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...
We had been together for nine months when I found out I was pregnant. I felt a mixture of emotions. I was happy to be carrying a child with a man I loved, whom loved me back. But most of what I was feeling was fear.... I got an ultrasound at 5 weeks, and the lady who was performing my ultrasound told me that my “fetus” did not yet have a heartbeat.... I felt like I suddenly had an answer to all of my fears, doubts and questions with that one, simple statement. By the time I had my abortion appointment, I was 7 weeks along.

When I told him that I couldn't go through with it, he was just as happy as I was. This is where my nightmare began. Over the next few weeks, we discussed the reality of our situation—barely 19 with two children. He was scared and rightly so, but because he was scared, I was petrified. I suddenly had all of those same doubts and fears but multiplied! I scheduled another abortion appointment, this time at 9 weeks.... It is two years since my abortion, and I still wake up in cold sweats from the nightmares that occur often.... I regret my decision every second. Every breath I take, I breathe with regret. I am appalled by myself and hate myself for what I have done.... Click here to read this story in its entirety.
