More than half of U.S. states have enacted laws instituting onerous requirements ostensibly for health safety called Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP). While TRAP proponents argue these regulations are necessary to ensure that abortion clinics have hospital-level facilities, less than .3% of abortion patients require hospitalization. The chance of dying from childbirth is 14x that of abortion. Moreover, the risk associated with abortion is no greater for out-of-hospital procedures than for those performed in a hospital.

Maternal mortality is extremely low in Ireland, where abortion is severely restricted. Perhaps the high rate of maternal mortality noted in the caption to this chart is a result of the high rate of abortion in the United States, where every state has a far higher rate of abortion than Ireland has.
