This is the termination of pregnancy before the foetus is capable of independent life. Therefore, it is the termination of a person's life. It ends a pregnancy by destroying and removing the developing child. The baby's heart has already begun to beat by the time the mother misses her period and begins to wonder if she might be pregnant. This may either occur naturally or else it maybe medically induced to end a dangerous or unwanted pregnancy. The most common symptom of threatened abortion is vaginal bleeding, with or without intermittent pain. .
Young women between the ages of 11 and 19 account for about 21% of all abortions; women 20 to 24 account for another 34%; and about 22% of abortions are obtained by women who are 30 or older.

Surgical abortion is the removal of a foetus from the uterus before it is mature enough to live on its own. When this happens spontaneously we call it a miscarriage. Induces abortion is brought about deliberately by a medical procedure that ends pregnancy. Legal abortion, carried out by trained medical practitioners, is one of the most common and safest surgical procedures. Fewer than 1 percent of all abortion patients experience a major complication associated with the procedure. Two method can be used to induce surgical abortion. The most common method is to open the cervix (the entrance to the uterus) slightly and remove the contents of the uterus (including the foetus and placenta). The second method, used much less frequently, is to induce labour, so that the foetus and placenta are expelled as in childbirth. This method is used mainly when pregnancies are past 22 weeks. During the yeas that abortion was illegal, more pregnant women died from complications from self-induced abortions or abortion attempted by untrained or unqualified practitioners than from any other cause.
