Mothers Who Have Had Abortions At Higher Risk For Preterm Labor

Mothers Who Have Had Abortions At Higher Risk For Preterm Labor

A new study suggests that mothers who have had multiple abortions are more likely to have a premature baby.

Previous studies have shown that a mother who chooses to have an abortion puts her own health at risk. Now a study out of Finland shows that she puts other people at risk as well: her future children.

The researchers found that women who had multiple previous abortions were more likely to give birth before 28 weeks. That’s almost three months early.

“In terms of public health and practical implications, health education should contain information of the potential health hazards of repeat induced abortions, including very preterm birth and low birthweight in subsequent pregnancies,” said co-author of the study, Reija Klemetti, Ph.D., of the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Helsinki.

    WHEN A FEMALE HAS AN ABORTION, SHE WILL REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE – I GUARANTEE.

    NOW, MEDICAL RESEARCH SHOWS THESE FEMALES CAN LATER EXPERIENCE PREMATURE BIRTHS AND HAVE BABIES WITH “COMPLICATIONS.” DURING THIS ENTIRE ORDEAL, THAT EARLIER ABORTION SHOULD N-E-V-E-R LEAVE THESE NEW MOTHERS’ MINDS.

    What I saw here was mothers who had MULTIPLE abortions, which means to me that they have no access to other forms of birth control. This does NOT say every woman who has an abortion, usually will only happen once, is putting herself at risk of pre-term labor, nor does it say how many of those women may have been in that category BEFORE any abortions were performed. Too much information NOT there to go jumping to a lot of conclusions, other than what they state, that SOME Finnish women have had multiple abortions and seem to be more likely to have pre-term labor. And an aside for Christopher Allen Horton, not all women who have abortions regret the choice. Some of them regret the circumstances that forced them to look at abortion as a viable option, but the abortion itself may well have been a lifesaving event.

      “Chester,”

      I AM AGAINST ABORTION ONE-HUNDRED PERCENT. IF THE DOCTOR SAYS, EITHER HAVE AN ABORTION OR DIE, I WANT THE MOTHER TO DIE. THE LIFE OF THE FETUS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE PERSON CARRYING IT.

        You would DEMAND that a woman DIE in order to give birth?!? You are without a doubt one of the biggest haters of women that I have ever seen. You who will NEVER know the joy and terror of carrying life believe you have the right to make that choice for those of us who do? NO SIR YOU DO NOT HAVE THAT RIGHT! I have been blessed with 3 children and would have liked more but it was not to be. ONLY a woman will ever have to face the agonizing choice of whether or not she will be able to carry that precious new life to term. Unless and until you are privileged to walk in her shoes, you CANNOT second guess her choices!

        I am deeply saddened whenever any woman makes that horrible choice to abort. The best way to change that, though, is through education–not vilification of women. We need to educate our girls to the truth and reality of abortion so that they will choose life; so that they will view their bodies as their most precious possession and not allow some callow young man to convince them that sex is just another sport–with no harm no foul. But in the end, the only person who can and should make that most horrible of decisions is the woman who will have to live with the consequences of that decision. This is the essence of personal liberty and personal responsibility . . .

        And now I have a couple of questions for you. Are you married? If so, were you a virgin when you married? If not, are you still a virgin–or if widowed or divorced are you celibate? If you cannot answer YES to questions 2 and 3, then you are potentially one of the causes of abortion and a hypocrite of the first order!

        THE MOTHER HAD A LIFE BEFORE GETTING PREGNANT. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE FETUS’ LIFE HAS JUST BEGAN. IT IS SELFISH FOR A MOTHER TO WANT TO LIVE, BUT, WANTS TO KILL THE LIFE GROWING INSIDE HER.

        YES – “Tattoomama,” I FULLY ADMIT I DO NOT LIKE FEMALES. FEMALES ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND DESERVE TO HAVE HAPPY LIVES. IN MY PRIVATE LIFE, I DO NOT PURPOSELY ASSOCIATE WITH FEMALES; IT IS A WASTE OF TIME. IN PUBLIC, I AM CORDIAL WITH FEMALES.

        “Tattoomama,” I UNDERSTAND YOU FEEL YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO CONTROL YOUR OWN BODY. CURRENTLY, THE LAW IS ON YOUR SIDE – HOPEFULLY, NOT FOR LONG.

        “Tattoomama,” I AM AN ATHEISTIC HOMOSEXUAL.

      • GregS

        The life of the woman AND the life of the unborn child which she carries are BOTH important. The woman is the second victim of EVERY abortion.

      • Lisa

        It needs to be the woman’s choice instead of having it dictated to us. Glad I’m past menopause so I don’t have to worry over pregnancy or abortion. If men had to be pregnant for nine months and then give birth to a baby, they would be all for the right to get an abortion instead of having to go through pregnancy. A baby can be wonderful if you want a baby. They should be wanted or not be born into a situation where they aren’t wanted.

  • strighttothepoint

    I Disagree!!!but that,along with rape,would be my only two reasons to have an abortion!!!!that would have been a very hard choice for me,as well as anyone else,to make;”Your wife,or your Child!!!”.Thank god I never had to.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “strighttothepoint,”

      I AM TIRED OF PEOPLE USING RAPE AND INCEST AS LEGITIMATE REASONS FOR AN ABORTION. ALL FETUSES – REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES – MUST BE BORN. PERIOD.
