Subject: The Burden of Hope

The Burden of Hope
From Jars of Clay
“Christmas Reflections”
“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19
Christmas comes each year with its dangerous invitation to hope. Yet for most of us, this invitation feels more like an inconvenience and a burden. We see this burden from the very beginning, as Mary herself pondered the meaning of all of these things, I wonder how many of her personal hopes and dreams were on the altar at this moment. Surely this was not the life that she had dreamed for herself, and who could possibly understand the road that she was about to walk? Who would go with her? As she began to consider all that she would lose along this journey the invitation to hope must have felt callous and far-fetched.
If you are like me this is where most of my adult Christmas’ have been spent, burdened and heavy under the Hope that promises much but asks for everything along the way. Maybe this is your story this year, maybe your losses have been deep and painful. Maybe you stand in the reality of every Christmas from now on being a bitter reminder of those that are no longer with you, and things that have been lost along the way. If this is you take courage from Mary who somehow found a way to move from deep pondering and introspection to singing. Somewhere along the road the question of her life ceases to become “If you knew me and loved me God how could you ask this of me” to “God who do you see when you look at me?” Somewhere along the way her hope was unfettered to all those good things that she had hoped her life would be and became anchored to God’s hopes for her.
“for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed,” – Luke 2:48

**Mary walked in your shoes - she knew the frightening feelings of being an unwed mother - and she knew she was facing stoning (the death penalty) for her position. Remember that God is with you in your situation, He will see you through the tough time.

Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow Could Have Been a Victim of Abortion Email this article
Printer friendly page

by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
December 9, 2007


New York, NY (LifeNews.com) -- University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow became the first sophomore in the history of the NCAA to win the coveted Heisman Trophy as the best football player in the nation. However, Tebow's accomplishments may never have been supported had his mother followed a doctor's recommendation to have an abortion.
With 29 passing touchdowns and 22 rushing touchdowns, Tebow displayed the kind of versatility that has become more valued at the quarterback position.

Pam Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for "Timmy" before she became pregnant.

Unfortunately, as the Gainesville Sun reports, Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink.

The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim -- so they advised her to have an abortion.

As the Sun reported, Pam Tebow refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and, eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy in August 1987.

As she told the newspaper, Pam was not surprised that her son would be up for the Heisman despite no underclassman receiving the award since its inception in 1933.

"The combination of Timmy's God-given talent, hard work, character and leadership have made a mark on and off the football field," she said.

As prominent researcher Joel Brind writes in a new LifeNews.com editorial, doctors are frequently telling women they should consider abortions when confronted with various medical situations affecting their health.

Yet, as he notes, physicians can successfully treat both mother and child without suggesting that the baby be killed to spare a mother's life.

Because Tim Tebow was spared, he's wowed a nation by his athletic skill and, at his younger age, has an opportunity to become the second person to win two Heisman awards.

Okay. I've never done a forum thing but i need help!!

My periods are very regular, and usually last 6 days.
My last period was November 6 through the 12th.

On November 21 I had a pap smear done so I could get started on birth control when my next period started.

I was in a 7 month relationship which broke off around the time i got my pap smear, it was an emotional crisis for me. We talk about getting back together, and then staying friends...It's immature I know, but the stress is overwhelming.

Him & I had sex on November 29. He went for a little, and then stopped, and we did other things until he ejaculated to make sure nothing happened. We had always used condoms, except that time.

I was his first person to have sex with and he didn't want to just have sex with anyone else when he hadn't been in a relationship with them, and he still has strong feelings for me.

It's now December 7 leaving me late by a day!!
I'm having mild cramping, but no period...

Could it just be the stress from the break up, or is it more likely that i could be pregnant?

