Women can take the proper steps to even avoid having to go through an abortion. First step would be for women who are not ready to have a baby should always use protection during sex. There is no other method to avoid an unwanted pregnancy besides abstinence that will prevent you from having a child you are not ready for so you do not have to go through an abortion.
Another way women can help prevent an abortion would be to use the morning after pill or known as the emergency contraception pill. After having unprotected sex and you fear that you are going to become pregnant, you should go to the nearest clinic or pharmacy and pick this up as it is available over the counter. As long as used within the meet requirements, usually within 72 hours after having unprotected sex, the pill will terminate any possible chance of a sperm penetrating into an egg so a women can not become pregnant.
