===Laws & Social Stigmas===
Current law permits abortion only to save the woman’s life or, early in pregnancy, to provide “necessary treatment” (see box). Because almost all abortions take place illegally and in secret, information about abortion in Pakistan comes largely from studies of women hospitalized for abortion complications. While the evidence is limited, it is clear that postabortion complications account for a substantial proportion of maternal deaths in Pakistan.<ref></ref>
