Question
i am pregnant but is is an ectopic pregnancy. can i abort an ectopic pregnancy?

Answer
Hello, Phoenix,

Did a doctor tell you that you have an ectopic pregnancy? If not, how do you know that's what it is?

Trying to abort an ectopic pregnancy on your own would most likely kill you. You need surgery. You need it right away. Please go to a doctor and ask him to verify you have an ectopic pregnancy and take the necessary steps to treat you.

All methods of abortion are very dangerous. You deserve better. Don't even consider abortion in the future.

Please let me know how it turns out. Please take care of yourself.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
