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.

It took me a while to get over it. I couldn't talk to anyone about it because I never told anyone. And when I spoke to my boyfriend about it, he put it all behind him. We grieved at different times. He grieved at first, and I grieved long after. Every time I see a baby, I wonder how my son would have looked... Click here to read this story in its entirety.
