New Zealand Clinics Made Women Wait to Get Abortions Done

According to a research conducted by Auckland University, women are waiting for a month to undergo an abortion. The appropriateness of services in nine New Zealand clinics was analyzed in the study, which got published in the journal Reproductive Health.

As per the study, half of the women who wanted to get abortions done had to wait for duration of more than 25 days. Though, abortion was a safe procedure provided, it is done on time. The risk of complications increased, as the gestation age increases.

She shared that referring doctors should reduce waiting times. About 38% of women opine that they had waited too long for the procedure. But, 15% waited long for it, but did not feel uncomfortable to wait, as per an anonymous questionnaire.

Dr. Silva shared that the study has managed to highlight the need for paying attention to women's condition of health and should cater to their needs immediately, if there is urgency. However, it was the first ever study of abortion services in New Zealand.

Before the abortion is conducted, approval of two certifying consultants is required, which leads to the delay. Though, this obligation for pregnant women to see two certifying consultant, should be removed, as per Labour MP Steve Chadwick.
