I was looking up information about abortion and came across this.. On average, how many abortions does a woman have in her pre-menopausal years? http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081205072810AABPrlD only applies to women who have abortions obviously, and is abortion used as a means of birth control or it only used in dire emergencies(like if she gets pregnant from the stripper at her bachelorette party and she doesn't want her future spouse to know about it(really does happen by the way) Obviously it's reader generated answers but it still makes me wonder. here's hoping most Women don't do this. And the respond below that agreed with it. Best Answer - Chosen by Voters Most woman will have 5 or 6 in a lifetime. Yeah, that is the type of emergency that would warrant one.
