  • As disgusting as I find killing an unborn baby I will tell you that my sister has had two. Then she concieved twins naturally. A boy and a girl.

    She miscarried them at 18 weeks. They are unsure if the miscarriage was related to the previous abortions but there is speculation because they believe there is some damage to her cervix and lower uterus from the abortion.

    That doesn't mean you will miscarry though and it doesn't mean you can't get pregnant.

    Good luck I guess...I hope this baby is more important than the last. :-/

  • I don't personally but I know as long as it was done correctly and you aren't using it as birth control you should be fine.

  • My sister had both of her kids just fine after hers... it had been about 10 years I think.

  • It depends on the type of abortion you had. If anything went into the cervix scarring is a concern sometimes. It's unlikely, though. Good luck!

  • i think that after 12 years you should be fine, how far along were you when you aborted, the earlier you did it the less damage there is to your body. besides, you never know until you try

  • I think it's really interesting that the person who wants to be all judgmental had to do it anonymously. I bet she'd be surprised to know that I am actually pro-life too and that since the abortion I had over a decade ago I've become very involved in helping women who are either in the process of making/avoiding that decision or are in recovery from having done so.

    Many women regret abortions - and many of them are performed on young girls and women at the insistence of every authority figure that they know and trust.

    It really saddens me when someone who is trying to come out of that darkness is continually pushed back into it by the cruelty of people who fail to take the time to understand and love their fellow man - especially the ones who claim they are Christian. Christ would be ashamed!
