Many specialists do not want to enter this controversial field of abortions fearing its repercussions. Some of them with a religious bent of mind prefer to stay away from performing abortions, while the rest do not want to attract attention of anti-abortion campaigners.

Of course, this study is not in-depth and may not have addressed other key facets necessary to arrive at the precise statistics.
