From a woman who had a medical (by pill) abortion:
“I had my medical abortion a few days ago at slightly less than 8 weeks. It was the most painful experience ever in my life. On top of emotional pain, when the second pill was taking effect, I had the most indescribable excruciating pain for more than 6 hours. It almost killed me… I wonder if child birth is even more painful than this… There was just so much pain that I could’t even cry… Maybe I should have chosen surgical.”
You can find this quote on LiveJournal.
The girl who posted this also says:
I feel very empty now, the presence of my baby is gone… It just feels so “different” I’m not sure if it’s a good or a bad thing… I’m calm but something is missing…. One thing I know for sure is that this will forever be a part of my life and I will always be tied to the father of my baby emotionally.
If she already feels this type of grief and loss so soon after her abortion, one wonders how she will feel as the years go by and she begins to process the loss of her child. Many women only begin to grieve for their babies long after they had their abortions. Hopefully, she found healing.
