And then there is the issue of the health of the mother. Both intrusive and non-intrusive ways of conducting abortion have serious ramifications to the mother’s health. Researchers have linked abortion to a horde of conditions including ectopic pregnancy, cancer, and even infertility in some cases. A mother that procures abortion has a 30% risk of an ectopic pregnancy while a mother that procures abortion for 2 or three times has a 160% probability of getting an ectopic pregnancy. This might explain why there has been a huge increase in ectopic pregnancies ever since abortion was legalized in America.
