An abortion is the removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus from the uterus, resulting in or caused by its death.
This can occur spontaneously as a miscarriage, or be artificially induced through chemical, surgical or other means.
Commonly, "abortion" refers to an induced procedure at any point in the pregnancy; medically, it is defined as a miscarriage or induced termination before twenty weeks' gestation, which is considered nonviable.
