Understanding Abortion

Knowledge is Power

ABORTION INFORMATION

Did you know that 84% of women were not fully informed about abortion before having the procedure?

Are you considering abortion? It is crucial to be informed about the different procedures and the possible risks associated with this life-changing decision.

ABORTION RISKS

Consider the Immediate Risks of Abortion

Some side effects may occur with induced abortion, including abdominal pain & cramping, nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea.

  However, complications may happen in as many as 1 out of 100 early abortions and in about 1 out of every 50 later abortions.

Such complications may include:

Some bleeding after abortion is normal. There is, however, a risk of hemorrhage, especially if the uterine artery is torn. When this happens, a blood transfusion may be required.

Bacteria may get into the uterus from an incomplete abortion resulting in infection. A serious infection may lead to persistent fever over several days and extended hospitalization.

Some fetal parts may not be removed by the abortion. Bleeding and infection may occur. RU486 may fail in up to 1 out of every 20 cases.

The uterus may be punctured or torn by abortion instruments. The risk of this complication increases with the length of the pregnancy. If this occurs, major surgery, including a hysterectomy, may be required.

Suction tubing, curettes, and other abortion instruments may cause permanent scarring of the uterine lining.

The cervix may be cut or torn by abortion instruments.

When the uterus is punctured or torn, there is also a risk that damage will occur to nearby organs such as the bowel and bladder.

An allergic reaction to the anesthesia used during abortion surgery may result in convulsion, heart attack, and, in extreme cases, death.

In extreme cases, other physical complications from abortion including excessive bleeding, infection, organ damage from a perforated uterus, and adverse reaction to anesthesia may lead to death. This complication is very rare and occurs on average, in less than 20 cases per year.

Some women experience an immediate feeling of relief following the termination procedure, but many later find themselves coping with feelings they did not expect. They may have a difficult time talking about these feelings. Some psychologists have labeled these problems as Post Abortion (voluntary termination) Stress.

If you are a Christian, a believer in Christ, a decision to terminate a pregnancy carries with it a conflict in your spiritual life. The Bible is very clear about God’s love and concern for each of us from the time we are conceived. It’s important for you to know how God saw you before you were born and how He sees your unborn child. God cares about this choice you are making. Every human is created in His image and for a purpose. No life is a mistake.

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.
— Jeremiah 1:5

You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day passed.
— Psalm 139:15-16

Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life and your descendants might live! Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey Him and commit yourself to Him, for He is your life.
— Deuteronomy 30:19-20

ABORTION PILL FAQ'S

The abortion pill is the most common name for a chemical abortion. It can also be referred to as a medical, self-managed, or DIY abortion.  This is a combination of two different drugs (taken in two separate doses). This is NOT the morning-after pill.

It is usually taken between 4-6 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period.

The first pill is mifepristone used to block the hormone progesterone produced by your body stopping your pregnancy from progressing. Without progesterone, the embryo eventually dies over the next several days. The second is misoprostol, this pill causes an unnatural opening of the uterus, resulting in cramping and heavy bleeding expelling the embryo and uterine contents from the uterus.

Note: The abortion pill is not an option for women with certain medical conditions or if the pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus.

It is illegal to have the abortion pills shipped to Texas.

FDA Warning on Abortion Pills By Mail: Do Not Buy Mifeprex Over the Internet
You should not buy Mifeprex (mifepristone) over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health. Mifeprex has special safety restrictions on how it is distributed to the public. Also, drugs purchased from foreign Internet sources are not the FDA-approved versions of the drugs, and they are not subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls or FDA inspection of manufacturing facilities

Are You Considering Abortion?

Here’s why you should schedule an appointment

It is crucial that you see a medical provider, in person, before choosing to take the abortion pills, and here’s why…

  • An Ultrasound will determine how far along you are. Your baby may be older than you think. In this situation, a medical abortion could be especially dangerous to you as well.
  • Additionally, an Ultrasound will confirm whether your pregnancy is located in the uterus.
    • If your pregnancy is ectopic (progressing in the wrong part of your body), you will require immediate medical treatment.
  • The FDA strongly cautions against the use of mifepristone obtained over the Internet. You will be ignoring the safeguards in place to protect you. Citation
  • One in three pregnancies will miscarry naturally, if you have already miscarried or are in the process, there is no reason for you to put yourself through the stress of contemplating abortion. Citation

 

Before you make your final decision, get all the information you can about each of the choices. In spite of the intense pressure, you may feel, carefully weigh each option based on your information, not on your emotion. Use your head to guide your heart. You, more than anyone else, will live with the outcome of your decision.
