I need to terminate my pregnancy due to many personal complications. Not a decision I have made lightly I must add. Has anyone else been through a termination? I’m about 8 weeks. I’m really scared. more scared than Ive ever been before.
What is it like? How long does it take? What are the proceedures.
I’ve got an appointment on monday with the clinic to discuss everything anf have a scan – but i’d like to be prepared.
I’d appreciate any information offered. Please dont think Im a horrible person.
Many thanks heidiSeptember 23, 2006 at 12:22 am #11880Anonymous
First of all, I absolutely do not think you are a horrible person because you are considering abortion. But also please know that I am opposed to abortion and that is where my reply will be from. I know you are young and many young women have abortions. But if I were you, I would try to find an older woman who had an abortion, like at least 10 years ago, and ask her how she is doing today. The reason I say this is because if you just ask young women about having it, most of them will say it’s no big deal. That’s because research shows over and over (and it’s out there and easy to find if you just do a simple google search on phrases like "abortion complications") that having an abortion stays with you for years and you don’t realize the full consequences of it until, like 10 years later, when you have to seek medical treatment because you can’t get pregnant when you want to, or because you have breast cancer (they’re proven to be linked, but you won’t hear about it in the media) or because you are depressed, or because your marriage is messed up. It’s not a simple procedure that is over quickly. You never forget this baby and the long term guilt consequences are serious and frightening. Yes, choosing life for your baby means a complete life change, but the positive aspects of making room in your life (or someone else’s by adoption) for a child far outweigh the negative aspects of abortion that you will have for literally decades to come. 95% of women who’ve had an abortion regret it. Please reconsider.September 23, 2006 at 2:33 am #11887lilangel2oo6
