One post is asking for reasons that you would abort, but if you have aborted, why?

I was 16, had a child, didn't want another one, couldn't afford another one, didn't want to and couldn't have handled a pregnancy. So I had an abortion, and I've never regretted it.

I've never aborted. I'd never kill an innocent baby even if I was raped or if it had down's syndrome.

The fetus was in my fallopian tube.

1- not a fetus for 2 reasons. The cells would not grow normally in that space, it wouldn't be more than a mass of cells. You need to be 9 weeks for a fetus, before that its an embryo and a tube would rupture long before then.
2- it's not called an abortion when its a tubal since its in no way a viable pregnancy.

Well then my OB had the report wrong because he classified it as a fetus.
Abortion means to end something. The pregnancy was ended.

So when a woman has a miscarriage she aborted her baby? No.

The medical term is spontaneous abortion.

Yes actually a miscarriage is documented as a spontenous abortion.

So you think it means your answer applies to this post? Obviously the op meant when there were other options. Your embryo was not going to live and you would die without the procedure. That has nothing to do with deciding to abort. Plenty of women, including myself proudly would never have an abortion but have had tubal pregnancies.
