Abortions can be of many types such as: – • Miscarriage: – A miscarriage is commonly referred to as spontaneous abortion due to the fact that these types of abortions results due to accidental trauma or natural causes. Most of these abortions result from uneven replication of chromosomes or some kind of complication in the mother’s reproductive organs such as ovarian cysts and uterine cancer. In addition to this, environmental factor may also play a role in natural abortions. • Artificially induced abortions: – Artificially induced abortion refers to the deliberate removal of the embryo through surgery. These types of abortions can be sub-classified into therapeutic abortions and elective abortions: – • Therapeutic abortion: – This kind of abortion is performed either to save the life of the mother, remove the fetus that bears some kind of fatal congenital disease or deformities or simply to reduce the number of embryos in order to prevent the health risks related to multiple pregnancy
