Is abortion safe?

Yes. Abortion is very safe. In fact, abortion is one of the safest and most common surgical procedures in the United States. It is estimated that one in three American women will have an abortion by the time she is 45 years old and that 60% of women are already mothers at the time of their abortion. And, although every procedure carries some risk, abortion is actually safer than carrying a pregnancy to term and delivering vaginally. Less than 0.3% of abortion patients experience a complication at or before 8 weeks. Northland Family Planning provides the very best medical and abortion care.
