Abortion- global view

Status of Abortion in countries around the globe

Abortion is legal in all but 4 countries around the world i.e; 191 countries out of 195 allow abortion for one or other reason and the common reason is to save the life and health of the mother. So do you think there’s a change in the evolution of ‘Motherhood’ around centuries? When fear creeps in…love is lost.
