Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A review of termination of pregnancy in a district hospital catchment area for 1970 to 1972 shows how a decrease in total numbers of terminations and repeat terminations may be effected by the use of intensive family planning. In 1972 over 80% had first trimester abortions, but most of the second trimester abortions came from the manual skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled occupational groups. Over half those attending for termination had never used any method of contraception. Acceptance of family planning after termination was high but motivation poor, emphasizing the suitability of intrauterine devices inserted at the time of termination. The complication rate after termination was low.
