Physical and psychological complications may differ from individual; especially those who undergone induced abortion suffer from immediate complications. However, most of the complications take some time to develop and are not apparent until to some extent or period of time. A 1997 study in Finland showed that women who undergo abortion are approximately four times likely to die in the following year compared to those who carried their pregnancies until the end term. Additionally, compared to women who carried until end term, women who undergo abortion were 60 percent more likely to die because of natural causes and 14 times more likely to die from homicide 1 . The elevated risk of death are apparently related to higher suicidal rates and risky behaviors. A Denmark study of its women population which showed similar results found risk of death increases gradually with each abortion, with 45% in the first abortion, 114% after two abortions, and 192% after three or more abortions. Induced abortion may pose an indirect role in development of cervical cancer. A Norwegian study showed that 6.1% of induced abortion applicants had human papillomavirus (HPV) infection 2 . The proportions to develop HPV risk was 89.7%. Women who have history of at least one abortion face higher risk of developing cervical cancer, which is approximately 2.3 times higher than those who have no history of abortion. The increased cancer rates for women who had undergone post-abortion may be related to the unnatural disruption of hormonal changes during pregnancy and untreated cervical damage which is accompanied by stress and impacts the immune system negatively.
