The Abortion-Preterm Birth Link


A study published by the New England Journal of Medicine, found that race is not a factor that impacts the rate of spontaneous termination of pregnancy, crippling and killing children. So why do black women have preterm delivery rates significantly higher than all other ethnicities according to the recently published New York State vital statistics?

Another recent study lends a clue. It found that a history of surgical abortion increased a woman’s risk of future pre-term births. The Institute of Medicine noted that induced abortion is an “immutable medical risk factor associated with preterm birth.” So if black women have a higher than average rate of pre-term birth one should see if they have a higher rate of abortion. Unsurprisingly, the recent report out of New York City shows just that.
