    Hi there!

    I'm looking at abortion in RE at the moment (a topic I'm finding really interesting actually) and I couldn't find some statistics.

    For any doctors here, or anyone who might know, can you please supply me with information about how many abortions there are per year because of deformity in the foetus? If possible, could you also supply a link, or any kind of reference to the background for your information?

    Many thanks!!!!!! :)

    If anybody can help, I would be infinitely grateful!:D

    Foetii that have critical deformity auto-abort. This is the case in better than 98% of inseminations in which pregnancy ends in the first trimester. In fact MOST inseminations auto-abort in less than two weeks. The process of delivery is triggered by the foetus, which means that most pre-term labor can be traced to foetal distress or poor condition.

    This would reduce induced abortions for deformed foetii to almost zero % by sheer mass of statistics.
