Re: Is abortion worldwide becoming more restrictive?

7 December 2012

The title itself conveys that there is a growing restriction on abortion. But at the same time it must not end up with a loss of life because of religious or legal constraints. The very purpose of medicine is to save life and promote the health and well being of the individual being treated. It is very sad to hear about the loss of a life because of such restrictions.

It is a long debate about abortion which will never get universal agreement. It therefore depends upon the medical profession to have its say to decide about abortion. Abortion is not a method to restrict life but is a medical treatment to save the life of an endangered mother.
