Is there a safe natural way to terminate a pregnancy?

I am not aware of...: One in about six pregnancies abort spontaneously, usually early in pregnancy (first trimester). Elective abortion/termination should be done under supervision, especially later in pregnancy, as bleeding and rate of infections tend to increase etc..

Are there any safe natural home remedies that will help terminate a pregnancy?  I'm about 4 weeks along.

No: Fortunately, America is beyond that (that was before modern medicine and before getting rid of laws against inducing miscarriage). Any woman who needs to induce a miscarriage (easier to say abortion), such as if her early fetus has a genetic defect or other significant birth defect, can get help from her Ob-Gyn doctor. The doctor has good reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more

Is Skinny Fiber safer to take during a normal pregnancy? It helps reduce hunger speed up matbolisim and it's all natural ingredients I'm 16 weeks

I am assuming you might be overweight already and the best way to control weight during pregnancy is to eat a healthy diet that avoids simple carbohydrates (sugar). Lots of veggies and lean protein are best. Also limit your complex carbs. ...Read more
