Prevent Preterm puts key medical research in your hands.
Researchers have conducted over 100 peer-reviewed studies, involving mothers and newborns from 34 countries, that shed light on the long-term effects of abortion. These studies consistently show that abortion is a risk factor for preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies. The odds of a preterm birth increase with just one abortion, and increase even more for women who have had multiple abortions.
Prevent Preterm's guide to the medical literature on abortion and preterm birth is available below as an Issuu publication and as a pdf download.
