Differences Between Selective Termination of Pregnancy and Fetal Reduction in Multiple Pregnancy: A Narrative Review

Claire-Marie Legendre et al. Reprod Biomed Online.

Abstract

Although selective termination of pregnancy and fetal reduction in multiple pregnancy both involve the termination in utero of the development of live fetuses, these two procedures are different in several aspects. Nevertheless, several authors tend to amalgamate and confuse their psychosocial consequences and the ethical issues they raise. Therefore, this narrative review, derived from a comparative analysis of 91 articles, shines a light on these amalgamations and confusions, as well as on the medical, contextual, experiential and ethical differences specific to selective termination and fetal reduction.
