The Procedures of Abortion Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy before the woman gives birth Depending upon how far along the pregnancy is there are different procedures that may be preformed Abortions performed today are much safer than those performed hundreds of years ago Many women would induce their own abortions to save themselves for public embarrassment They would use coat hangers and knives which later left them with painful diseases It used to be looked at as one of the most horrible things that one could do Then again I guess that not much has changed in some peoples eyes There are still many disputes on whether abortion should be legal Some people only believe that an abortion may be carried out with in cases of rape incest or death to the mother for carrying the baby to term Others think that abortion should not be legal under any circumstances Some others seem to think that abortion is there as their birth control In very early abortions the uterus is emptied with the gentle suction of a syringe It can be done up to 49 days after the last menstrual period In some clinics women can choose to end their pregnancies by using a combination of drugs which is called a medical abortion The US FDA has not yet approved this method but is expected to do so in the near future This procedure does not require any surgery It must take place in the first six weeks Another procedure called suction curettage preformed in the first-trimester The abortionist dilates the cervix with a mechanical dilator or laminaria Then he inserts a tube with larger diameter into the uterus due to the larger body parts of the fetus The suction created by a vacuum tears the body of the fetus and the placenta apart If the fetuss body parts are too large
