A new study was conducted by researchers from the University of California to show what complications can occur during abortion procedures. After experts have studied a total of 54,911 procedures from 2009 to 2010 they finally settled to a conclusion. The study revealed that only 2.1 percent of women who had abortions were reported to present complications and 0.23 percent of those cases suffered major complications that needed blood transfusion or surgery.
Researchers have reported that procedures such as wisdom tooth extractions present a 7 percent rate of complication and a 9 percent rate in tonsillectomies. Studies also indicate that a major complication rate of 0.35 percent was presented in colonoscopy.
