  • The medical term for miscarriage is generally spontaneous abortion. Missed abortion may be used to define a specific kind of miscarriage (where the baby stops growing but the body does not miscarry immediately.) Abortion is the term used medically to define ANY interruption of a pregnancy, natural or not. Therapeutic abortion or elective abortion are usually the terms used to desbribe an abortion by choice.
