"Before 6 weeks of pregnancy, abortion is a medical decision like appendectomy, it depends on condition of fetus and health of mother and opinion of father. Abortion is like a divorce: God does not like it, but if you have to do the abortion to save the mother's life, then you have no choice. Abortion on demand is haram in Islam. In Islam, woman does not have a choice to cut off her finger, but if the finger is infected then she has to agree to it. In Islam, woman does not have a choice to kill her baby because life is sacred for mother and baby."
"What you won't hear or probably read in the fine print; abortion is like any other other surgical procedure. Just like cutting out your appendix there are risks; death, reactions to anesthesia, scar tissue, it can reduce your chances of ever conceiving again. In some cases it can leave permanent emotional scars. Like any informed surgery you might need, know the facts before you allow someone to operate on your body and take a life. "
"Medical abortion is a way to end pregnancy without surgery, and is like having a miscarriage.
It falls into two categories. Early medical abortion performed up to 9 weeks of pregnancy induces a miscarriage. Second trimester medical abortion is performed later in pregnancy to put a woman into early labour."
"Durango Pregnancy Center does not believe that abortion is a healthy option. We do believe that your life and the life of your baby is a gift and gifts are something that are precious. We are here to help you and while we cannot make the decision for you we can listen and help you with appropriate information. Abortion is a very serious decision that can have life long consequences. Many would have you believe that having an abortion is like having a tooth pulled, painful but without lasting consequences. Our experience is that women who have had abortions, more often than not, do not forget the event. That is why we are here to help you, in whatever way we can, to choose a healthy option."
"Don't just rely on the pill!! Some people try to fall pregnant for years and some say an abortion is like having a cold. I feel that in the right situations abortions are the right way to go. But reading these comments with no emotion is disgusting. That was a life, a child. Pill and condom simple solution!"
In a recent piece for RH Reality Check entitled, "Nicki Minaj and the Inevitable Politicization of Celebrity Abortions," Marcotte argued that women regret pregnancy - not abortion. Referencing singer Nicki Minaj, she urged that pregnancy is like "when you break your leg" and abortion is the "cast."
"Perhaps one reason for the strong abortion/suicide link exists in the fact that in many ways abortion is like suicide. A person who threatens suicide is actually crying out for help. So are women who contemplate abortion. Both are in a state of despair. Both are lonely. Both feel faced by insurmountable odds."
"What does this have to do with abortion, you ask? You may be surprised to find that there are many parallels between the criticisms feminists levy against this nail polish and the criticisms pro-life feminists raise about the prevalence of abortion."
"If he's right, then abortion is like having a mole removed, even though if you gave the mole enough time it could turn into a person. That doesn't matter. It's not a person right now, and what it is right now matters more than what it could become later."
