Abortion Safer than Childbirth

PRCH medical director Anne Davis, MD, MPH, was interviewed by Reuters about a new Obstetrics & Gynecology study, which found that, in the U.S., "[t]he risk of death associated with childbirth is approximately 14 times higher than that with abortion. Similarly, the overall morbidity associated with childbirth exceeds that with abortion."

Dr. Davis told Reuters that the study’s findings could help dispel myths about abortion’s risks and give patients confidence "… that the medical care they're having is safe, long-term and short-term."