Well I'm 22 years old and I'm 12 weeks 5 days pregnant and I feel very bad for not making my decission yet. There are many cons to having this baby in my opinion. The father of the baby is now my ex boyfriend and is seeing someone else, he doesn't have a proper job and is having financial prolems. He's also not emotionally supportive, only seeing my once in a while,although he's for me keeping the baby. However, he spends all his time with his new girlfriend and doesn't have time for me and my needs when I need him. I also have financial problems and my family isn't in a position where they would be able to help me. I also feel like if I have a baby now I will not be able to help my parents and my family, financially in the future...we have a lot of money problems. My parents also don't like my ex boyfriend because he has lied and betrayed me in the past, and also because he has been in trouble with the law. If they found out about me being pregnant with his baby they would be extremly dissapointed and shocked. I don't know how my family would react and I don't want to be the cause of putting stress and problems on my family, I'm afraid it would make me and my family grow apart. I have already had 3 abortions and I don't know how having another one would make me feel, I feel like I'm too weak and I feel bad for not being strong enough.After my last abortion I felt depressed for a while, and constantly kept asking myself "what if i kept my baby". It's very painful to be preganant and not have the father around, especially knowing he's with someone else, someone who he left me for and caused me a lot of heartache. I just want to move on and forget about him, but how can I if I'm pregnant with his baby? I don't think I'm strong enough to do it on my own. He says he will be with me when the baby comes, but I don't believe him. He's so careless with my emotions and doesn't understand that being pregnant isn't easy. io haven't told anyone in my family yet, but I know that I would be too embarrased to live at home with my mother and my uncle if I kept the baby because it's my uncle's house and he has been kind enough to let my mom and I stay with him for many years, I would dissapoint him and my father who lives in a nother country very much. Where would I live? How will I afford this baby?

Hello all. I am in a tight spot and wondered if anyone had any ideas. I am just a couple of weeks pregnant and am planning on having an abortion. Obviously, time is an issue here in terms of raising the money for the procedure. My husband and I are both in college and money is extremely tight; does anyone know of any types of public or private funding that I might take advantage of to help pay for the prodecure? Thanks for any suggestions.

Well, i am 19 and two months ago i met this guy at work who is 36. He came up to me to ask how my mother was. I didnt know him from adam and i didnt think about him after that. Days later he started talking to me and then talking, went into flirting and then just about 11 days ago, i had sex with him and he was my first but it was unprotected. About four days later my breasts/nipples started to get sore and tender and i've been feeling really nauseas and started cramping and been very bloated but today i got my period and its regular but it came like over a week early and some of my friends have been telling me that i might be pregnant even though i have my period cause their mom's had their periods up to the day they gave birth to their children so i was wondering if i should still go and get tested by a doctor? Oh ontop of that, this man is very fertile and already has five other kids.

my period has been irregular since the age of 14. i got on the pill when i was 16, and i started to become regular. i got off the pill, and it went back to being irregular. i am now 17, and i took the birthcontrol shot once about 6 months ago. i know by now it would have worn off, and it could be a chance that i am pregnant. lately i have been very tired, moody, i cry sometimes for no reason, and i am very bloated. my breast don't hurt like i hear a lot of people say when they get pregnant, but my nipples are very sensative. what has really been bothering me though is my lower back. it just won't stop hurting. could that also been a sign of pregnancy, or not really? i really have a couple of questions, so if someone could please help me i would really appreciate it.
~is it possible to get pregnant when u have an irregurlar period?
~does back pain have anything to do with it?

I have had irregular periods for a few years now, off and on. I have only been on birth control for 6 mo (that was 6 yrs ago!) so it's not due to that. My period was starting on Oct 2nd, but my fiance and I had unprotected sex that night (but he did not finish inside me). Subsequently my period never continued. I am having no symptoms whatsoever but here at 15 days past a regular period date I still have yet to get it. I am highly stressed right now; could that cause me to miss a period? I am scheduled for pregnancy test on Friday. Please pray for me to be content with the results. Thank you.

