What are the health risks of getting an abortion?

I have to do a PSA (public service announcement, ex: above the influence) for my school. I have to write a persuasive essay and I really need help with some health risks or any reasons that makes getting an abortion wrong except for religious or moral reasons. Thanks!

    It can cause infertility (not likely, but possible). You should be able to find plenty info on the internet about the risks.

    I don’t know TOO much about abortions, but obviously the mental and emotional scars it can leave on the mother are significant. Some women can never get over the feeling of guilt and regret. I guess you could expand on that.. I wish I could help you more, but I would google it.

    Edit: Just wanted to add make sure you get reliable UNBIASED sources.

    Well my sister had one about 4 or so months ago, and well she’s pregnant again, by someone else that she’s only known for 1 1/2 months, and she’s planning on keeping it. What an idiot, and she’s only 19…Sorry had to vent.

    Anticipated side effects following an abortion:

    The following is a list of side effects that are frequently experienced following an abortion. It is possible that you may experience these side effects for up to 2 to 4 weeks following the procedure.

    * Abdominal pain and cramping
    * Nausea
    * Vomiting
    * Diarrhea
    * Spotting and Bleeding

    Potential more serious complications following an abortion.

    Although serious complications only occur in less than 1 out of 100 first trimester abortions and approximately 1 out of every 50 late term abortions; it is important to know the possible risks:

    * Heavy or persistent bleeding
    * Infection or sepsis
    * Damage to the cervix
    * Scarring of the uterine lining
    * Perforation of the uterus
    * Damage to other organs
    * Death

    It is important to understand that these risks are rare and some are even present with child birth. What matters is that you are aware that they exist as you make an educated decision about your pregnancy.

    You should Google it, there are endless sites about abortions.

    I personally believe it’s your choice weather to get an abortion or to not get an abortion. And it’s NEVER OK to laugh at something as serious and as difficult as making that decision. To the girl who laughed, you should be ashamed of your self. I’m sure your sister will think of the choice she made for the rest of her life. What could a little support from a family member hurt? Despite your personal thoughts on the issue, I’m sure she probably needed someone to be there for her.

    This is a good source for information on the health risks associated with abortion: http://www.abort73.com/abortion/abortion_risks

    Abortion supporters will generally tell you that abortion is safer for the mother than carrying her pregnancy to term. This is only true if the potential connection between abortion and breast cancer is discarded.

    And regarding your last statement – the strongest arguments against abortion have nothing to do with religion. Take a look. It may surprise you: http://www.abort73.com/abortion/medical_testimony

    there are almost no health risks associated with clinical abortions in america today, and those that are there occur very rarely. however i can tell you this. i am a mortician, and i’ve seen many religious folks try to do an at home coat hanger job, and a few have ended up on my table. bottom line; when abortion is illegal, women seek unsafe alternatives, which leads to death.
