My family supported my choice, although before I went through what I did I don't think most of them would have been pro-choice. I was about 2,000+ miles away from all of that support group though. XDH literally left me at the clinic and I don't think he came back until they called him to let him know I was done. Amongst other things he decided to host a New Years party at our house a couple days later and party it up with friends while I laid in bed on those lovely meds that make your uterus contract again. Fun stuff.


Quoting jojo_star:

My family, besides my sil, were all very supportive and wonderful. I was a single mom, the father wasn't in the picture at all (I honestly had no idea who the father was). But yes, everyone I had contact with was amazing from the second I walked in the door. 

Quoting chickieboom:

I didn't really have any support when I had mine. My family was on the other side of the country and let's just say that the whole experience led to the demise of my first marriage. I still don't really know anyone in real life that has had one. But I know from my own experience that everyone in the women's clinic that performed mine we're very kind and made sure I understood exactly what I was doing and how the procedure was going to be done. They cared more about me than my XDH did...





Quoting jojo_star:

Lied to about their abortion? Unless it's an illegal clinic, they aren't lying. Just because they use actual facts and explain what an abortion is in medical, factual terms does not mean they are lying. I've never met a single woman who was lied to about what an abortion was. The only lies regarding abortion I heard were told to me when I went to Birthright. Pro-life centers often have contracts with adoption agencies, so it is in their interest to procure babies. I don't care what your view point is, I care that you are passing off an organization that does not care about women, but just cares about getting all babies born and spreads lies left and right as a legitimate resource. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

What about all the women lied too about their abortion? Because abortion is a profitable business makes 500 dollars an abortion. Of course they sale abortion why wouldn't they? Pro life centers make no money what so ever for services. We could go back and forth all day. There will always be someone who disagrees with what there opposing view does.








Quoting jojo_star:

Yes, but the majority of Birth rights are like that, I know, I've dealt with many women who went there. Yes, some had a good result. Most did not, because they don't do anything for the women past the point of getting a legal abortion. No, not all abortion clinics are legit, but the majority are. I've never run into a single birth right or other pregnancy resource center that wasn't all about adoption, very, very anti-abortion and cruel about it, and stopped caring or helping as soon as the fetus was safe. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Um ok as all abortion clinics are not legit. There are bad apples in everything. I can only speak for what I have done and seen. In 2 different states.











Quoting jojo_star:

I've been to Birthright as a client. I know what they do. It's great that your office is so good, but most are not, and that is based off my personal experience (and no, I received no compassion when I decided to abort, and was treated awfully), and also that of some friends I've made through the years, who were sucked in by Birth rights biggest lie: Options. 

Quoting isaiahbellamom:

Lol see I try to be logical and think hey maybe even though I don't agree with abortion this could help women.









actually I am a former client and volunteer of birthright. I nor anyone I've worked with has lied to women showed graphic pictures or were rude or mean. I have seem women buy groceries pay rent etc. I've seen compassion even when they choose to abort.









I myself have brought groceries and even babysit for a escort so she could get a legit job. One of my good friends is a woman I counseled 3 years ago. To this day we are still great friends. I threw her baby shower and was with her when she decided to have her son.














I have seen women give these women respect and ultimley no one can choose for anyone.









so you can listen to those who obviously are biased or someone who has witnessed what Birthright does.














Quoting Glitchtastic:

Thanks. I had no idea and a Googling turned up little.

Quoting jojo_star:

It's an anti-choice organization that delights in 'educating' pregnant women about abortion with lies. 

Quoting Glitchtastic:

What is Birthright? Just curious.

If you are considering abortion, please contact Birthright.  Killing your baby is not the answer.

Who is talking about killing their baby? That is pretty sick. 

And yes, abortion is sometimes an answer. It was for me, it has been the answer for many, many women, and this resource is a wonderful tool that will help more women make the right choice for themselves. And we've already covered the birth right lie.

Idk about birthright, but there ARE proliferation resources out there that provide women with alternatives to abortion, as well as reproductive healthcare. The medical info is accurate too. One is called birth choice health clinics.

I'm sure there are some out there that are honest and help women, but none of the ones that I have had to deal with, and in my job and volunteer work I've had the misfortune of dealing with several ones, along with personal experience and that of friends, and I'd just always rather to go PP and I recommend PP to everyone that needs help, because I know they will get honest information about every option. 


Yeah I know what you mean, lol. There are MANY cpcs that, while well-meaning, do NOT give out accurate info. I also think there is a need in the pro-life (my side, though you've probably already guessed :) is recognizing that women DO need access to contraception and reproductive healthcare. My guess is the reason the other lady put the birthright info up, is that there is a good number (no clue though, how many truly) women who obtain abortions because of lack of support, resources, and perhaps even a way out of scary/ abusive relationships so abortion seems the only viable option. If both sides worked together to try and find common ground, and address root causes of abortion, perhaps more good would be accomplished. Im not sure, btw, whether it was birth choice, but there IS a pro-life health clinic that uses sources for medical info from some pro-choice resource, the guttmacher institute. That gave them more credibility in my view.

What's sick is killing an innocent life (the baby, and yes, if it).  Many women have found ways to justify it.  I'm sorry for your situation.  Do a little research though, the whole "pro-choice" founders (ones that came up with those terms) actually laughed and joked about it, and knew they had to find a way to make killing a baby acceptable so they could get rid of undesirables.  They made up the whole "pro-choice", "It's a woman's body" crap because they knew it would rile people up and make them feel justified.  You think it solved your problems.  What about your baby's?  How did his or her problems get solved?  Abortion doesn't keep a woman from being a mother, it just makes her the mother of a dead baby.  I think it's a sick world when we feel that taking life is a "wonderful tool".  I've worked for Birthright and see firsthand the wonderful, wonderful work they do, and they help they provide mothers and babies, both before AND AFTER birth.

My situation? What do you know about my situation? It isn't killing a baby. It's terminating an embryo, preventing the creation of a baby. I have done a lot of research, and I know the origins of pp, the pro-choice side, etc. What they were isn't what they are now. It is a woman's body. It did solve my problems. My baby didn't have any problems, it didn't have brain function, thought, or feeling, so it can't have problems. PP provides prenatal care, counseling, and Post partum care as well, and all without trying to force women into a choice. I am the mother of a dead baby, you are right about that. But not the pregnancy I aborted, and not my two early miscarriages. My dead baby is my daughter who was born sleeping at 39 weeks. That is a dead baby. Planned parenthood and this resource that is mentioned in this post are both wonderful tools and resources. I've been on the receiving end of Birthrights 'wonderful, wonderful work'. Wonderful isn't even close to how I would describe my experience there.

You can call it whatever you want. It was a grouping of cells. What would have been sick was if I kept the baby and went through pregnancy and birth unable to afford to feed another mouth. That would have been sick. So I either pick which kid I already have should go hungry or myself because the medical care would have been through the roof. Makes perfect sense.
