As the Data Show, Medical Abortion Is Safe
In 2020, medical abortion accounted for only 31.9% of voluntary termination of pregnancy (VTP) procedures in Italy. This finding comes from the most recent Ministry of Health report on the implementation of Law 194 of 1978. Data show that Italy's percentage of medical abortion is significantly lower in comparison with other countries in Europe. For example, in France and England, medical abortion is used in more than 70% of VTPs, and in Nordic countries, it is used in more than 90%.
@raju Why are women in Italy more likely to rule out use of medical agents to end a pregnancy? One reason is the widespread and unfounded misconceptions about efficacy and safety, misconceptions that become stronger whenever there is a political debate on the subject.
