|Comment||Thank you for your response. I do not appreciate being told that I should not have had an abortion because of the poor prognosis. It was recommended to me, by a member of the fetal medicine team at the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford, that I terminate the pregnancy due to the prognosis. Do you not think that I would have done anything to keep the child, if there had been any other way? Why would I bring a child into this world, knowing that all they will ever know is suffering and a half-lived life? Assuming they would've survived birth at all. I do not take kindly to that ridiculous comment at all. As for your suggestion about marriage, I fail to see how that has any real validation or relevance to the question I asked. I have already spoken with medical professionals about the risks of becoming pregnant so soon after an abortion, and they have told me that, although there has been little time for recovery, there is no serious threat posed to any pregnancy and certainly no added risk of defects occurring as a result of the termination. I am not sure where you get your information from but it is inaccurate, to say the least. Lastly, telling me "no more abortions" is probably one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in my life. I did not enter into the procedure lightly, nor do I think it is a viable option unless you are given no other choice. The way you made it sound, as if I was using it as some sort of birth control, is absolutely offensive and incredibly moronic. I suggest you learn how to respond with some empathy and actual information to present, rather than just replying with a bunch of opinions and medical nonsense.|
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.
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.
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.