My last two periods were on April 26 and May 28. How long would this make my cycle? It is now July 1st and I have not started my period. I had unprotected sex on June 13 and ever since have been feeling a little strange- very sore breasts which look bigger, I am able to see the blue veins in my chest, have felt cramping on and off on in the lower part of abdomen- near where I think ovaries are. I also had increased cervical mucus which I do not normally have and very tired as well as having very vivid dreams. I have been having headaches on and off and I took two tests- one one June 25 and one on June 29. Both were negative, does this mean I took them too early or I am not pregnant and late for some reason?

I found out that i was pregnant after a few weeks when my periods were late. I took a test and it came back positive. At the time i had mixed feelings, i was happy in one way but scared in another way.
Once i told the baby's father, he spilt from me. He is 33 and i am 26. I felt alone and very nervous. I had support from my family and friends. I started to get used to the idea.
After my 12 weeks scan, i was the happiest person on earth on this day. Staring down at this picture i felt an oumph run through me.
As the weeks carried on, my bump started to increase, and although it was early stages, i started shopping for unisex clothes.
I had my 20 weeks scan, i couldn't wait to receive my next scan picture...well things took a turn for the worst. You can find out if there are any abnormabitities (excuse spelling) so i choose to have that. Waiting outside i felt nervous that they were taking there time.
I found out that i was carrying a boy and that it had downs syndrome.
I wasn't prepared for this, this wasn't meant to happen to me. I came out of the Sonographers unit completely in shock.
To cut a long story short...i discussed this with my doctor, with my family and my current partner and made the hardest decision of my life.
I had to think of the long run, all the problems, with learning, even walking, giving up my day job as a training solider it scared me to think that i could put a child through this.
I went to a clinic in my home town where they made an appointment for me in a clinic over 200 miles away, as i was so far gone this was the only place that would offer me the Surgical Termination.
Well you can imagine how i felt afterwards...the pain, the grief, part of me that had been with me for 22 weeks was gone, the bump had gone, it was a horrible horrible feeling.
This had made me look back on life! Although this site is for people worried about unplanned pregnancy, if you are not sure about what to do, if you feel alone, talk to your doctor, DISCUSS with your doctor, before making any drastic decisions.
No matter how old or how young you are, this is a new life that you are bringing into the world, make sure your ready for it, think ahead of all the money issues, your social life being put to the side.
I read through some peoples problems on here, and some are young, what ever you decide make sure you always talk it through with a family member, your Sonograpgher (person that scans your bump), doctor most of all your partner if your with him.
Thanks for taking time to read this, i orginally came on the net to think of a poem to write, to put my feelings of hurt and pain down onto paper and i came across this website and wanted to share what i had been through, with other people who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
Claire.

I decided to have a Termination. This tore me in 2.

me and my boyfriend had sex late friday nite and my period had just went off the day before, on thursday. while we was doin it we realized that the condom had broke and he said that he ejaculated in me a little bit, but it wasn't a lot. I have been very worried that i might be pregnant & for the past few days my stomach has been hurting and i have been urinating a lot. I went on the computer to clculate my possible ovulation day and it showed it to be on tuesday 8-7(4 days after i had sex). I really would like to know if it is possible that i may be pregnant & is there anyway i can find out before i see if i miss my period.

my "girlfriend" is 2 months pregnant. weve been through alot in the past couple of months she used to date my best friend who now hates me. she is very stressed out all the time cuz everything happened too fast for her and she still wants to be young (shes 21 and im 22) and travel and pretty much "do her her own thing". everybody already knows shes preg. including our families and friends. i know she cares about me and what i think and im completely against abortion, tho a child is pretty rough at the point in both our lives. she told me a couple days ago she needs a few days alone to find herself (should i be ok with that?) she told her xbf she cant talk or see him at all anymore. she promised me she wouldnt get a n abortion but im truly scared she will or even miscarriage due to her stress. what should i do when i cant even talk to her right now????????

