Pregnant Women Who Experience PTSD from Previous Surgical Abortions

Pregnant Women Who Experience PTSD from Previous Surgical Abortions

i) Female from Virginia, USA

My family hates the man I am with and if they were to find out I was pregnant, they would kill him. They would tell me I was an embarrassment to them. They would make me have an abortion.

I have a friend who had one, she told me all about it, the pain, the way the doctors were and I can not do it. The way the just suck it out of us as if it was not every there. When my friend was done with the abortion, the doctor looked at her and said, "okay, you are no longer pregnant", as if that is what she wanted. Her parents made her have the abortion because she was 17 and they were "too old to raise a baby." I don't want to be told I have to do it. However, I can not have a baby right now, because I am in college and I need to be concentrating on my school work. Plus I still live at home, they would kick me out.

ii) Female from The United Kingdom

Had 2 abortions before this,had one medical abortion(abortion pills)which i reacted very badly to and one surgical abortion which was not too bad,they cost me all my savings of 700 or 1500 dollars.I can't afford to have another medical/surgical abortion and dont want to.I ask for the information so that i can let go of this pregnancy naturally an then learn to be strong and only make love to men that i am in love with and willing to have a child with.

I always knew there must be natural ways to prevent and to misscarry but it is so hidden by laws and legislations that ive never been able to find it in the past.I do not have a bank account as i am paid in cash and i live in England hence the reason i cannot pay you,however if you send me the information i would be most grateful and may be able to offer my service in another way?
