Although the vast majority of abortions are performed in first trimesters still 10 % - 15 % of terminations have taken place in second trimester globally. As compared to first trimester, second trimester abortions disproportionately contribute to maternal morbidity and mortality, especially in low resource settings where access to safe second trimester abortion is limited. Main aim of the study was to establish the safety of medical method for second trimester abortion with least morbidity and mortality. Induced second trimester abortion is high despite the availability of first trimester abortion services and also due to diagnosis of anamolies mainly in second trimester. Increased accessibility and availability of safe second trimester abortion services, counselling and logistical support are helpful to minimize late abortion.
