Abortions are some of the most common medical procedures that are performed. Abortions are used to terminate pregnancies. It is one of the most controversial medical field and surgical topics. Many women decide to end their pregnancies for many reasons, but the majority of terminated pregnancies are because the female is young, unmarried, without money, etc. Having an abortion does not change what was done or what happened in the past.
Before Roe v. wade the number of deaths from illegal abortions was around 5000 and in the 50s and 60s the number of illegal abortions ranged from 200,000 to 1.2 million per year. These illegal abortions pose major health risks to the life of the woman including damage to the bladder, intestines as well as rupturing of the uterus. The choice to become a mother must be given to the woman most importantly because it’s her body, her health, and she will be taking on a great responsibility. A woman’s choice to choose abortion should not be restricted by anyone; there are multiple reasons why abortion will be the more sensible decision for the female. Women who are victims of rape will always be in remembrance of their terrifying experience, which sometimes result in neglect and unfair treatment of the child due to the woman’s rape trauma syndrome.
In contras, each year in Indonesia, millions of women become pregnant unintentionally, and many choose to end their pregnancies, despite the fact that abortion is generally illegal. Abortion due to unwanted pregnancy is considered the best solution. Whereas it is the same as solving the problem with a new problem. Like many pregnant women by “accident” in many developing countries where abortion is stigmatized and highly restricted, Indonesian women often seek abortion with harm procedures performed by untrained providers (for example; dukun). Some women already know the negative impact of having an abortion but most women tend to ignore it.
The Roe v. Wade case decision has been very controversial even today when it comes to abortion. This case argued that abortion should be legal and that women should have the right to decide such important decision. Roe v. Wade divided the nation during the 1970s like no other case has before. In the 1970's every state had different laws and regulations in regards to abortion but most states banned abortion unless the health of the mother could be at risk if she was to give birth (McBride). There were a few states were abortions were legal but not too many women could afford to travel and have the procedure there so underground abortion clinics began to appear in states were abortion was illegal and the people performing these procedures were
At the beginning of the twentieth century, almost every woman was concerned with obtaining the desired curves of the time. “Buxom ladies tortured their flesh to achieve the hourglass figure… all laced themselves so tightly that they distorted their figure into the exaggerated ‘S’ shape associated with the era... the ‘health’ corset produced a hand span waist…” (Thomas). The health corsets on the early 1900s actually allowed the wearer to breathe, a new privilege every other corset did not allow. The corsets that were required to build the curves of the Gibson Girl era required lots of time, effort, and money. Women could not get these corsets on themselves

Health Concerns are a huge issue. “38% of girls trafficked from Nepal into India have HIV” (CITE). Pregnancy is also a large concern. Clients can refuse the use of protection, and many illegal abortions are performed without the correct medical protocol or trained doctors. (CITE).
Furthermore, Silal et al. (2012) also suggested that often women were mistreated by being turned away from the clinics as they far enough within the labour period, this would however, resulted in some still births as no one with medical training was around when they mother gave birth (Silal et al., 2012) Another root cause of maternal mortality rate is culture paired with education (Kakuma et al., 2010). Which is also rooted in poverty. As many women do not have access to health facilitates due to their location, they are often dependent on traditional healers rather than doctors (Ngomane & Fhumulani, 2010). As this is a constant within rural communities it often becomes a practice in which the community does not seek formal, western medical assistance, but uses the guidance of elders and rational healers (Ngomane & Fhumulani, 2010).
This issue increased the number of infant children, specifically girls who killed after born. In addition, the abortion became very common in china after they inform them that the baby's gender is female or the government force the parents to abort the child if it was there second baby (internet source
Abortions are done for many different reasons, including not wanting a child in the first place, not wanting the burden of a mentally challenged child, inability to afford to keep one, and it is also used as a form of contraception in some cases. In the United States, about 1.2 million abortions are performed each year. 9 out of 10 abortions are usually done within the first trimester (Webmd.com). There have been many debates and cases against or for abortion, like Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and the Hyde Amendment of 1976 (UShistory.org). The topic of abortion has been and still is discussed by feminist and religious groups and other people on whether or not it should be legal, and if it is a matter of whether a woman has the right to her own body.
For example, many pro life people would say that if a woman doesn’t want the responsibility of raising a child, they should just put it up for adoption (1). This is not necessarily a fair accusation considering that not all women who want an abortion want it because they don’t want the responsibility. Having a child can be extremely expensive, even if you are not planning to keep the child. While pregnant, women have to make multiple trips to the doctor to make sure their pregnancy is going well. Also, the hospital bill for giving birth can be in the thousands of dollars by itself (1).
Susan Cahill lives in Flathead Valley in Montana and was the only person in the area providing abortions to woman.
