´╗┐Aborting a pregnancy is terminating the embryo, fetus or child. Aborting is when the pregnancy is unwanted and the parents wish to not have a child. Aborting also means the removal of an embryo or fetus from the mother, however there are several kinds of abortions, such as:

The Spontaneous Abortion this in other words is called a miscarriage.

The Induced Abortion is when the course of pregnancy is stopped due to drugs (prescribed for this).

An abortion is when you can get doctors to forcefully move the embryo or fetus during an operation.

An abortion you can get is when the embryo is under the weeks of 9, oral medicines can be used.

To remove the deceased baby, a D&C is used, this is the procedure used to remove unwanted substances, this is normally used after a miscarriage and D&C stands for Dilation and Curettage. Dilation is when they open up the cervix, curettage is when they remove the contents of the uterus.

These are very emotional operations to go through and unfortunately this is one of the most common operations used on women under the age on 17, as well as abortions.
