Abortion may seem like the simplest answer to an unintended pregnancy, but there are no easy answers in life. Maybe you don’t want to have an abortion but feel it is your only choice. You aren’t alone; many women initially feel this way and consider having an abortion because they do not have the support or resources they need to have their baby. People might even be pressuring you to have an abortion you don’t necessarily want. You may feel you have no other choice – but you do. Birthright can help you explore the reasons you’re considering abortion and possibly offer alternative options. We understand any choice seems difficult and complicated right now, though. A question to ask yourself is, would you make a different choice if your circumstances were different? Birthright is here to help you change your circumstance and assist you. Please get in touch with us today to understand your options and opportunities.
What Is An Abortion?
Abortion is an elective procedure that terminates a viable pregnancy located in the uterus (the only place an embryo may grow). Drugs or surgery are used to carry this process out, and it does come with risks. Depending on the abortion procedure, risks may include:
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
Other complications that could arise are:
- Perforation of the uterus
- Damage to the cervix
- Scar tissue on the uterine wall