My boyfriend and I broke up but were still sexually active. We had sex on the day I was supposed to ovulate and we usually use the "pull out method," but this time he came in me. We did this twice. A week later, I had sex with someone else who did not come inside of me. What are the odds that this baby is my x boyfriends?

My girlfriend is turning 16 and i recently turned 18. we had sex June 27th not thinking w/o a condom. She has been on birth control since february (knowing it isn't reliable) i instinctively pulled out before ejaculating... we may have done this 3 times that night and i did (also instinctively) urinate between each session. she finished the b/c pills tuesday night and she is on the plecibo pills... she's supposed to start taking the bc pills monday. If she hasn't gotten her period by monday should she refrain from taking them until she has?

okay i have a question. well a few. Im 5 months preg. and just found out im having a baby boy. but anyways, why do doctors determine the due date by the last period someone had? And can you get pregnant the day before a period? Or is it usually 2 weeks before a period or 2 weeks after a period? I had sex and that was late at night and then i had my period that morning. Like we had sex at like probably 3 in the morning and when we woke up after awhile i had my period. It was a normal period, nothing light or short or anything. Everything was normal. SO that means that wasnt when i got pregnant right? OKay sorry for all this. just a curious question.

I got a abortion six weeks ago. I know it needed to be done. We where both out of a job. Not any place would hire me. There was always someone better qualfied. Before the procedure was done I bawled my eyes for 30 mins. I cried for days after. I felt backed into a corner into doing it.My husband of 8 years does not understand. Every time I see apregnant women I just want to scream and cry but I hold it in. I need to know how to stop this and go on with my life.It broke my heart when I told my hubby I was pregnant unless than five mintues later. He said where getting a abortion and kept on me until I did. I know he was right. What do I need to do to get over it.

Need someones opinion on my matter.

Im 22, ive been with my boyfriend for a year now. I had my last period on May 14, it was a normal every month period. i started antibiotics on the 17th of May. On the 31st of May we had unprotected sex. i am on birth control also, but i'll be honest, i miss some pills and have to double up sometimes. i was supposed to start my period on wednesday and havent. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it came up negative, but......on the part of the test where it should have had a straight line for neg and a crossed line for positive it looked different like it could have been inaccurate. It told me to pee on it for 10 seconds but i only about 4 seconds. I have a OBGYN appt. on thursday for an annual appt, should i just wait and ask the dr. Is it possible that i am pregnant and the home test is inaccurate.

Hi everyone... I have a few questions- first of all here is my situation. My husband and I had unprotected sex on April 15 and on April 26 I started lightly bleeding but then it got heavier and lasted for about four days on and off. We have an eight month old daughter and were not really trying yet to have another baby, but it may be a good thing. Anyway, I have been having a lot of headaches, and the past few days my stomach has been looking very swollen, much like it was when I was pregnant with our daughter. I have also had some discharge from my breasts and I have not breastfed my daughter since she was four months old. I have taken three tests and all have come up negative but I feel strange. I guess the weirdest part is that my stomach is hard and round, when it is usually very flat. Do you think I am pregnant?

Throughout my life my period has been very irregular and not on time at all. On May 17th I woke up and thought I started my period. I was bleeding and put a tampon in, but when i went to change it found very little on it. Throughout the day I received a little bit of brown discharge. Prior to my period I have had brown discharge before but I am still getting scared. What do you think is wrong? What should I do? Thanks.

