Quoting TashaMarie93:" :shock: I'm pro choice, not going to criticize abortion, but reading that you learned how to do it on, um, YOUTUBE?!?! I'm not understanding how that could sound like a good idea to anybody... "

whether its o youtube or wikapedia or whatever, the idea is a very good one..you pop your water to induce labor, the problem is there is a huge chance of infection..or hemmorage if you pierce thru a wall..so all in all its bad..but in a hospital setting, they would do the same thing except with sterile equipment ect ect

Sterile equipment and, more importantly, the ability to stop a hemorrhage. There is a huge vein that runs through the amniotic sac and if you rupture it accidentally you hemorrhage.

OP goodluck to you. I hope you get to a clinic soon.
I know you think what you were trying to do was best, but you are at serious risk of infection even now, so get to see someone as soon as possible.



Just remember, you may have thought about doing things in a dangerous way. But you are NOT a bad person.

I just wanna say i'm SO glad you are going to a clinic to get this done, but i'm SO sorry that you are having to go through all this :( i seriously just want to give you a hug, i can't imagine how scared you must be to go to the lengths that you did to try to make it go away. The clinic is the best option for you sweetie, and try to make an appointment for as soon as possible. I also wanted to tell you that your little angels can't actually FEEL pain yet, so please don't worry about them feeling anything!

Im late in this game but I came here and read all 6 pages of this thread and GOOD thing OP you are going to the clinic. DONT TRY anything else. Nobody is to judge you.



I was going to do a at home abortion when I was pregnant with my youngest one; then I went to planned parenthood, didnt have enough money.. so I gave him up for adoption.



But please dont do anything stupid to yourself again. And those youtube vids; they are pro life made so they try to make it look easy...

Why would you say they are pro life made? That's dumb.

Because Pro life activists like to make up things. Like your baby has nails.....Even though nail beds don't even develop until the 11th week.

I just don't get why someone would think pro-lifers would really make an at home abortion look easy. There's no point. It's dumb.

Quoting ♡Sarah♡ +1.5:" Because they are only pro life when it comes to the fetus, not the mother. If they can cause a woman to die or get an infection, they think they've done their job."


this... I knew there was a reason... I just couldnt remember why. lol.

Because Home abortion would kill a mother wanting to have an abortion, so they would make abortion look easy. Makes sense to me. Then again I put nothing past those people after the abortion clinic shootings ect.

Sweetheart, even if you did somehow force a miscarriage, you'd still have to go to the doctor to make sure there isn't left over tissue. Its not safe, you could lose your life. Please make sure this is the right decision for you then seek medical attention. If you want to protect them then maybe your mind isn't made up.. If you decide to keep them it is possible for you to take care of them. Once you've made the decision, we all know there's no going back. Be strong and best of luck.

OP.... I am glad you are going to a clinic. BTW, I know an abortion message board you can go to for support if you'd like. I will NOT post the link here, but if you want it, PM me. I had an abortion and it tremendously helped me, but I no longer post there because I don't need the support.



This goes to anyone who has had an abortion... if you feel you need support, PM me and we can chat or I can give you a link to the board. Let me know :)
