After the Roe reversal, the United Nations’ sexual and reproductive agency gave a grave reminder to the public, stating that 45% of abortions performed in the world are unsafe.
As reported by npr, the UNFPA statement was as follows:
” Almost all unsafe abortions currently occur in developing countries, and UNFPA fears that more unsafe abortions will occur around the world if access to abortion becomes more restricted. Decisions reversing progress gained have a wider impact on the rights and choices of women and adolescents everywhere.”
We’ve all heard of the horrific stories involving unsafe abortions in low-income countries. Is that what’s going to happen to us now?
