|A legal abortion may be safer than giving birth to a baby, contends a report published Monday in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. According to the study, women were 14 times more likely to die during or after giving birth than to die from complications of an abortion. The study found that between 1998 and 2005, one woman died during childbirth for every 11,000 or so babies born. In comparison, just one woman of every 167,000 died from receiving a legal abortion.The overall message, according to the researchers, is that both abortions and giving birth are safe.|
