Abstract

In underdeveloped countries, where abortion is still illegal and not easily accessible, the number of unsafe abortions is soaring, as are the associated complications. However, in developed countries, where termination of pregnancy is legal and freely accessible, unsafe methods are uncommonly seen and reported. We report one such case of self induced abortion with instrumentation that presented to an accident and emergency department in the United Kingdom.
