Abortion is the stage where the pregnancy is ended even before one gives birth; it occurs by removing the embryo or fetus before it can even survive outside the mother’s uterus. A spontaneous abortion is generally known as a miscarriage and an abortion that is caused on purpose is called the induced abortion or induced miscarriage. The word abortion is often and mainly used to refer to induced abortions and a similar method is present where the fetus can actually survive out of the womb is called late termination of pregnancy.
