One of the reasons a woman may opt for abortion is to be free from the burden of raising a(nother) child. Time, circumstances, finances, and emotional health may leave them unprepared to consider a pregnancy.

Others may feel pregnancy is an inconvenience. Younger women may consider that they haven't completed their education and realize they still have their whole lives ahead of them. Some feel it will take too much to give a child up for adoption; plus, they are not willing to carry the child for 9 months and go through delivery.

Women who give in to the idea of abortion are often pressured into it by their partners. In many cases, these women find it difficult to choose the life of their child over their partner.

Whatever the reason, abortion should never be entered into without careful thought. The procedures can be dangerous, even life-threatening, and emotionally devastating.

I hate when people rag on abortion. I'm 14, and got preggers at 12. I aborted the baby, and it was the right thing to do. I didn't experince any wasn't like I loved it. #1

"The procedures can be dangerous, even life-threatening, and emotionally devastating." Abortions, when done at a doctor's office by a qualified medical professional, are generally extremely safe. This website is giving you false information because they want to convince you to give your child up for adoption instead of have an abortion. Go to Planned Parenthood, get some reading material, learn about the truth of your options, and make your OWN decision! #2

I think that if you don't want the baby then you should probably give the baby a chance and at least give it up for adoption #4

Planned Parenthood is not the best place to get info when faced with an unexpected pregnancy. The article is right that abortions can be dangerous, even life-threatening. And even if you have one that goes perfectly, they are, without a doubt, emotionally devastating. Just keep exploring this site for info. There is always another option than ending a pregnancy. #5

Abortion is a terrible event. It is the murdering of the innocent unborn and the mothers are also ruined by it. #6
