How to protect women’s health, prevent unwanted pregnancies – was discussed with students of the Dnieper College of Railway Transport. Usually young people do not discuss this with adults, but today this topic was raised by our colleagues from the regional Health Center. We talked about the dangers of abortion and advised how best to protect yourself from it. We believe that our stories will help young people take the right steps.
Last year, 6 girls under the age of 14 years old, 88 girls aged 15-17 and 230 girls aged 18-19 aborted their pregnancies in Dnipropetrovsk region. In total, the number of abortions last year reached a sad mark of 8,301, which is 11.1 cases per 1,000 women of childbearing age. It is very worrying that 693 of them are pregnant for the first time.
