S/o the other post. If you've had an abortion, do you agree? Is it like giving birth? Did you feel good/fine/ok/normal afterwards?

I read that article. She made some unusual comments, but if that's how she felt, that's how she felt.

Giving birth was nothing like an abortion, at least in my opinion. Felt nothing like it, especially pain wise. Birth was much more painful. And I felt great after my abortion. Minmal, if any, physical pain, and emotionally, I was fine.

I wouldn't think so, considering at the end of one you get a live human being and at the end of the other... you just don't.

She never had a child, so how would she know anyhow??

It was painful, and felt like extreme waves in my stomach. It wasn't pleasant at all

Giving birth wasn't very pleasant either, but it did not feel like an abortion

I just do not assume they're the same. Many different factors in play.

I had one, for medical reasons. It was awful, but it was likely so difficult because I had complications and had to have a D&C and antibiotics afterwards.

It was still nowhere near as painful as childbirth. YMMV.

I had a medical abortion (the three pills) it felt like a very painful period mixed with dehydration. I felt dizzy and sick to my stomach. I don't think it's anything like giving birth. I felt dirty, sick, sad, alone, mean, heartless and more after having an abortion. When I gave birth I felt pain but it was worth it, I felt honored, proud, happy, every good feeling and love. So I think it's very different.
