Supplementary notes

Curettage is a medical procedure usually performed post-abortion.
In Brazil, abortion is decriminalized in three cases: if the pregnancy is a result of rape, if performing an abortion is the only way to save the woman's life, or if the fetus suffers from anencephaly.
The figures presented here include curettages performed in cases of both legal and illegal abortions.
Numbers have been rounded.
