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 spent three months completely oblivious to what was going on. I didn't expect anything to be wrong. I didn't even think I could get pregnant. I ended my sophomore year, went to the beach with my friends, and had a great summer. At the end of July, I went to a work thing for a week and came back home feeling sick. It took me a week to go to the hospital. When I did they told me I was pregnant. I had recently turned 20, wasn't with the guy anymore, and had so many issues that a baby couldn't be another. I found the money somehow, even borrowing some from family after lying about unpaid bills. I'm not religious, so that wasn't a reservation. I'm not exactly an emotional person, so that wasn't it either. A week later, after the abortion was all said and done, I went on with my life. Eight months later, I don't know what my life is. I feel empty. It could be from the baby. It could be from things around me. I told my sister; I'm sure she hates me. I told my best friend. She says she doesn't hate me, but I'll give it time. She will learn to hate me but to lie.

It is unjust and inaccurate to classify certain human beings as “non-persons.”
All abortion methods violate the most basic medical tenet: “Do No Harm.”
Abortion is an act of violence against an innocent human being.
