Women who had abortions were 3. The Finland researchers found that compared to women who carried to term, women who aborted in the year prior to their deaths were 60 percent more likely to die of natural causes, seven times more likely to die of suicide, four times more likely to die of injuries related to accidents, and 14 times more likely to die from homicide.
Researchers believe the higher rate of deaths related to accidents and homicide may be linked to higher rates of suicidal or risk-taking behavior.
The leading causes of abortion related maternal deaths within a week of the surgery are hemorrhage, infection, embolism, anesthesia, and undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies.

Prior induced abortion not only increased the risk of premature delivery, it also increased the risk of delayed delivery. Women who had one, two, or more induced abortions are, respectively, 1. Abortion is associated with cervical and uterine damage which may increase the risk of premature delivery, complications of labor and abnormal development of the placenta in later pregnancies.
These reproductive complications are the leading causes of handicaps among newborns. One of the authors, Dr. Shah reported that one prior induced abortion multiplies premature birth risk by 1. Abortion is significantly related to an increased risk of subsequent ectopic pregnancies.
Ectopic pregnancies, in turn, are life threatening and may result in reduced fertility. PID is a potentially life threatening disease which can lead to an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy and reduced fertility.A major aspect of the debate over abortion concerns the use of terminology.
