Myth-Busting Monday: 'Pregnancy is safer than abortion'

Every Monday EFC busts myths and take names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

Statistically legal abortion is safer for women than carrying a pregnancy to term and giving birth. This fact has been in the news recently thanks to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ recommendation to healthcare professionals that: ‘Women should be advised that abortion is generally safer than continuing a pregnancy to term’.
