Are there any negative health repercussions, physically speaking, to having an abortion?

No: A single abortion performed by a qualified md in a qualified facility should not affect your health or your ability to conceive in the future when you wish to. Use a reliable method of pregnancy prevention to prevent multiple abortions as multiple abortions increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy and can affect your fertility.

No: Other than for the risks of any procedure (e.g. Bleeding, infection, injury to adjacent organs, etc...) or pill/medication (e.g. Side/adverse affects), I am not aware of any.
