Case Report 


A case report: Unsafe abortion

Jaspinder Kaur, Kawaljit Kaur.

Abstract
Unsafe Abortion constitutes a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality in developing countries. It is randomly practiced though exact statistics is not available due to lack of cooperation from concerned parties. Complications occur in a large portion of these cases which ultimately require tertiary care. This case report of complications associated with an unsafe abortion highlights the need for raising the awareness among women and healthcare providers regarding education on contraception and availability of safe and legal abortions with better access to abortion and post abortion services.

Key words: Unsafe Abortion; Contraception; Legal Abortions