I am 15 years old. I had been dating this guy (Jeffery) for 2 and a half years. And we were sexually active. We never used protection. He said he didnt like the way it felt. That was my first mistake. We broke on November 20, 2006. That was the last time we was sexually active. We didnt use protection. He ejaculated inside of me. I didnt think anything of it. He had done it millions of times. I was supposed to have started my period December 13. I never started. I thought ok its going to be late but no biggy. I finally started January 1, 2007. It was really dark. Not the natural color. It lasted 5 days. I got off of it January 5th. I didnt think anything of it. I was a little concerned. But just ignored the fact that there was a possibilty I could be pregnant. My appetite grew. I started having these crazy cravings. Like Pickles dipped in Ketchup. My stomach startin gettin alot bigger. Then January 14, 2007. Me && Jeffery Had sex for the the last time. He was rough this time. He had never been like this before. And we went until he ejaculated twice. It hurt. I told him that. But he kept on. Then after he was done he took me home and said he never wanted to talk to me again. I was really upset. So the next night...A couple of my guy friends wanted me to go out with them. So I went back to their place. We ended up having a 3-some. The next morning I woke up and there was blood everywhere. I thought I was on my period again. It scared me because I had never bled like this before. It was Really red and was in clumps. It scared me. And I was wondering if anyone knew what that could have been. I told my friends about it and they said that I could have been pregnant and lost it. Someone please write me back at my email atop and let me know your opinion. I need to know this. Its really important.
Thanks!!

Planned Parenthood Threatens UCLA Pro-Life Advocate on Abortion Coverup

by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
May 15, 2007


Los Angeles, CA (LifeNews.com) -- Planned Parenthood is upset that a pro-life student at UCLA posed as a pregnant teenager and exposed it for advising her to disguise statutory rape. In an undercover investigative story for a student-run newspaper, UCLA student Lila Rose posed as a pregnant 15 year-old and entered a Santa Monica Planned Parenthood.
She told officials there that a 23 year old man had impregnated her and her article in The Advocate newspaper says PP staff assured Rose that if she said she was 16 or older, they wouldn't have to report the rape.

Unbeknownst to Planned Parenthood officials at the time, Rose taped the conversations and posted them on the popular web site YouTube.

The abortion facility staff encouraged her to "figure out a birth-date that works," to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the police.

That isn't going over well with the abortion business and Mary Jane Wagle, the CEO of Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles sent Rose a letter threatening to sue her.

According to the letter, which LifeNews.com obtained, Wagle claims the videos were made "through false pretenses and unlawfully" and that the conversations they contain "were surreptitiously recorded without the knowledge and consent of PPLA employees."

Wagle claims the videos violate the state's invasion of privacy laws and she demands that Rose remove the videos from YouTube and provide the original copies of them to PPLA officials as well as cease all communications with the abortion business.

"If you do not take these three steps, PPLA will seek appropriate legal remedies," Wagle wrote and threatened that failure to respond could be met with several fines at $5,000 each for violating the state law on privacy.

Responding to the letter, David French, an attorney with the Alliance Defense Fund, told CNS News that Planned Parenthood is "engaging in a campaign...to bully an 18-year-old to distract attention from the fact that their employees were engaging in unlawful behavior."

French is providing legal counsel to Rose and told the news service that "Nothing changes the truth of what's contained in those videotapes."

"Planned Parenthood was advocating that a patient lie, advocating a way around mandatory reporting requirements for statutory rape, and nothing that Planned Parenthood does as far as trying to bully her regarding the tapes themselves can change those facts," he said.

French said that Rose doesn't want to wind up in court and that she will comply with Planned Parenthood's demands.

After releasing the videotape, Rose told LifeNews.com that "California's mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape are supposed to protect pregnant minors."

"Underage girls are being targeted by predators, and Planned Parenthood is busy covering up the evidence. How many other rapes has this one clinic covered up?" she asked.

The story appears in the second issue of the newspaper and the first one had details about the UCLA case.

In that situation, the counselor told Rose, who again claimed to be pregnant, that the college has no resources available for students keeping their babies. The counselor also encouraged the student to get the state health system to pay for the abortion.

The advice came from Ann Brooks, nurse practitioner and counselor at the UCLA Health Center.

Rose said the counseling was entirely aimed at encouraging an abortion -- thinking that was the only option to help her stay in school.
The student said Brooks also advised her to use Medi-Cal to fund her abortion with taxpayer funds.

