whether the event is elective or spontaneous" (Evans, Evans, Brown, & Orshan, 2010). "While it is estimated that half of all fertilized eggs are spontaneously lost before a woman may know she is pregnant, approximately 15-20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage (Miscarriage, 2010) with 80% of miscarriages typically occurring before the 12th week of pregnancy" (Gerber-Epstein et al., 2009) (Mcgee, 2013). Miscarriage is not a reported occurrence and consequently the prevalence is difficult to assess. Statistics estimate that approximately 10% to 15% of confirmed pregnancies result in miscarriage.

Abortion is considered as a sin by many, but is also measured as the answer to certain issues such as overpopulation. According to the recent studies, Canada has fluctuated extremely from being the most pro-life country around the globe to one of the most pro-choice. As a country known for its multiculturalism, many immigrates and emigrates, bringing one of their prized possession – religion.

by taking a knee during the national anthem on television. I am considering this topic because of the recent attention is has been receiving and also because of the large amount of debate surrounding it.

Should sports and politics be mixed?
Abortion has been a long standing ethical issue debated around the world. It is an issue that evokes, on all sides, very strong feelings and judgements and very heated arguments. The most radical argumentsof the anti- abortion or “pro-life” side of the debate views abortion as the murder of unborn children, and is the equivalent of infanticide making the legal issue of abortion (since the case of Morganthaler) at a rate of 1.5 million a year in Canada into a justified murder of the innocent. There is no right or wrong side to be on, but the side that would have to be against abortion. It has been decided in 1973 by the United States Supreme Court that as long as the baby lives in the womb, he or she would be the property of the mother.
The controversial topic of abortion has caused many problems in the country more than ever because some people have taken their complaining to the next level. To be specific, the anti-abortion campaign has become so severe that the government has had to increase restrictions on abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood, one of the largest institutions that offer abortion services in the country. Religious institutions such as the Roman Catholic Church and other humanitarian groups have taken it amongst themselves to wage a war against legalization of abortion by advocating for closure and elimination of funding of abortion centers. Unfortunately, some people have taken it upon themselves to reduce abortion by targeting well-known abortion supporters

Problems like gridlock in state hospitals and in the emergency rooms and inpatient units of our general hospitals and the need for more community options in order that children and adults may receive appropriate services in the least restrictive environment, needs immediate
There are 650 health centers, and 56 independent local affiliations (Planned Parenthood at a Glance). That is a substantial amount of facilities to offer just abortions, but the truth is that only three percent of what Planned Parenthood does is for abortion services, 80 percent of their patients receive services to prevent unintended pregnancy (Planned Parent at a Glance). Planned Parenthood offers health care to 2.5 million men and women, 270,000 pap test and 579,000 unintended pregnancies each year(Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health), and if it was defunded that it would not just affect the funding of abortions but it would cause an estimate of “390,000 women to lose their access to these essential services altogether, and up to 650,000 women might face reduced access to preventive health care within a year” (Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health Planned Parenthood Provides Essential Services That Improve Women 's Health). They provide 1.2 million pregnancy test, 360,000 breast exams, and 4.2 million test for sexually-transmitted diseases (Standing with Planned Parenthood) which include more than 650,000 HIV test (Planned Parenthood at a Glance).
Racial and ethnic disparity in teen pregnancy rates abound. The National Campaign (2014), observed that African American female teens are twice in danger of getting pregnant than white teenagers; about four out of every ten of them would have gotten pregnant by their 20th birthday, and that as at 2010, the pregnancy rate for this racial group already stood at 99.5 out of every 1000 for female teens aged 15 to 19. Further studies suggest that the Hispanic/Latino minority group is not far behind, with rates greater than the national average (Shoff & Yang, 2012). The economic costs are enormous and multifaceted; educational, health, occupational, economic, and so on.
Practicing abortions are very controversial topic. According to the article “America Deserves Better”, it states abortion held center stage in a major national debate throughout the 21 century (Goldkamp 42). Some religions consider it a horrendous act. It is unacceptable in religions, no matter the reason. Society can label women who seek abortions as “sinful, selfish, dirty, irresponsible, heartless, or murderous” according to “The Bad Mother: Stigma, Abortion and Surrogacy” (Abrams 181).

Ethical Principles in Regards to Abortion Is it right or wrong to have an abortion? Adinma (2011) states that abortions have always been associated with moral, ethical, and religious issues for years; this is not anything recent. There needs to be an investigation on the reason for the abortion and why is it considered an ethical issue. According to Saadatmand, Ghodrati, Zarenezhad, and Akbarzadeh (2016) abortions are done for different reasons, even if considered right or wrong. Each and every situation is different, most ethical issues are between the nurse, the patient, and the reason for or not for the abortion or not.
