According to the Guttmacher Institute, about one in three American women will have had an abortion by the time she reaches age 45. There is also a broad cross section of U.S. women who have abortions: 58% of women are in their 20's; 61% have one or more children; 85% are unmarried; 69% are economically disadvantaged; and 73% report a religious affiliation.
Abortion is one of the safest surgical procedures for women in the United States. Fewer than 0.5% of women obtaining abortions experience a complication, and the risk of death associated with abortion is about one-tenth that associated with childbirth. Abortion is the second most commonly performed medical procedure for women in the last thirty years, second to Caesarean sections.
