Serbia Abortion Facts

 

  • Serbia is the leader in  abortions in Europe, right after the former Soviet Union.

  • It is officially considered that between 150,000 to 200,000 abortions are performed each year.  This can be compared to about 67,000 births per year. That means for every live birth there are about 2 or 3 abortions performed.

  • Unlike other countries, the highest number of abortions in Serbia almost 80%  are carried out by women who are married.

  • Particularly disturbing is the large number of repeated abortions.  Some women have even had10 or more abortions and often use them as a method of contraception.

  • Especially for women who are married, every 3rd and subsequent child is threatened by abortion.

  • 90 % of teenage pregnancies are unwanted and the majority of them end up in abortion.

  • 60 % of students pregnancies are unwanted  and the majority of them end in abortion.

  • Awareness of the consequences of abortions in Serbia is very low. Only 3 % of women in Serbia believe that abortion is the murder of an unborn child.

  • Women who do not have the support of a partner or primary family to give birth to the baby, risk finding themselves on the street with a baby. In Belgrade, the Serbian capital, there is only one maternity home to accommodate single moms with babies up to a year.  Their capacity is 15 mothers for the entire country of 7 Million people!

  • Until opening of our counseling service in 2012, there was no pro-life center in Belgrade.

  • Belgrade is increasingly the center of abortion tourism.  This is where women come from other cities and countries to perform abortions.

  • In recent years there has been an increasing number of women performing sex-selective abortions. 

  • There is no national strategy to encourage moms to have children. Women often lose their jobs when they become pregnant.

  • In Serbia there is practically no research on post-abortion syndrome and its consequences.  There is also no support programs for women who have had an abortion.

  • Abortion is unfortunately also a method of birth control in the church. This is because abortion itself and its consequences are rarely discussed openly.
