Convenience or non-voluntary abortion as a woman's right is an issue that divided the population forever, with certain periods of greater importance. There are a large number of arguments for critics from ethical issuessuch as the life of the unborn, to others associated with health of the pregnant woman herself.
In this last point there are those who claim that women who voluntarily give up At that time, symptoms or diseases are developed, which could prevent the pregnancy from being transmitted on time. To see if it really makes sense, he published a team of American scientists Annals of Internal Medicine a study that tracks evolution 874 pregnant women who wanted to undergo abortion between 2008 and 2010. Some have achieved this while others have been denied the opportunity to do so and have finished childbirth. Then, it was checked whether each group had health problems over time. The answer, as expected, again denies the critics of abortion.
Consequences of unwanted pregnancy
Of all the women who took part in the procedure, they were baptized as a "Retreat" study, 328 people were discontinued in the first trimester of pregnancy, 383 in the second and 163 completed labor, exceeding the limit considered appropriate for abortion.
Women were interrogated over the phone five years after pregnancy
Everyone was interviewed over the phone by the authors of the study five years after pregnancy. In these conversations, they were asked about various issues, from them physical and mental health to social or work achievements which they obtained at this time. In addition, they answered questions about the status of your relationship and contraceptive methods they used.
One of the first points to be analyzed was whether or not they had abortions were broken after this. Many critics of this practice, as well as some studies, ensure that many of them get depressed or even commit suicide after making a decision. This time, however 95% of them admitted it stopping her pregnancy was a good decision.
Regarding the health problems analyzed, which included hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma, arthralgia, diabetes or obesityamong others, those who stopped learning did not experience an increase in the incidence. However, the case of those who moved the pregnancy to the term was different because they developed more health problems, albeit in a very small percentage.
In particular, during pregnancy they emphasized conditions such as gestational hypertension and in later years migraines or joint painOn the other hand, in the other physical symptoms analyzed, there were almost no differences between the three groups. On the other hand, those who did not stop showed more problems related to anxiety and a greater tendency to stay offensive relationshipsThese psychological problems also manifested in their work and social results because they were less likely aspire to new life plans next year.
There were also a few death, four among women who were born and four among women who broke in the second trimester. However, the causes of these deaths they did not show any connection with pregnancy in any of the groups.
In short, this study shows a slight increase in the case of health problems in women who gave birth after refusing abortion. The study authors admit that the data is not enough to find clarity causal relationship, beyond coincidenceBut they are able to maintain that abortion does not affect the health of women, either physically or mentally. Therefore, this argument should not be used to refute what is more than obvious that it is a human right. Of course, you always have to fight for the right to live. For a dignified life in which women can decide what to do with their life and body, and all children who come into the world, make it desirable by those who gave birth to them. This is an argument that should not be overlooked.
