Key message points
- Categorising women undergoing abortion into groups according to number of previous abortions has little scientific merit.
- Women undergoing their first abortion and women undergoing subsequent abortions should be treated no differently.
- Future research on abortion should focus more on psychosocial antecedents to unintended pregnancy
