Considering abortion? Your health and safety are important.
Q: Should I be concerned about having an abortion?
Abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women, is a life changing event with significant physical, emotional and spiritual consequences. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they had been told all of the facts about abortion.
Q: What are the health risks to having an abortion?
Risks of any surgical abortion may include hemorrhage, infection, infertility, and complications with future pregnancies (i.e. incompetent cervix). There may be other risks for you including emotional complications. It is best to seek medical advice before proceeding with any type of surgical procedure.
Q: Will having an abortion increase my chances of getting breast cancer?
A 1994 study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found: “Among women who had been pregnant at least once, the risk of breast cancer in those who had experienced an induced abortion was 50% higher than among other women.”
Q: Can I have a baby and still live my life?
You may see this unplanned pregnancy as a major roadblock in your life. Thankfully, there are other routes that can get you back on track. Be encouraged to know that many women in the same situation have found the necessary help and resources to make positive choices and realize their dreams.
Q: If I have an abortion, will my baby feel pain?
The answer to this question will depend on the stage of fetal development.
It has been determined that at about eight weeks a fetus can feel pain. It is at this point in development that the following necessary structures are in place: sensory nerves (which detect pain), the thalamus (the part of the brain that receives pain messages from sensory nerves), and motor nerves (which are directed by the brain to pull away from the hurt).
In addition, by 13 1/2 to 14 weeks, the entire body surface, except for the back and the top of the head, are sensitive to pain.
