Medical Termination Of Pregnancy

 

A medical termination of pregnancy, also called drug abortion, happens when certain medications are used to induce an abortion. The recommended protocol usually consists of mifepristone and misoprostol, although many women choose to take their choice. Both medications are used in cases of medical abortion to prevent the development of the fetus. An abortion can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia or in the hospital if it is performed under general anesthetic. Some states allow physicians to perform the abortion themselves, but this is not widely practiced.



Abortions can also take place in other countries other than the United States. Some European countries allow elective abortion and some Middle Eastern countries have similar laws. In Canada, abortion is legal in all provinces except in the case of Quebec. Many cities in the United States have restrictive laws against providing abortion services and some of these cities prohibit its provision in hospitals. Some states have no laws at all on abortion.

Medical Termination Of Pregnancy can also take place outside of the United States. In countries where abortion providers are strongly opposed to abortion and in some places where abortion is totally banned, there is the possibility that patients traveling to one country can get an abortion at another country's hospital. Such a procedure has to be approved and performed by licensed medical personnel who must adhere to local rules and regulations. Legal procedures are followed, even if the patient did not seek medical assistance for her pregnancy. Such legal abortions do not necessarily respect the rights of the patient to privacy surrounding personal issues.

There is also the possibility that in the United States, an individual who has decided to have an abortion can travel to a country where such termination is prohibited, for example, if she wanted to have an abortion in Canada. The National Catholic Church opposes abortion, as they consider it to be immoral and a violation of the sanctity of life. Therefore, the government of Canada does not provide any assistance or benefits to women who have abortions or have been terminated from their pregnancy. This is in contrast to the laws prevailing in the United States, where the legality of the termination of pregnancy is not an issue for the Catholic Church.

As in the United States, some states have some form of mandatory waiting periods before a woman can obtain an abortion. For example in the state of Arkansas, a woman must wait a minimum of three days from the date of her last menstrual period before she can legally get an abortion. The waiting period in other states varies. In many countries such as Ireland, laws requiring women to wait periods in certain countries are not in force.

There are some jurisdictions where there are no laws at all on abortion. In these jurisdictions, in vitro fertilization, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, spontaneous abortion, and some related technologies are legal. Abortions performed in these jurisdictions are not regarded as 'full' abortion and do not require legalization. Some states do not differentiate between pregnancy terminations and therapeutic terminations. In these jurisdictions, abortion is legal when the life of the pregnant woman is in danger. Abortions that cause damage to the organs or cause mental or emotional harm are not legal.
