Previous Abortion and the Risk of Low Birth Weight and Preterm Births

An article (abstract) in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health investigates the link between abortion and low birth weight (LBW) and preterm birth (PB).

Conclusion: Previous abortion is a significant risk factor for LBW and PB, and the risk increases with the increasing number of previous abortions. Practitioners should consider previous abortion as a risk factor for LBW and PB.
