Action Life note: The term medical abortion refers to chemical abortions done for the most part through the use of the abortion pill regimen mifegymiso. CIHI stands for the Canadian Institute for Health Information which is responsible for the compilation and publication of abortion statistics in Canada. CIHI receives data from the provincial and territorial ministries of health, independent abortion clinics and hospitals. Abortion clinics are not required to submit their data  to CIHI whereas hospitals are federally required to do so.  Abortion statistics are at times incomplete with some clinics not reporting numbers of abortions.
