Many things really need to be put into perspective when it comes to abortion.

"YES", contraceptive methods can help in preventing pregnancy but sometimes these contraceptive methods fail. Moreover, not all couples use contraception too, as they are not aware of it as much. Thus, it causes an unwanted pregnancy. A girl gets shocked when she becomes pregnant. Thus, she decides for abortion after keeping listed points in the mind:

Intimacy without marriage is unholy: Our society never allows a girl to be pregnant without marriage. That is why unwanted pregnancies often choose the abortion route. If a girl becomes pregnant before marriage then she does not get respect from the society.



There is no money: Most of the girls choose abortion because a woman or couple does not have their life sorted out or are living in extreme poverty. She is living in extreme poverty and knows that you do not have the ability to support a newborn; you might just be inclined to go down this route.

• Because there is an element of danger, sometimes, an abortion becomes a necessity as well. Yes, if a woman can develop certain complications, which can pose a threat or danger to her life, doctors can suggest that she go in for an abortion.

Betrayal and other reasons:What a girl can do if the person she trusted the most, leaves her when he comes to know that she is pregnant? The society would be against her, her parents might not be supportive and there is nobody in the world that she can actually count upon. Thus, she has only a single option of abortion.
