Description: The United States has the highest rate of unintended pregnancy in the developed world. Women in the United States seek abortion for nearly one quarter of all pregnancies and for approximately half of all unintended pregnancies. An estimated 34% of U.S. women will have at least one induced abortion by the time they reach age 45. The estimated frequency of induced abortion worldwide ranges from 36 to 53 million procedures annually. Access to high-quality abortion care is essential to womenâ€²s health, as evidenced by the dramatic decrease in pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality since the legalization of abortion in the U.S. and by high rates of maternal death and complications in those countries where abortion is still performed under unsafe conditions. The past two decades have brought important advances in abortion care as well as increasing cross-disciplinary use of abortion technologies in womenâ€²s health care. Abortion is an important option for pregnant women who have serious medical conditions or fetal abnormalities, and fetal reduction techniques are now well-integrated into infertility treatment to reduce the risks of multiple pregnancies resulting from assisted reproductive technologies. The unique feature of this book will include its breadth of information and expertise, its practicality for both reproductive health specialists and primary care clinicians in the United States and other countries, and its provision of updated practices and protocols for non-surgical approaches to induced and spontaneous abortion.
