[Comment] Estimating abortion safety: advancements and challenges

In The Lancet, Bela Ganatra and colleagues1 present an innovative and important analysis of global abortion safety, in which they attempt to move beyond the binary understanding (safe or unsafe) of abortion safety. As the availability of misoprostol increases, and abortion telemedicine services reach more women worldwide, fewer women are undergoing abortions with invasive or outdated methods and more women are having abortions outside of formal health-care systems.2 These changes prompt a need for rethinking how we view and measure abortion safety.
