Abortion–A Quick Fix? Listen to This Story….

28 Jul

From Mochamusings.com

Let me tell you my story. At 15 I got pregnant.  I was happy and terrified at the same time.  I couldn’t believe I had a baby growing inside me, but I knew I was way too young.  Abortion seemed like my only option.  I couldn’t imagine going through with the pregnancy and giving my baby away.  And my worse fear… my family finding out!  What would they think of me?  I’m a good girl. I go to school. I got a job. And, I cause very little trouble. I tried to tell my mom and even a few older cousins. But, I would shake profusely every time.  I never got the courage. So, at 15, my boyfriend and I had a friend take us to the clinic.  What a memory…

The place is packed with young girls and very few, if any, parents.  It was like an assembly line. First up: a clipboard full of paperwork. I had no idea what to put because I knew very little.  Next up: payment window. Never once did anyone review the paper work that I faked my way through or even attempt to ask for ID. Really! Now it’s my turn to go back.

    I don’t know where this person went to but it was not my experience. I found myself having to terminate a pregnancy due to a medical problem. The place I went to was very caring, nurturing & performed the procedure to the letter. They took a pregnancy test and an internal ultrasound to confirm the progression of the pregnancy, and then had me see a counselor to see whether or not I wanted the procedure BEFORE they did it. I opted for a twilight anesthetic that put me to sleep, and the anesthesiologist gently talked me through the procedure. After it was completed, I was escorted to a recovery room where nurses monitored my blood pressure, gave me juice & crackers for strength and just stayed with me if I needed to talk while recovering. After I recovered enough to go home, the nurse gave me aftercare instructions and would not let me go until my ride picked me up. I cannot believe fully this poster’s story because the clinics have to confirm completely how far along a pregnancy is before performing an abortion. I think this is just another propaganda lie from the Pro-Life Movement. Moreover, depending on the state, a 15 year old cannot get an abortion without parental consent (did she go to an illegal abortionist?!)
