Abortion means termination of pregnancy that occurs before the 22nd week of pregnancy. Abortions are classified into early abortion (before 12th week of pregnancy) and late abortion (after 12th week and before 22nd week of pregnancy). Abortions are also classified into induced abortion and spontaneous abortion. A childbirth after the 22nd week or before the 37th week of pregnancy is called premature birth.
