Laws about abortion in your country, practice of abortion (induced abortion), cases of abortion, discussion on abortion?

Varies: The laws about abortion vary from state to state from serious obstacles to very little obstacle. We have a serious problem with these issues in the usa largely from groups stating that god disapproves (even though not in the bible) and that potential life begins at conception therefore anything preventing development is killing. These are mostly very strongly held but erroneous beliefs. ...Read more

Do they perform abortions at free abortion alternative clinics?

Do they perform abortions at free abortion alternative clinics?

I believe "No": These clinics, which are much more numerous than abortion clinics, have historically been run by religious conservatives who will try to persuade you by any means not to have an abortion. They perform no abortions or other medical procedures and are unregulated. Your physician might be a better person to talk with, & there are on-the-level folks who will help you should you choose adoption. ...Read more

Why aren't breast jobs included in health insurance coverage, but abortions are?

Why aren't breast jobs included in health insurance coverage, but abortions are?

Different items: Breast cosmetic surgery is simply that and is under the general rule for insurance plans to not cover cosmetic procedures. Note that they will cover breast reconstruction for injury and loss such as mastectomy for cancer. Some plans cover abortion under the umbrella of women's rights. These plans are aware that abortion is far cheaper than paying for pregnancy to term. But abortion is a choice. ...Read more

Is abortion at 21 weeks gestation available in the state of georgia?

ALMOST IMPOSSBLE : The georgia legislature passed a restrictive abortion bill in may 2012. It states that the only way a woman can get an abortion past 20 weeks is if a doctor and two additional consulting doctors conclude that the abortion is necessary to protect the life of the mother. If you can go to a less restrictive nearby sate, this may be the best way to get the abortion, but you must hurry! ...Read more

I'm a foreign traveler in the us. My us health insurance covers only $5000 for surgeries. Isn't that too little? Wouldn't emergency surgery cost more?

I'm a foreign traveler in the us. My us health insurance covers only $5000 for surgeries. Isn't that too little? Wouldn't emergency surgery cost more?

Yes: In my opinion. That is not an amount that would cover any significant problem. One big expense that you might want to consider is an emergency transport track to a us hospital. That alone can be 10 thousand dollars or more. ...Read more

I'm 35 had a miscarriage in June at 10wks -2 kids living (teens)2 abortions in 99&2000. I'm pregnant again (3 weeks) what chance of miscarrying again?

I'm 35 had a miscarriage in June at 10wks -2 kids living (teens)2 abortions in 99&2000. I'm pregnant again (3 weeks) what chance of miscarrying again?

Maybe 30-40%: Overall, I give over 30 year old pts about a 30% chance of miscarriage( as a round number, AND better to overestimate). Remember, miscarriage is natures own process of clearing not nl pregnancies... so it is a natural thing. Not fun, I grant you. But, although your previous miscarriage ups the chances a little, you still have a majority chance of a successful pregnancy.. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm wondering are unplanned pregnancies the most sacred kind?

That is somewhat: of a generalization. An unplanned pregnancy might be devasting for a young unwed woman without support. On the other hand, it could be a remarkable blessing for someone else. I believe that sacred may be in the eye / heart of the beholder. ...Read more

I'm planning on moving. Where can I find information about high risk pregnancy, hospitals, mfm doctors, nicus?

Medical Society: Most towns have a medical society which is familiar with the local docs or resources. You can also call any local hospital or better yet, ask an l & d nurse whom she'd use. Other options include phone directories, web-sites, or see if your current doc knows someone. Acog also has a doctor "finder" feature which is helpful to find a board-certified doc. Good luck. ...Read more
