Abortion, sometimes known as a 'termination of pregnancy,' is the medical process of ending a pregnancy to ensure that it does not end in the birth of a baby. Women have abortions for many reasons, including personal circumstances, a risk to the mother or a high chance that the baby will have a serious genetic or physical abnormality.
