EVIDENCE CHECK

Debunking a Critique of Guttmacher’s Methodology To Estimate Unsafe Abortion (July 30, 2012)
In a report published in the May 2012 issue of the journal Ginecología y Obstetricia de México, Elard Koch, of Chile’s Catholic University of the Most Holy Conception, et al., criticized a methodology developed by the Guttmacher Institute to estimate the number and rate of induced abortions and complications from unsafe abortions in countries where the procedure is highly restricted. However, Koch, et al. fail in both their attempt to discredit the Guttmacher methodology and their effort to present an alternative methodology for estimating abortion incidence in countries where the procedure is highly restricted.
