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.

AS A SENIOR IN COLLEGE, becoming a mother was not a part of my agenda. My boyfriend and I had lofty dreams, goals, and aspirations. We were prepared planners who knew the importance of higher education and were grounded in...
I’m 17 years old and a senior in high school. When I first found out I was pregnant, I was scared but soon became excited to be a mom. But the father freaked out. I was with him for about a year. He was my first. I wasn't expecting to hear the things he said to me, like “I hope you and the baby die,” and he wasn’t going to help or be apart of the child's life. I knew I couldn't care for a child on my own. It was impossible. A few weeks went by, and I let him talk me into the abortion. Do I regret it? Yes and no. Mentally, I know it was the right thing, so I could go to school and become something in life— and have a family when I’m ready, but my heart can't let it go. I think about the abortion a lot and see lots of happy moms. If I could go back and listen to myself and not him, I would have kept the baby and been the best mom I could be. If you’re getting an abortion, make sure it is what you want and no one else, or you'll be like me—losing it every day and always upset. I wish I could go back to that day, but I can't and won't ever be able to. I just hope god forgives me and my unborn child does too. Getting an abortion was the worst experience of my life.
