If You’re Pregnant
Find the information and help you need.
Abort73 exists to give you the facts and information that is not provided in the abortion clinic and to help connect you with practical alternatives to abortion.
If you're pregnant and contemplating abortion, PLEASE reconsider. There is a child in your womb that is depending on you for nourishment and protection. Even if you don't feel ready to be a mother, you are a mother–right now. But you are not alone; help is available. Abort73.com exists to help you better understand what abortion actually does to you and your baby, and Pregnancy Care Centers around the world exist to help you through your pregnancy and beyond.
If you are a minor being pressured to abort by your parents, know that you have legal rights. Parents cannot force an underage daughter to have an abortion, as spelled out in this letter from the Justice Foundation. Nor can the biological father.
As you contemplate abortion, remember the following:
1. Every successful abortion ends the life of a living human being.
Do not be fooled. Abortion does not end a potential life, it ends a real life – violently. It is not the removal of a "blob of tissue". It is the destruction of a tiny, human baby. The pictures and illustrations below should make that abundantly clear. Take the time to look through the timeline of prenatal development, and understand that there is overwhelming, incontrovertible evidence that life begins at conception.

2. Every successful abortion clinic SELLS abortions.
Just as a car dealer is in the business of selling cars, abortion clinics (like Planned Parenthood) are in the business of selling abortions. That's how they make their money. Their "counselors" are no more neutral than car salesmen (Do car salesmen encourage you to consider riding a bike or taking the bus?). There is a reason Planned Parenthood refers 120 abortions for every 1 adoption. Do not trust them to provide you with an accurate understanding of prenatal development or the ethical implications of abortion.
"AT A TIME IN MY LIFE WHEN I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS CRUSHING DOWN AROUND ME, and I needed something to believe, I believed you—the people of the pro-choice movement.. I believed you when you told me that it was only tissue. That it wasn’t a human yet. That it was only cells. I believed you when you said that it didn’t hurt. I believed you when you said that there is no such thing as post-abortion syndrome. I believed you when you told me that if I terminated my pregnancy, life would go back to normal... I chose abortion—because I believed you..., now having gone through two abortion experiences, I can only conclude that many of you have never made the choice that I did. If you had, wouldn’t you have told me more?"
