Why are women choosing to get an abortion?

Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be a very stressful situation. Often people have sex to enjoy and experience pleasure, without the intent of becoming pregnant. An ongoing pregnancy becomes a lifetime responsibility, and a woman may decide that being pregnant is not the best option for her and she will seek abortion. In fact, it is common that a woman may choose abortion more than once during her lifetime. A woman may choose to have an abortion for many different reasons [1], but ultimately she should make a decision that is best for herself.
