Description Mortality ratios and the proportion of abortion-related deaths by place of residence in states with less and more permissive abortion legislation. Left panels illustrate trends in MMR (top panel), MMRAO (middle top panel), iAMR (middle bottom panel), and the proportion of abortion-related deaths (bottom panel) by place of residence between 2002 and 2011 in Mexican states, grouped as with less permissive (in dark green) or more permissive (in cyan) in terms of abortion legislation in their criminal code (see Material and Methods). For comparison, trends for the whole Mexican country (all states) are depicted as dotted lines. Right panels show average ratios and proportion of abortion-related deaths for each group (dark green and cyan bars, respectively), and the whole Mexican country (hollow bars). * p<0.05 using Z-test. Abbreviations: iAMR, induced abortion mortality ratio; MMR, maternal mortality ratio; MMRAO, maternal mortality ratio with an abortive outcome.

Description Average mortality ratios in states with more or less permissive abortion legislation between 2002 and 2011. Political maps of Mexican states are shown for average MMR (top panel) and average iAMR (bottom panel) for the 2002-2011 period, indicating whether they exhibit less (orange dots) or more (yellow dots) permissive abortion legislation, in terms of abortion legislation in their criminal code (see Material and Methods). Increasing blue colour indicates an increase in MMR or iAMR, on a quintile scale (see legend of each panel).