"I have a place I can send you where they will get you signed up for Medi-Cal coverage and they just don't ask," the counselor reportedly said.

Brooks allegedly said Rose should have an abortion because of a lack of support for pregnancies on campus and the discomforts of pregnancy.

"Most of the students I talk to terminate their pregnancies," Brooks said, describing the unborn child as "a collection of cells."

She added that Rose could expect "physical difficulties" during pregnancy and the "embarrassment of your classmates" as a pregnant student living in the school dorms.

Brooks said "UCLA doesn't support people who are pregnant and make things easier for them necessarily."

I'm 18, about to be 19, and I started my period April 10th late in the afternoon, and my periods always last 6 days, and on the end of the 4th day, , and i was still bleeding at medium amounts, so me and my boyfriend were fooling around, but no sex or cumming, yet, and then he wanted to have sex, but we had no protection, so he put it inside of me barely, and like a few minuted later he was about to cum, and he pulled out completely, and then a half a second later he came on the bed, but not in me
could i be pregnant?
and when would be a good time to take a test to see if i am?
my boobs have been itching alot, but not sore more than a boob is suppose to already feel, and ive been constipated, but ive always had that problem ( i have to take a pill to help me go to the bathroom easy), i get a fullness in my stomach area, but i do have a large cyst on my left ovary, and a few small ones on my right ovary plus im always bloated and gasy, and i go pee same amount i usually do,
so besides of all this are there any other symptoms i should be aware of?

I came in there due to the fact I had gained 20 pounds in 2 and a half weeks,I also was constantly Exhausted,. I was being told constantly that i looked like i was 4 months pregnant. I went from eating a Plate to 3 plates just in the morning alone. And now I look like im 5 months along. Is it possible for the Qualatative Blood pregnancy test to be wrong.

Is it safe with the baby if i don't tell my mom right away? I am not stressing about it too much so i didnt think it would do anything, but i heard today that the baby could come out slow or something. I am only 17 thats why i haven't told my mom right away. I am taking care of everything on my own with the docotors and everything. So i don't think she needs to know this soon.

Well im kind of excited about my appoitment. I want to know when i am due. :) and how exactly far along i am. Will they be able to tell me when i got pregnant?

im glad that i dont have morning sickness, although today on the way to school i felt really sick, every little bump made me feel sicker.

Even though i just found out that im pregnant, im not even with the guy. I am going to raise the child on my own basically...its going to be very hard, but i know i have to do it..Well im going for now. Hope to hear back. && thank you for the information :D

Ok where do i start. Hi my names Amy i'm 19 & i'm from the uk, i found out on 03/23/07 that i was pregnant this came as a huge shock to me as i've been told by my doc that i'd always need help to have children. i've been with Danny for the past year & for some stupid reason i cheated on him i'm now seriously paying for my actions but he has been fantastic and has stood by me. i had my scan on the 03/28/07 and was told i was 7 weeks gone but the problem is i'm now not sure who the dad is as the dates are way to close for my liking this is why i've opted for a termination. i feel very selfish & deeply ashamed of myself as i've never done anything like this b4. when i first met Danny i was going through a divorce & while i was married me and my ex husband decided to try for a baby & i ended up having 6 misscarriages, a baby is all i have ever really wanted but not in this situation. i feel i have no support from my mum/sisters as they all know the trouble i've had trying to have a baby none of them want me to have a termination. i have my first appointment on april 2nd and i'm so scared incase i'm making the wrong choice but i know its the right one for me & my baby. i live in a small village where everyone knows everything and no one is talking to me since i cheated on danny if they was to find out i was pregnant i would get complete hassel i feel so lost and alone its untrue i just cant belive i've done this to myself

Study: Women Having Abortions More Likely to Be Abused by Their Partner

by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
April 3, 2007


Canberra, Australia (LifeNews.com) -- A new study published by researchers at La Trobe University in Australia finds that women who are abused by their partners are more likely to have an abortion of an unexpected pregnancy than to keep the baby. Women having abortions were also more likely to be from lower income families.
The researchers studied 9,683 young Australian women between the ages of 22 and 27. The information came from the Australian Longitudinal Study of Women's Health, which contains health data compiled by the government.

