These crops aren’t always plentiful due to the desert climates in most countries.
Using the multivariate logistic regression synthesis, it is clear that demographic and social predictors are behind disparities in seeking the services across the vast nation. The CDC abortion surveillance reports that in 2013, a total of 664,435 legal practiced abortions were recorded from their 49 reporting centers. The rate for the same year was 12.5 per 1000 women with the ages 15-44 years while the abortion rate at 200:1000 live births.

A novel approach to community-based care is needed for improving the health outcomes of these patients, and reducing the healthcare costs.

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.
