It’s no myth: Studies, documents say abortion can cause infertility, miscarriage

miscarriage, infant loss

Can abortion negatively affect future pregnancies or possibly even contribute to infertility? Conflicting claims abound. While some, like one author at Yahoo.com, believe any potential negative effects on future fertility caused by abortion are just a “prevailing myth,” multiple studies say otherwise. And women deserve to know this.

Karen Fratti, the Yahoo! author, has tweeted her support of abortion, and chose to pepper her article with images of Planned Parenthood tweets. She also tipped her hand when she referred to pro-lifers as “anti-choice,” and dismissed the abortion-breast cancer link (which even a pro-choice filmmaker found compelling) without citing an ounce of proof. Fratti concluded:

“[…T]here have been no studies that show having an abortion, whether it is a surgical or medical abortion, will negatively affect your chances of getting pregnant later on in life…. As long as abortion remains legal and safe going forward, a woman’s future fertility will most likely not be affected whatsoever.”

But this “health expert” must not be aware of studies which show that women who have abortions are at higher risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which can cause infertility. Abortion has connections to endometritis, infections, and PID, all known to cause infertility.

In 2015, Live Action News contributor Calvin Freiburger detailed studies that showed abortion can affect future pregnancies:

  • British Journal of Gynecology, 2006: Post-abortive women have a 60% higher risk of future miscarriage.
  • International Journal of Epidemiology, 2003: “prior history of induced abortion was significantly associated with increased risk of miscarriage (<28 weeks of gestational age) and first-trimester miscarriage (<14 weeks of gestational age).”
  • British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1991: Post-abortive women have a 1.5-1.7% higher risk of ectopic pregnancy compared to women who’ve previously carried a pregnancy to term.
  • Journal of the American Medical Association, 1980: “Women who had had two or more prior induced abortions had a twofold to threefold increase in risk of first-trimester spontaneous abortionloss between 14 to 19 and 20 to 27 weeks,” although “No increase in risk of pregnancy loss was detected among women with a single prior induced abortion.”
  • “Why Can’t We Love Them Both?” — by Dr. John and Barbara Willke — identifies nine additional studies from between 1971 and 1983, published in the above and other mainstream medical journals, linking abortion and miscarriage.

Fratti acknowledged that the “risk of damaging the cervix or uterus can go up if a woman gets multiple surgical abortions,” but failed to point out that repeat abortions are becoming more common.

Yahoo’s “expert” Dr. Jennifer Wider, actually admitted to Glamour:

There is some research that suggests that women who have had multiple surgical abortions may be more likely to have future pre-term births or infants with low birth weight…. More studies are needed to further delineate to get a clearer picture.

Women deserve to know about this research. “Myths” don’t usually appear in multiple medical journals.

In the video below, former abortionist Anthony Levatino explains that future pregnancies are “at a greater risk for loss or premature delivery due to abortion-related trauma or injury to the cervix.”

Live Action News previously discovered that what abortion facilities tell women in the fine print of consent forms are quite different than Fratti’s conclusions.

1. Sterility is listed as a possible “complication” for surgical and medical abortion on this Planned Parenthood abortion consent form.

Sterility means “failing to produce or incapable of producing offspring.” Note that it is listed as a risk even for “medical/non-surgical abortion” — something Fratti denies in her article.

2. A second Planned Parenthood parental consent form shows sterility as a risk of surgical abortion.

3. Under medication abortion, the form states, “Fertility can be diminished in very rare instances as a consequence of infection.”

3). Maryland’s Gynemed Surgical Center abortion facility consent form states that a surgical abortion can result in a lacerated uterus, infection, perforation, scar tissue and even death, and “inability to have children.”

Scar tissue can occur in the cervix…and may require repeat dilation. Scar tissue in the uterus… may result in the inability to have children.

Gynemed consent form abortion affects ability to have children

4. If seeking a medication abortion, the patient is notified that “no guarantees about my future fertility can be offered to me…. I understand that there is evidence that women who have more than three induced abortions may be at increased risk for premature labor.”

The abortion industry has one thing in mind, and it’s not a woman’s “fertility” or “future pregnancies.” Its concern is to portray abortion as a safe or minimally risky procedure, close the deal, collect the money, and kill the developing baby. If a woman’s future pregnancies are affected, or she experiences infertility, the industry will simply blame it on other causes, while they count their profit.

Planned Parenthood describes abortion and fetal development

Posted in Fetal Development, Planned Parenthood abortion description with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood has a page on their website which details fetal development; what women can expect at various points in their pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood week to week

Weeks 5–6

The embryo is less than 1/5 inch (4–5 mm) long.
A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.
Buds for arms and legs develop.
The neural tube begins forming. The neural tube will later form the brain, spinal cord, and major nerves.
The bud of a tail develops.
The umbilical cord begins developing.

