This publication aims to provide objective information about the national policies and laws relating to induced abortion of all UN member states and non-member states. It does not attempt to address the contentious issues that surround the subject. The countries are arranged in alphabetical order, and this volume covers countries from Afghanistan to France. The report contains comparable information on: the grounds on which abortion is permitted; the reproductive health context; and the social and political background to policies adopted. Where possible, data on the incidence of abortion is included.
