Therapeutic Abortions


Research suggests that as many as 10% of women with HG will terminate their pregnancy due to the severity of their symptoms. Termination should only be discussed when all other treatment avenues have been exhausted with little efficacy. We want to avoid the termination of a wanted pregnancy due to complications associated with HG. No woman should have to end a pregnancy because her symptoms are too severe for her to cope, so abortion should be the absolute last resort as a treatment for HG. If you have a patient requesting information about termination please direct her to Children By Choice.
