Estimates of induced abortion in Mexico: what's changed between 1990 and 2006?

TLDR
Clandestine abortion continues to negatively affect women's health in Mexico, and recommended responses include broadening the legal criteria for abortion throughout Mexico, improving contraceptive and postabortion services, and expanding training in the provision of safe abortion.

Legal abortion worldwide in 2008: levels and recent trends.

TLDR
High abortion rates in some countries, and small increases in rates in others, indicate a great need for more effective family planning services for these populations, and suggests reliable data collection systems are lacking in many countries.

The estimated incidence of induced abortion in Ethiopia, 2008.

TLDR
Unsafe abortion is still common and exacts a heavy toll on women in Ethiopia, and increased access to high-quality contraceptive care and safe abortion services is needed.

Induced abortion in Colombia: new estimates and change between 1989 and 2008.

TLDR
Improvements in provision of and access to contraceptive and legal abortion services are needed to meet the increased demand among women and couples to prevent unintended pregnancy and unsafe abortion in Colombia.

Country-specific estimates of unintended pregnancy and abortion incidence: a global comparative analysis of levels in 2015–2019

TLDR
A Bayesian model was developed which jointly estimated unintended pregnancy and abortion rates using information on contraceptive needs and use, contraceptive method mix, birth rates, the proportions of births from unintended pregnancies and abortion incidence data, and between-country heterogeneity.

Unintended pregnancy: worldwide levels, trends, and outcomes.

TLDR
The incidence of pregnancy by intention status and outcome at worldwide, regional, and subregional levels for 2008 is estimated, and recent trends since 1995 are assessed.

The incidence of abortion worldwide.

TLDR
Accurate measurement of induced abortion levels has proven difficult in many parts of the world, and developed and developing countries can have low abortion rates while most countries have moderate to high abortion rates, reflecting lower prevalence and effectiveness of contraceptive use.

Legal abortion worldwide: incidence and recent trends.

TLDR
The abortion rate varies widely across the countries in which legal abortion is generally available and has declined in many countries since the mid-1990s.

The incidence of induced abortion in the Philippines: current level and recent trends.

TLDR
The increase in the level of induced abortion seen in some areas may reflect the difficulties women experience in obtaining modern contraceptives as a result of social and political constraints that affect health care provision.

Estimated Levels of Induced Abortion In Six Latin American Countries

In countries where abortion is illegal a range of approximate levels of induced abortion can be calculated from data on the number of women hospitalized for treatment of abortion complications after

Recent trends in abortion rates worldwide.

TLDR
Findings indicate that abortion rates have declined sharply in formerly socialist countries in Central and Eastern Europe and Russian satellite countries, which may account for abortion decline in developed countries.

Relationships between contraception and abortion: a review of the evidence.

TLDR
Rising contraceptive use results in reduced abortion incidence in settings where fertility itself is constant, and the parallel rise in abortion and contraception in some countries occurred because increased contraceptive use alone was unable to meet the growing need for fertility regulation in situations where fertility was falling rapidly.

Estimating the Level of Abortion In the Philippines and Bangladesh

TLDR
Estimation techniques suggest that the abortion rate in the Philippines is within the range of 20-30 induced abortions per 1000 women 15-49 years old while the rate in Bangladesh is 26-30 per1000 women.
