Abort73 exists because abortion exists. And because a deep and accurate understanding of abortion does not exist. If you’ll invest a few moments in serious, objective reflection, we’d like to demonstrate why elective abortion is immoral and unjust.
If you are thinking about having an abortion, please consider the case against abortion, particularly the pages on prenatal development, abortion techniques, and the difficult, but sobering page of real-life abortion pictures. Then read the stories of the countless women who have gone before you.

My aunt and this nurse did everything in their power to make me feel like I wasn't going to survive and neither would my child. After almost three hours, I started believing them and not in myself. I took a pill and sat in a waiting room with other girls who had taken the pill. It was horrible. I sat there crying, knowing that the room was filled with dying babies. I wanted to take my decision back. After what seemed like an eternity in that room, they took me to the back room where the "extraction" was to take place.
