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.

He used to touch my belly, saying his baby was there and making jokes about it. He looked happy but worried. We had the pills, and when I was in the 7th week, I told him we had to do it now.
