BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | China concerned about abortions
Authorities in China have highlighted inadequate knowledge of contraception and poor sex education as major factors in the high number of abortions there.
There are 13 million abortions each year, compared to 20 million births, according to newly published research.
Researchers believe the real figure could be even higher because there are many abortions at unregistered clinics.
Other countries have higher rates. They include Russia - which some years has more terminations than births.
This is a very interesting article. I am curious to get thoughts on this. Tell me, what do you think?
