Countries Where Abortion is Banned

Countries where abortion is banned.

Before the nineteenth century, there were no laws on abortion and in 1869, Pope Pius IX declared that life is by design. As a result, the laws of the nineteenth century did not permit termination of pregnancy. These laws form the basis of restrictive legislation on abortion, which still exists in many developing countries. Between 1950 and 1985 almost all developed countries have liberalized abortion laws for safety reasons and because of human rights. Where abortion is still illegal, it is often because of old colonial laws and are not always an expression of opinion population.

Number of abortions in the world is estimated at 50 million annually, the total number of legal abortions performed worldwide at the end of World War II, amounted to over one billion. The first to legalize abortion were Soviet regimes in the 60s, reaching record levels by an average of two every birth abortions. Then, most developed countries have legalized abortion in the ’70s. Today, the pressure on developing countries who oppose legalization, such as Poland or Ireland, Europe and developing countries both in Africa, but also in Central America and South America.