Weeks 9–10

The embryo develops into a fetus after 10 weeks. It is 1–1.5 inches (21–40 mm) long.
The tail disappears.
Fingers and toes are longer.
The umbilical cord connects the abdomen of the fetus to the placenta. The placenta is attached to the wall of the uterus. It absorbs nutrients from the woman’s bloodstream. The cord carries nutrients and oxygen to the fetus and takes wastes away from the fetus.

Planned Parenthood also has pages that describe abortion, although in the most minimal way.

Planned Parenthood abortion

Aspiration abortion

D+E Abortion

Apparently, according to Planned Parenthood there are two main types of abortion:

PP in clinic and d+e abortion

In Clinic Abortion and D+E abortion.

There is more than one kind of in-clinic abortion procedure. The most common is called aspiration. It is also known as vacuum aspiration. Aspiration is usually used up to 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.

“D&E – dilation and evacuation – is another kind of in-clinic abortion. D&E is usually performed later than 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.”

________________________________________________________________

Let’s intertwine Planned Parenthood’s abortion descriptions with their fetal development descriptions:

______________________________________________

ASPIRATION Abortion as described by Planned Parenthood:

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 7 to 8 weeks

The opening of your cervix may be stretched with dilators — a series of increasingly thick rods. Or you may have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and get bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix. Medication may also be used with or without the dilators to help open your cervix.

PP Fetal develop 9 to 10 weeks

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

A tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus

PP Fetal develop11 to 12 weeks

Either a hand-held suction device or a suction machine gently empties your uterus

PP Fetal develop 13 to 14 weeks

Sometimes, an instrument called a curette is used to remove any remaining tissue that lines the uterus. It may also be used to check that the uterus is empty. When a curette is used, people often call the abortion a D&C — dilation and curettage.

An aspiration procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. But more time may be needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

Now, we’ll look at Planned Parenthood’s description of a D+E abortion:

Exactly what is a D+E abortion?

Planned Parenthood gives a very vague description on purpose $$$$

Listen to former abortion doctor Dr. Anthony Levatino explain it here:

Thanks to ClinicQuotes.com – there is another transcript of his explanation below:

A second trimester D&E abortion is a blind procedure. The baby can be in any orientation or position inside the uterus. Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp and grasping anything you can. At twenty weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard – really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about 4 to 5 inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.

The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush down on the clamp and see a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. If you have a really bad day like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you.”

Congratulations! You have just successfully performed a Suction D&E abortion. You just affirmed her right to choose. You just made $600 cash in fifteen minutes.

Life News has more descriptions here.

Below- the Planned Parenthood version: (which profits from abortion)

D&E – Dilation & Evacuation

During a D&E:

Your health care provider will examine you and check your uterus.

You will get medication for pain. You may be offered sedation or IV medication to make you more comfortable

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

PP Fetal develop 15 to 16 weeks

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

Your cervix will be prepared for the procedure. You may be given medication or have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and grow bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins

Your health care provider will inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

PP Fetal develop 19 to 20 weeks

Medical instruments and a suction machine gently empty your uterus

A D&E usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. But more time is needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

PP Fetal develop 21 to 24 weeks

PP Fetal develop 25 to 28 weeks

PP Fetal develop 29 to 32 weeks

PP Fetal develop 33 to 36 weeks

PP Fetal develop 37 to 40 weeks

Planned Parenthood’s Gender Confusion

Posted in HPV, Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , on October 9, 2013 by saynsumthn

I saw this poster by Planned Parenthood when they tweeted this, “Everyone who has a cervix can get cervical cancer – no matter your gender or who you have sex with. http://ow.ly/i/3mkVz&#8221;

PP Cervix Tweet

PP CERVIX Gender Confusion PP

NO MATTER YOUR GENDER? UH…A CERVIX IS PART OF THE FEMALE BODY – PLANNED PARENTHOOD….But then again- they do not know the baby is a separate person, why would they get this right as well.

According to medical dictionaries:

Cervix: The cervix is the lower, narrow part of the uterus (womb). The uterus, a hollow, pear-shaped organ, is located in a woman’s lower abdomen, between the bladder and the rectum. The cervix forms a canal that opens into the vagina, which leads to the outside of the body.

Cervix Def


And from WEB MD:

The cervix is a cylinder-shaped neck of tissue that connects the vagina and uterus. The cervix is made of cartilage covered by smooth, moist tissue, and is about 1 inch across. There are two main portions of the cervix:

I guess the message Planned Parenthood is trying to send is that HPV leads to Cervical Cancer and anyone can get and or spread it…..but..they should have been a little more clear, don’t ya think?
