! Forcing women, who want to
undergo such a rocedures, to do it in the clandestinity, or travelling to countries, where there is a
legal #ramewor% #or it! According to the &uttmacher Institute
'highly restrictive abortion laws are
not associated with lower abortion rates(! "he roblem with those sort o# laws is the #act that
women who loo% #or an abortion use illegal, unclean and most o# the time unsa#e methods! )nsa#e

"o reduce the mortality rate among women the abortion should be legali6ed worldwide and #amily
lanning services should be imlemented by governments and its use encouraged, that is to say, the
