Abortion among adolescents and girls

Young women and girls account for nearly one-third of all unsafe abortion-related deaths each year worldwide, with 15% of all unsafe abortions taking place among adolescents ages 15-19. Despite growing global attention to the health and welfare of adolescents and girls, little is known about the abortion experiences of girls under the age of 15. This factsheet examines the unique abortion-related experiences and needs of adolescents (ages 15-19) and girls (ages 10-14), based on a comprehensive literature review Ipas conducted in 2018.