Women who had abortions in their teens or early 20s were more likely to have been abused by a partner than those who carried the pregnancy to term, they found.

The scientists published the results of the study in today's edition of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health.

In their article, they wrote, "'Women experiencing violence and abuse can be subject to coercive sex and unprotected intercourse, leading to a higher rate of unplanned and unwanted pregnancies."

Angela Taft and Lyndsey Watson led the study and Taft said that young women appear to have less control over sex or contraception decisions when they're with an abusive partner.

"'You could say that young women don't feel they have the right to say no," she said.

"What can society do about this problem?" Dr. Taft asks. "The take home message is that if we want to reduce the rate of abortion and unwanted pregnancy in Australia, especially among teenagers, we need to reduce violence against women."

"Also healthcare providers and pregnancy counseling services should ask women seeking [abortions] about their experiences of partner abuse and if necessary, refer them to supportive agencies," she added.

The study backs up the contention made by research in the United States that an inordinate number of women who have abortions do so because they feel pressure or coercion from a husband or boyfriend.

Dr. David Reardon of the Elliot Institute says they are a part of a widespread problem.


Reardon is the co-author of a recent 2006 Medical Science Monitor study of American and Russian women that found that 64 percent of American women who had abortions reported that they felt pressured to abort by others.

His organization, which monitors the effects of abortion on women, has also prepared special research previously showing cases of violence against women who refused to have abortions.

Reardon said that cases of women being pressured, threatened, or subjected to violence if they refuse to abort are not unusual.

"In many of the cases documented for our 'Forced Abortion in America' report, police and witnesses reported that acts of violence and murder took place after the woman refused to abort or because the attacker didn't want the pregnancy," he said.

"Even if a woman isn't physically threatened, she often faces intense pressure, abandonment, lack of support, or emotional blackmail if she doesn't abort," Dr. Reardon explained. "While abortion is often described as a 'choice,' women who've been there tell a very different story."

Reardon said the report underscores the need for legislation requiring abortion businesses and health care providers to screen women for evidence of coercion or pressure to abort and to direct them to people and resources that can help them.

A handful of states, including Michigan, have looked at such legislation.

too much alcohol on a casual date led to crazy unprotected sex and now i am 3 weeks pregnant. i am a 40 year old divorced mother of 3. i can't believe i am in this predicament at this stage in my life. i never thought i'd ever consider abortion but it seems differant now. if i have this child what would that do to my children boys 17 & 5 and girl 9. That's my main concern right now. nevermind how it'd alter my plans, and I haven't even considered the father in it all yet. i have to make a decision quickly because medication abortion is only available until 7 weeks and i could never go through with a d&c. What would be the least selfish option for me? i know i'm not the only older woman ever to be in this predicament. please, someone who has been here, share your experience with me....I could really use some food for thought right now.

I Think i may be pregnant. and it deffinently is freaking me out..i was supposed to have my period a week ago..i cant afford a test right now..as i am only 16. my boyfriend and i have been having sex since my freshman year..i am not on any kind of birthcontrol.and we hardly ever use a condom, but he is careful to pull out. i know that this is a really risky behavior. but we have been lucky in the past about a million times. ovcourse i know this also has nothing to do w/this time. this last week i have felt sick and very tired, and my breasts have hurt like no other, i thout it might be cuz i should have started my period. but today my niples have enlarged so much, atleast twice normal size. my boyfriend and i had sext a couple times in the last month, unprotected. i know that this is my fault. but do you think ther is a chance that i may be overeacting and could possibly have another explanation about why my breasts have been this way in the last few days??? omg please help if you can...!! thanks!!
