No: There is no evidence to show that abortion causes or worsens cervical dysplasia. Most dysplasia is caused by the human papilloma virus (hpv), which is a sexually-transmitted virus.

Abortion dysplasia: Abortion is not related to cervical dysplasia, but having multiple sexual partners or a partner with a sexually transmitted disease are. Any pregnancy means the woman's partner didn't use a condom and would explain the risk of dysplasia.
