Too many abortions in Hungary

Hungary's right-wing conservative government has launched a campaign advising women dealing with unwanted pregnancy to give their children up for adoption rather than have an abortion. The doctor Endre Szabó lends his weight to the plan in the conservative daily Magyar Nemzet: "Today there is general agreement that abortions are harmful to women both physically and mentally. I myself have met many women who have become infertile as the result of an abortion. In such cases neither hormone treatments nor artificial insemination can be of any help. ... In Hungary today, for every 1,000 births there are 450 abortions. In 2009 there were a total of 45,000 abortions. Even if that is relatively low compared with the 1960s, when 200,000 pregnancies were terminated every year, it's still very high by international standards."
