The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) began routine abortion surveillance in 2000 to document legal induced abortions, also known as induced termination of pregnancy (ITOP). Abortion surveillance provides the data necessary to examine the trend in total numbers of legal induced abortions, as well as the demographic characteristics of women who obtain them. This information may help to increase the awareness of an additional aspect of pregnancy outcomes. These data are necessary to improve the health and well being of both women and infants.
