I see a whole lot of people talking very eloquently about the physical and biological aspects of abortion.

LOL_ not at all. I miscarried my first pregnancy and had a D&C, well- I had 2 because I was hemorrhaging due to placental retention- whole nuther chapter).
Anyhoo- wanted seperately to try to conceive again, and was told by OB/GYN that I SHOULD start TTCing 2-3 cycles after the D&C as studies had shown the uterine lining at that point after the D&C to be optimal for conception. And- you guessed it! I conceived the first time trying after that 3rd cycle! Conceived our 3rd time a couple of years later, and again the very first cycle we TTCed on my 4th pregnancy Miscarried my 4th pregnancy, and had D&C - and conceived and birthed 2 more kids after that

Just thought since you like anecdotal evidence that mine should hold some weight here too- unless you have peer-reviewed studies and data that says otherwise?

She's teetering on the edge of being disrespectful and making profound assumptions.

Maybe if Kanye West's mother would have seen what a boorish clod her son turned out to be in advance would have aborted? Now THAT is the kind of predicitor we need out there....

The November 15, 1984 edition of American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology contains an article entitled, "Postabortal pelvic infection associated with Chlamydia trachomatis and the influence of humoral immunity". The article notes that, "pelvic infection is a common and serious complication of induced abortion and has been reported in up to 30% of all cases." The following risks are associated with such a condition: "future infertility, chronic abdominal pain, or ectopic pregnancy".

The April 20, 1984 edition of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly reports that between 1970 and 1981, the time period in which abortion was legalized, the frequency of ectopic pregnancies increased by 300%.

The May 15, 1983 edition of American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology contains an article entitled, "The relationship between induced abortion and outcome of subsequent pregnancies". The article contains the following conclusion: "Complications such as bleeding in the first and third trimesters, abnormal presentations and premature rupture of the membranes, abruptio placentae, fetal distress, low birth weight, short gestation, and major malformations occurred more often among women with a history of two or more induced abortions." The article also identified a "twofold to threefold increased risk of spontaneous abortion for women with two or more previous induced abortions".



Abortion And Infertility
Abortion and infertility are directly linked, as is increased risk for breast cancer and cervical cancer often caused by the hpv penile wart virus. This term refers to any premature expulsion of a human fetus, whether naturally spontaneous, as in a miscarriage, or artificially induced, as in a surgical or chemical abortions. Today, the most common usage of the term "abortions" applies to artificially induced abortions. For women under 18 with no previous pregnancies, having abortions after the 8th week increases the risk of breast cancer 800%. Abortion and infertility are directly linked, as is increased risk for breast cancer and cervical cancer often caused by the hpv penile wart virus.
