Babies are a blessing. However, there are many reasons why someone would want to get an abortion. Most couples choose abortion because they are not ready – financially or psychologically - for a baby. These moms and dads are unable to support or care for a child. The next common reason people choose abortion is to end an unwanted pregnancy. Others do it because they fear their baby will have embarrassing defects or medical conditions. Most constitutions support abortion if it is done to save the life of the mother or in rape cases. This prevents the mother from being afflicted by mental or physical problems associated with the baby.

There are safe and unsafe methods of abortion. Safe methods of abortion include procedures that safely terminate a pregnancy without putting the life of the mother in danger. These methods include the use of abortion pills or by suction. Both methods are done in a clinic. Unsafe methods of abortion include procedures that are likely to end in grave consequences for the mother. These methods are often acts of desperation and include using coat hangers such in the case of Whoopi Goldberg, punching the stomach until abortion is induced, using other sharp objects to break the amniotic sac and inserting toxic mixtures such as chili peppers into the womb. This could lead to the woman bleeding to death.

Safe or unsafe, even celebrities have had abortions. Here are 10 celebrities you didn’t know have had an abortion:

Cho entered into a relationship with an irresponsible man. They then became pregnant. Cho didn’t want to keep the baby. So she went to the doctor. The doctor recognized her from TV. The doctor started chatting her up about her TV show but all she could say was “You know what? That’s fine, but could you just kill my baby?” Today, she is engaged to Al Ridenour and is a successful singer-songwriter, fashion designer, and comedienne. She is also openly bisexual and has appeared in films such as Face/Off alongside John Travolta and Drop Dead Diva.
