4 autonomous communities did not perform any abortions in their public centers throughout 2020. That is clear from the State Registry of Voluntary Interruptions of Being pregnant revealed this Tuesday by the Ministry of Well being, coinciding with World Protected Abortion Day.
The Group of Madrid, Murcia, Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura solely carried out voluntary interruptions of being pregnant (IVE) in the personal well being community, as recorded by the specialised portal Redacción Médica.
They’re probably the most hanging circumstances however they mirror the a lot better weight of the personal well being system over the public when dealing with an abortion. Of the 88,269 registered in Spain throughout 2020 in one of many 207 licensed centers, 78.04% have been carried out in a privately owned establishment.
There are 4 other areas in which they’re carried out in a minimum of one public entity however in which the personal ones are the bulk. These are the circumstances of Cantabria, Aragón, Castilla y León and Andalusia, particularly hanging in the latter group, with a public heart in comparison with 15 personal ones.

The 88,269 interruptions in 2020 characterize a lower of round 10% in comparison with 2019 (from 11.53 out of 1,000 in 2019 to 10.30 final yr). The autumn is conditioned by the results of confinement and the coronavirus. The decline is mirrored in all areas and in every age group.
The 71.85% voluntary interruptions have been practiced earlier than the gestation week and solely 0.18% occurred past the twenty-third. From the statistics revealed by Well being it’s also clear that 41.31% of these affected did not use contraceptives.
