Contraception and Induced Abortion in the West Indies: A Review

Issue: 
DOI: 
564–70
Synopsis: 
This literature review about contraception and induced abortion in the West Indies shows quite a modest track of scientific records, poor knowledge of contraception, high estimated number of induced abortion and missing research on prevalence of abortion. Most islands have restrictive laws on abortion.

ABSTRACT

Background: Most islands in the West Indies do not have liberal laws on abortion, nor laws on pregnancy prevention programmes (contraception). We present results of a literature review about the attitude of healthcare providers and women toward (emergency) contraception and induced abortion, prevalence, methods and juridical aspects of induced abortion and prevention policies.
