  •  Actually no. (0+ / 0-)

    I had an IUD (which failed). I sometimes skipped periods. It was the 2nd missed period & morning sickness .that told me. Luckily, I didn't have a monetary problem. Also, luckily, getting my tubes tied wasn't an issue.

    If it's an abused teenager scared and in denial -- and with road blocks -- the weeks can be lost easier than you think. Moiv has told horror stories, among others.

    I support "no abortion laws" without apology. Medical standards should be sufficient. Especially if abortion is reintergrated into general OB-Gyn practice, so Gosnell stuff won't happen (it doesn't happen in Canada).

    30 years ago, abortion wasn't such an issue (!!) -- but if it was I probably would have taken pregnancy tests, to be sure, when I skipped periods. But with the working poor becoming a larger percentage, and the middle class being pushed down, it's grim.

    Giving birth (giving life) should be a gift not an obligation or women and poor people are 2nd class by definition
