Scientists discuss relationship between abortion and violence against women
Date:3/8/2013

This press release is available in Spanish.

New York, March 8th 2013 Scientists of the United States of America, Ireland, and Chile met this week in New York to discuss recent scientific evidence regarding abortion as a form of growing violence against women and girls. Indiscriminate practice of abortion is significantly correlated with coercion, a history of sexual abuse, violence during pregnancy, intimate partner violence, and with psychological consequences that may lead to suicide.

The scientific evidence was discussed by Doctors Monique Chireau (North Carolina, USA), Donna Harrison (Illinois, USA), Eoghan de Faoite (Dublin, Ireland), and Elard Koch (Concepcin, Chile). The meeting "Public Policies to reduce maternal mortality, a holistic focus on maternal health" took place in parallel to the 57th Session of the Commission of Women Status of the United Nations, whose priority theme is the "elimination and prevention of all types of violence against women and girls", activity that will continue until March 15th.

The scientists discussed different epidemiological studies, showing that:

  • A significant and growing proportion of induced abortions occur due to coercion by the intimate partner of the pregnant woman.
  • A history of sexual abuse and violence is a risk factor for abortion and subsequent mental health problems.
  • There is a significant correlation between the increase in the number of abortions and an increase in the rate of homicides against women versus those against men.
  • There is an important correlation between the increase of abortions and the suicide rate of women of childbearing age.
  • Countries with abortion laws that are less permissive, such as Ireland and Chile, display lower abortion rates than countries with more permissive abortion laws.
