NZ induced abortions 2018

NZ abortion statistics are compiled by Statistics New Zealand. They show how many abortions are in New Zealand each year. The statistics are released in June of each year.

Induced abortions, both surgical and medical, are carried out in hospitals and private clinics throughout New Zealand. By law, each abortion must be reported by law to the Abortion Supervisory Committee (ASC). The statistics are then composed into a report by the ASC, who present it to parliament.

This list begins in 1980, although induced abortions occurred prior to that year.
