What is 'abortion culture'? Whenever family planning in former Soviet states is discussed it is almost inevitable that the phrase ‘abortion culture’ will be used to describe the context within which fertility was, and to an extent still is, controlled in this region. The aim of this paper is to look at the history of abortion in the region, to see how an abortion culture might have been created and maintained, and to suggest a framework for the analysis of abortion culture. The case of Estonia is used as an example and evidence from other former Soviet states and from Eastern and Central European countries is used for illustration of the issues discussed.
