Angela McNeil of 11th Hour Counseling/ Zimbali writes: I am shocked to learn of a Marie Stopes Clinic in Ballito openly advertising: “Servicing our community with a full range of sexual and reproductive services”.
Do they know the serious side effects of abortion given the photo of these happy girls?
Women may feel relief at first but sooner or later the side effects will occur.
We counsel many ladies and men daily who have had abortions, even with the use of abortifacients, and the following side-effects occur. Men are affected too! Concerning abortion: Unfortunately, Abortions are always “unsafe” as it is unnatural and causing harm against your body, mind and spirit. It should only be considered when the mother’s own life is in danger and could die. There are always consequences and side effects no matter at which stage you have an abortion!
Possible emotional effects: Guilt and extreme deep regret, inability to forgive yourself and those who pressurized you, anger / rage towards your partner, 1ntense grief and nightmares (e.g hearing babies cry all night), depression, eating disorders in the long term, emotional numbness, sexual problems and fear in marriage, desire to become pregnant as a replacement for your loss, suicidal urges due to the above symptoms.
Possible effects on your body: Punctured uterus/womb during surgical abortion, excessive bleeding, infection and septicemia, extreme pain(exaggerated menstrual cramping for days), baby parts left inside causes septicemia and possible death/hysterectomy, shock and trauma, damaged organs, death due to bleeding and severe septic infection, unable to have more children in future, breast cancer at a later stage, miscarriage / still birth with future pregnancies, tubal pregnancies in future, premature births in future, pelvic inflammatory disease and hysterectomy due to damages.
Incomplete abortions: It is extremely important for you to get a medical checkup after an abortion as some baby parts could be left behind and make you bleed.
Do you know that the heart is already beating by 20 days, diaphragm forming and brain waves detected?
From fertilization this baby is already developing. This is not a BLOB.
I hope that our community is fully informed about abortion which is nothing less than the killing of unborn babies in the womb.
If these babies could speak they would beg for their very lives. So women think very carefully before you have an abortion.
