Several factors are responsible for the rising cases of unsafe abortion in sub-Saharan Africa.

In addition, peer pressure, abandonment by a spouse, limited knowledge on the situations abortion is permitted, inaccessibility to family planning methods and unintended pregnancy contribute to rising cases of unsafe abortion.
