Is hating the father of your unborn baby reason enough to go ahead and have an abortion?

Is hating the father of your unborn baby reason enough to go ahead and have an abortion?

Agree with Dr Pappas: Additionally, if you have so much hate for the father that the hate extends to someone who is not even here yet, then you might benefit from a counseling with someone with whom you can discuss and sort through these very powerful feelings. The person you hate is unaffected. The person most affected by feelings like these is the person doing the hating. A counselor can help. Good luck. ...Read more

How could people say that abortion is not killing anything?

How could people say that abortion is not killing anything?

Wrong forum: This is not the place to talk about questions that are basically about religion and on which people will never agree. There there is life, there is death -- and there are people who are so respectful of life they will not swat a mosquito. I honor this though I disagree. I'd also suggest that your life will be happier if you not seek out arguments that you know will not get settled amicably. ...Read more

Number of abortions: Sterilization must be a matter of individual choice. Forced sterilization based on political-"medical" considerations were common in the early 20th century, until judged to be an unconstitutional infringement on women's autonomy. Multiple abortions occur for many reasons-- repeated coercive sex, contraceptive failures, genetic defects, and life circumstances. None justify sterilization. ...Read more

How long after a medical abortion at 8w 5d, does it take the fetus to pass and come out?

24 to 72 hours: Once the 2nd of the two abortion pills are taken, contractions with fetal passage should begin in 24 to 72 hours. If that does not occur and the 2nd pill was not swallowed, but held between the check and gum, then you need to see your abortion MD for another ultrasound examination to determine fetal passage or not and the next treatment step as needed. ...Read more

I did an abortion but didn't bleed. The u/s showed 5weeks and 6days fetus and no heartbeat. Heartbeat would still be possible at 7 weeks and 4days?

No: If you had surgical (d;c)
abortion the pregnancy was missed. If you used Cytotec (misoprostol) to induce termination it was unsuccessful.

Isn't it true that when women have an abortion in the first trimester the fetus isn't really developed. Yet?

Depends: This depends on when you believe life starts. Some say it is at conception when the egg and sperm join. Some say it is at about 24 weeks pregnant when the baby has a chance at surviving if it were born. Others say it is not until birth. This is a true ethical debate. ...Read more

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Can my aborted fetus have normal karyotype but have cystic hygroma&above normal N.T at the same time? Did it deserve that doc decide abortion?

Certainly: A fetus can have normal karyotype and still have any one of a large variety of really bad congenital defects. That means many bad birth defects happen in babies who have normal karyotypes. As we each walk our journeys in life, we must make the best decisions we can, with the information we have at hand... people make the best call they can, and then move on, to the promises that the future holds. ...Read more

I was 12 wk preg. Fetus had cystic hygroma&above normal N.T&generalized edema, my Dr. Decided abortion, was it the right decision?

12 wks fetal hydrops: That early in pregnancy, edema is hydrops, generalized; an increased nuchal translucency will be seen, which later in pregnancy may turn into a cystic hygroma, unless septation was already present--as seen in severely affected 45X (Turner syndrome) fetuses. Many other potential causes, but prognosis of hydrops this early is dismal. An amniocentesis prior to abortion allows chromosomal analysis. ...Read more
