Lack of family planning services and lack of information about sex sometimes lead to unwanted pregnancy and abortion.

When a woman does something to end a pregnancy, this is called an ‘abortion’. We use the word abortion only to describe an action that is planned. The unplanned, natural loss of a pregnancy we call a ‘miscarriage’.
