A Fact Sheet from the Abortion Access ProjectHistorically, women around the world have tried to end their unintended pregnancies whether abortion is legal or not, often jeopardizing their safety and health by self-inducing or seeking a dangerous illegal procedure. While there is very little relationship between abortion legality and abortion incidence, there is a strong correlation between abortion legality and abortion safety.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) defines unsafe abortion as a procedure for terminating unwanted pregnancy either by persons lacking the necessary skills or in an environment lacking the minimal medical standards or both.1
- Estimates of the annual number of illegal abortions in the United States during the1950s and 1960s range from 200,000 to 1.2 million.2
- Of the 46 million abortions occurring worldwide each year, 20 million take place in countries where abortion is prohibited by law.3
- Prior to Roe v.

This is 11 times safer than carrying a pregnancy to term and nearly twice as safe as a penicillin injection.2
- According to the WHO, in countries where abortion remains unsafe it is a leading cause of maternal mortality,1 accounting for 78,000 of the 600,000 annual pregnancy-related deaths worldwide.3
- Approximately 219 women die worldwide each day from an unsafe abortion.5
