Abortion rates: Is a rough estimate better than no estimate at all?

Bioethics Research Notes 24 (2):32 (2012)

Abstract
Alstin, Zac Conventional wisdom teaches that prohibition is counter-productive. We are all familiar with the idea that making something illegal - whether it be drug abuse, alcohol consumption, or abortion - merely 'drives it underground'. Abortion is indeed one of the most potent examples, with the spectre of 'backyard abortion' haunting any talk of restricting abortion access. On a global scale the term 'unsafe abortion' serves the same purpose - reinforcing the idea that unless abortion is made safe, legal, and easy to access, women will resort to abortion practices that are intrinsically unsafe.
