{{Infobox abortion method}} contains a consistent style within which to summarise some key points about a particular method of induced abortion. Don't worry about trying to fill in all the fields — even if you can only get one or two, that still can be useful and many do not apply to all methods.

While editing an abortion article, copy and paste the following text at the top of the page: (If you prefer, you can include the pipes at the beginning of the line instead.)

Full form, showing required, desirable (?) and optional (blank) fields:

{{Infobox abortion method |
| name            = 
| AKA/Abbreviation= 
| Abortion_type   = REQUIRED
| Date_first_use  = ?
| Date_last_use   =  
| Gestational_age = REQUIRED
| Usage_notes     = 
| Use_AU%         = <!-- Australia -->
|   Use_AU_date   = 
| Use_CA%         = <!-- Canada-->
|   Use_CA_date   = 
| Use_FR%         = <!-- France-->
|   Use_FR_date   = 
| Use_NZ%         = <!-- New Zealand -->
|   Use_NZ_date   =
| Use_ZA%         = <!-- South Africa -->
|   Use_ZA_date   = 
| Use_SE%         = <!-- Sweden -->
|   Use_SE_date   =
| Use_EW%         = <!-- United Kingdom: England and Wales-->
|   Use_EW_date   =

|   Use_AB_date   = 
| Use_US%         = <!-- United States -->
|   Use_US_date   =
| Medical_notes   =

None of the fields are obligatory. Not all fields may be applicable to a particular method. For many fields (those not marked 'REQUIRED' or '?' above), if they are not defined then their row is not shown.

3) Health/Medical considerations

  • medical_notes - Optional - summary of medical considerations in selecting or avoiding a particular method. e.g. whether general anaesthesia is required, any specific risks.
