The termination of the pregnancy mighthave to do with the health of the mother herself, or maybe she is unable toattend to her childs needs after it is born, this may result in child abuseand mental disease. “Most abortions occur because contraception fails,because of a rape or because of a serious medical condition of the mother, whichcould lead to her death. ” In these situations abortion is often the onlyway that prevents the birth of an unwanted child or saves a mothers life.
