ABOUT 500 THOUSAND ABORTIONS A YEAR IN GREECE
Athens, 30 March 2002 (16:42 UTC+2)
About 600.000 women die around the world each year due to complications linked to unsafe pregnancies, child-birth and abortions, while 500 million people do not have access to reliable information on ways of contraception.

On the occasion of the Contraception World Day, Prof. Kreatsas at the University of Athens School of Gynecology and Obstetrics, stressed that contraception means responsibility.

The most popular and safe contraception method across Europe, with the exception of Greece, is the pill. In Greece, a total of 500 thousand abortions are being recorded each year. Greek women are cautious toward the pill because they are afraid of the side effects and only a small percentage (2.4%) takes it, while in Europe the pill is preferred by 40% of women in reproductive age.



This is a massacre of the innocent children :(

HIGHEST ABORTION RATE
Thessaloniki, 7 December 2002 (15:49 UTC+2)


Greece has the highest abortion rate, both when compared to other European countries and to the United States. The high number of abortions being carried out, both before and after marriage, and which can cause serious complications in women's health, is the main reason for the very low birth rate in Greece. According to abortion surgeons, 40% of the decrease in women's fertility is due to abortions. It is estimated that approximately 150,000 couples in Greece are unable to have children, because they have at least one abortion in their history. There are more than 250,000 abortions a year, 40,000 of which are carried out on young girls under the age of 16. Also, one third of the women are married, who would have not had abortions if they had the financial means to support a larger family.

This sadly impressive data was announced by Professor of Obstetrics-Gynecology at AUTh, Ioannis Bonnis, speaking at the 2nd Panhellenic Conference of the Greek Fertility and Impotency Association, which is being held in Thessaloniki.

During the 1980-1999 period, fertility in Greece has dropped by 41%, twice the percentage decrease of the rest of Europe, while the US had an increase of 14% of their fertility rate.




Boulio, can you enlighten me a bit about this tradgic and sad situation? You should have been a lucky one my friend... :( :roll:

Abortion is a complicated matter. The way I see it it depends at what stage of pregnancy the abortion is done.

If for example it is done at a very early stage, when what the woman has inside is just a bunch of cells without any organs, especially brain, formed then I don't think you can consider this as a murder. (if we are talking about a fetus with formed organs then thats another story)

What can be considered is a lost chance of having a baby, but such lost chances happen whenever a woman has her period and her eggs go "wasted", or when men's sperm dies.

I know some religious people can not see things in an objective way because they are taught otherwise. Still, because you have certain beliefs( and you are free to do so) this doesn't mean you can accuse others about murder. As I said before this depends on the stage of pregnancy, and what the max stage should be is something debatable.

I believe abortion is a "right" not a "crime".

Having said that if one day technology develops enough to sustain babies life out of the womb, and at the same time if the goverment or anti-abprtion groups pays for the procedure of removing the fetus from womb, and place it in the lab till baby develops to self sustain then I guess then we can start discussing taking this right away from the woman.

Have a good day,

The point here is not whether someone believe the abortion is a right or crime. The point here is Greek women don't use the most popular and safe contraception methods. Don't they know that if they don't use contraception they would become pregnant and then be obliged to have abortion?


Other remarkable points here:

"40% of the decrease in women's fertility is due to abortions."

"150,000 couples in Greece are unable to have children, because they have at least one abortion in their history."

"There are more than 250,000 abortions a year, 40,000 of which are carried out on young girls under the age of 16."


It seems to me that this issue is one of the most imporatnt educational and psychological problem of Greek people. Both the individuals who does not care to use contaception methods and the government of Greece who does not care to take necessary educational measures in order to decrease the abortion rates, committing crime, imo.

Respect for Life is an advocate for human life. All life deserves respect, and should not be created if it won't be respected.

Marital rape is not considered a crime under the Greek Penal Code. Perhaps, this is one of the main reasons.
