Depending on the method, either starvation, dismemberment, oder poisoning results in death.

Why do women abort their children?

The reasons are complex and cannot be named precisely, since exact data are not collected in Germany. In general, however, it can be said that the overwhelming majority of the more than 100,000 abortions per year are due to

socioeconomic reasons.

These include financial fears, pressure to have an abortion from a partner, parents, or the like, as well as career plans.
