I have had that procedure but I was knocked out and couldn't feel anything. I do remember waking up at one point but I couldn't feel anything and could not even open my eyes just could hear sounds and them talking. So I cant compare the pain but I do have child birth experience. I know a lot of people say child birth is unbearable etc... but I don't think it was that bad (and I've had it once with an epidural and once without). Having the baby itself is actually very relieving. When you found out its ready to push it really feels like you have to majorly go to the bathroom and just cant wait any longer. So pushing just makes it so much better. Even if you tear in my opinion it did not hurt very much because your concentrating on so much you barely notice it. The contractions are what hurts in labor. Think of them as a cramp but like triple the pain. Breathing will really help with the contractions pain. I found that I got more frustrated with people being in the room who wanted to have a conversation but would get agitated when I would stop for a few minutes. So set some ground rules for everyone that is going to walk into that room and it will make it all so much better.


I have never had an abortion but I have read that the pain is similar to child birth. It is basically the same process- your cervix is being dilated, but with an abortion it is being dilated much faster than with a natural birth. Labor is painful. You can always get an epidural. This will take ALL the pain away so that you can enjoy your labor!


ive not had that procedure, but i think if you prepare your mind you wont have a painful labor, women today are just to weak and accostemed to medication for the smallest owie. Congrats on your little one, and ignore the ignorant who want you to feel bad about your previouse desicion.


No because no matter what the circumstance I would never "terminate" my childs life.


im sure childbirth is worse.

Why is abortion not wrong?
I am pro-choice and here is why: 1. Whether or not you consider abortion "murder" is subjective. Everyone can have their own opinion on whether life begins at conception or not. But should your opinion force every woman who has an unwanted pregnancy to listen to you? No, it shouldn't. That's...

Do people really vote based on someone's stance on abortion?
I will base my vote on whether or not abortion is their main platform. There are more pressing problems in this country than if a woman can legally get an abortion.

About the low percentage of late term abortions... part 1?
I'm pro-choice, but I'm going to have to disagree with your opinion on this one. I personally know 2 women who had late-term abortions simply because they couldn't make up their mind about whether or not they wanted to have a baby. Then they both complained about how much more it cost them...

Why is abortion an ethical issue?
Ethic has several definitions, a few of them being: "a moral principle or set of moral values held by an individual or group" and "the principles of right and wrong that are accepted by an individual or a social group" and "a system of principles governing morality and acceptable conduct"....

Agree or Disagree the only valid reason to be anti abortion is because there is a long list of people who?
Disagree, sorry. That's only one reason, not the primary. I think it's completely barbaric. It butchers a woman's body and that is one of the primary reasons for me. While trumped as "medically safe," there are a host of complications, infections and psychological traumas a woman goes through...
