…’unwantedness’ may be regarded as a major complication of pregnancy, with abortion as the indicated treatment rather than medical management, as would be the case with a wanted pregnancy.

The Real Reason For Late-Term Abortion

anonymous:

Do you not realize that people who are getting abortions at six months are not doing it for fun? That potentially the fetus is dying or dead and that is jeopardizing the mother’s health. Or maybe the fetus has no guarantee of life after birth because of some serious fatal defect. Are you serious that someone who gets an abortion for that reason is a murderer too?

cultureshift:

Sadly, the real reason mothers kill their children at six months and beyond is rooted in pure selfishness. The vast majority of late-term abortions are committed against children with Down syndrome, spina bifida, cleft palate, deformed limbs, and cystic fibrosis, all conditions that millions are currently living with. By the time the amniocentesis or ultrasound diagnosis is complete and the condition is confirmed, these children have reached their late second or third trimester of life. They are killed because they aren’t the model of perfection their parents are seeking.

Surrogate PregnancyWe have made human life a disposable commodity, just like everything else we touch. Parents don’t want the ‘burden’ of caring for a child with special needs, so they take advantage of legalized murder. If it’s illegal to kill a teenager with a disability, why should it be legal to kill a prenatal child with a disability? This has NOTHING to do with the selfish refrain of ‘my body my choice’, and everything to do with targeting the disabled for extermination. Abortion is the ultimate form of ableism.

Planned Parenthood guidance on prenatal care

The key to having a healthy baby is taking good care of your own health. The healthier you are, the stronger you and your baby are likely to be.

We all want to be healthy, but sometimes it is hard to know what we should do. If you are pregnant, or thinking about becoming pregnant, you may have some questions. Here are some of the most common questions we hear women ask about prenatal care.

What is prenatal care?

The first prenatal care visit is usually the longest. The examination is very thorough. You will be asked questions about your medical history. You will also be asked about your partner’s medical history and your family’s medical history. You will have a complete physical exam. Your health care provider will measure your height, weight, blood pressure, breathing, and pulse.

Tell your doctor or nurse if you traveled to a country with Zika or think your partner has Zika. They may test you for Zika and check to see if the baby has it, too.

Planned Parenthood guidance on abortion

Before your abortion, you’ll meet with your nurse, doctor, or health center counselor to talk about whether abortion is the right decision for you, and what your abortion options are. You’ll get an exam and lab tests, and may get an ultrasound to figure out how far into your pregnancy you are.

How do abortions work?

Before your abortion, you’ll get pain medicine to help with cramping. You may be able to get sedation during the abortion. With some kinds of sedation, you’re awake but super relaxed, and with others you are completely asleep. You’ll also get antibiotics to help prevent infections.

Once you’re in the procedure room, there will be a staff member there to help the doctor and support you during the abortion.

During a D&E abortion, the doctor or nurse will:

  • examine your uterus
  • put a speculum in to see into your vagina
  • inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix
  • stretch the opening of your cervix with a serious of dilating rods
  • insert a thin tube through your cervix into your uterus
  • use a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus

Once the procedure is done, you’ll hang out in a recovery area until you feel better and are ready to leave.
