Abortion .

  1. 1. By : Reniece Williams ( Niecei ] Mr.Wynne .. Prd. O3
  2. 2.  In medicine , an abortion is the premature exit of the products of conception (the fetus, fetal membranes, and placenta ) from the uterus. It is the loss of a pregnancy
  3. 3.  In my opinion , abortion is murder . When you get pregnant , it might still be just a fetus for awhile but it’s still one of us . Your basically killing another human who is helpless and can’t speak for him/herself yet . Your getting rid of a future person who is trying to develop a life and basically your being selfish because your thinking of yourself ( most of the time ] .
  4. 4.  During abortion , pregnancy is removed from the uterus . The options of the type of abortion you can get all depends upon the stage of pregnancy .  Medical Abortion : The Abortion Pill is an option up to 8 weeks LMP ( Last Menstrual Period ] . It causes the end of your pregnancy . Then 24-72 hours later, the woman uses Misoprostol ( Misoprostol reduces stomach acid and replaces protective substances in the stomach that are inhibited by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ] to cause the uterus to contract and expel the tissue. A follow-up appointment is required to make sure the abortion is complete .
  5. 5.  Vacuum Aspiration : In the first trimester , usually 6 to 13 weeks , vacuum aspiration is the procedure used to empty the uterus . This traditional first trimester abortion involves three main steps : an injection to numb the cervix , insertion of a soft flexible tube through the cervix into the uterus , suction created by an aspirating machine to remove the pregnancy from the uterus .  Dilation & Curettage ( D&C ] : In a D&C abortion , usually performed between 7 and 12 weeks of pregnancy , the doctor inserts a curette , a loop-shaped steel knife , into the womb through the dilated cervix . As the curette scrapes the wall of the uterus , the baby is cut into pieces .  There are many more type of abortion like salt poisoning , hysterotomy , etc .
  6. 6.  Did you know a miscarriage is also an abortion ? It is a different type of abortion called a spontaneous abortion . It is the spontaneous ending of a pregnancy before the fetus is mature enough to survive outside the uterus . If the uterus is not completely emptied and D&C is performed .
  7. 7.  Would you consider abortion ?  For the boys , would your child’s mother into having an abortion just because you don’t want a baby ?  How do you feel about abortion ?  Do you think all women that have abortions soon later regret it ?
