|From what I have read, your risk does not significantly increase until you've had nearly 20 abortions.|
This is true. Most of these numbers come from Romania where it is typical for women to have multiple abortions. Women in the UK and US do not have anywhere near the number of abortions Romanian women do so reporting the risk of abortion in either location is usually just a scare tactic to try and keep women from obtaining an abortion.
Is it a risk? Yes, there is risk with any medical procedure but abortion in industrialized nations is the safest medical procedure you can undergo. Is it as big of a risk as some people try to imagine? Absolutely .n.o.t.
Not that I'm tarnishing Romania with a bad brush, but I would imagine that medical quality and safety there is not as good as in the UK or the USA, so perhaps that could be another factor.
|But I guess what I mean is if a woman who had a very rebellious past had, let's say, six abortions in her younger years and is now ready to have a baby, are the risks high?|
|I wouldn't have thought so and I hate the way abortions are portrayed to the public as unsafe, life-threatening operation which can "mess up your insides". I do believe some people would be very surprised to know that birth is more health-provoking.|
I didn't give a whole lot of background, my bad, but I wasn't intending to tarnish romania or romanian women either. At one time they had a stupid and brutal dictator who outlawed abortion (which it still occurred, surprise, surprise) and also contraception because he wanted to build up the army and economy and he thought the best way would be to increase the number of people (like I said, stupid). So, for them, abortions were a lot easier to access than birth control because it was absolutely being controlled by the government and abortions could be excused as miscarriages. This dictator also instituted a "pregnancy police," a force of men who investigated claims of pregnancy to ensure that the women did not self-induce (compulsory and monthly pregnancy testing was required for most public jobs). Of course, these draconian measures never did meet his goals for the labor force and economy and as a result the abortion rates (and maternal death rates) skyrocketed. Romanian women, though, began to see an abortion as a right of passage and also a cleansing ritual for their body. Even though the dictator was overthrown and birth control is now widely available, these women still have abortions rates that are four to six times higher than the US and the UK. So, denying birth control does have an affect on the abortion rates!
Parts of russia, too, have high abortion rates because for the longest time that .w.a.s the only birth control they had access to.
No. She should be fine as long as she did not experience a complication with her earlier abortion and as long as the abortions were performed in a safe, sterile location. If she experienced complications earlier (very, very rare), she needs to tell her doctor when she's thinking of becomming pregnant so that they can decide on the best course of action to ensure a healthy, safe pregnancy. Even if she did have a complication, it does not mean that she cannot become pregnant or carry a pregnancy to term. Many women who have multiple abortions are shocked even more when they become pregnant the second time because they, too, had been misled on abortion's safety.
The chances really are nil until she nears 20 or more abortions.
People are surprised when I tell them that labor and delivery are 11 times more dangerous than obtaining an abortion and that the chance of infertility following delivery is much, much more than the chance of infertility because of an abortion. They think that because they believe abortion is evil (even for those who believe it's a necessary evil) that it therefore must cause harm but it simply doesn't. When it is legal, safe, and regulated, it is the safest procedure you can undergo. As long as you aren't relying on outdated statistics, the numbers tell the real story far better than anyone ever could.
|YOU HAD MANY ABORTIONS? WHY PLAY GOD THIS TIME? IF YOU DONT GET PREGNANT, AND WANT TO BE. BLAME YOURSELF. SORRY IF IM RUDE, BUT IS THIS A GAME, WHICH BABY LIVES? THIS IS THE SADDEST THING I READ.....
you had many abortions? Why play god this time? If you dont get pregnant, and want to be. Blame yourself. Sorry if im rude, but is this a game, which baby lives? This is the saddest thing I read.....
I agree. Why abort so many times. Because it is her choice? Are there not any other choices? What about the baby's choice. What about adoption? I don't understand how a person can just keep killing babies? Because it is her choice seems like a cope out ot me and pretty sad.

|I did not feel like having 3 babies, so I had 3 abortions.
Pregnancy is a healthcare decision, pregnancy chnages a womans body and health status, and I chose not to have my health or body change.
|Yes, my husband was the man that I slept with, and in turn became pregnant from.
First and foremost, I would never date a man that had children, or one that wishes to have children in the future, which makes things easier in the long run.
Communication is key. I would never date a pro life man, or a man that wants children, so it was never of an issue.
This is why so many women and men get into trouble, because they do not find people with similar views in life.
My husband was 100% okay with my abortions. It was never a question of 'if' I would have an abortion, but 'when'.
I discuss these issues before I even had sex with him.
|Abortion is not an easy decision and I don't understand how the pro-choice people can spew such hate and call themselves good Christians at the same time|
