Question: abortion and pregnancy..please help


 bashar1533 - Sun Aug 26, 2007 10:54 pm

i have a very serious questions and i need some major help. I found out my gf was pregnant about 6-7 weeks ago after i saw two pregnancy tests that showed the pregnancy lines. After some major debates and talkin to her , the best decision we took was to have an abortion. She was unsure of this because her family but i came up with alot of money to give her (cash) in order to go to the clinic as well as take care of herself .She said she went to planned parenthood. She was realli upset and cussed at me alot after that , she said that it hurt alot and she would NEVER ever do it again. Well,after this she having nighttime sweats, she went to the follow up 2 weeks after and they told her she was still pregnant and the operation (surgical) was not successful . Now she doesnt want to go back to the same clinic and after going to two other drs, they recommended she goes to the hopital for a total surgery which will cost 5000 or she will have the baby. Wut is ur advice and does it happen?

My family wants to have written consent to talk to the drs bc they don't beleive her...can she sue the dr or what? I have seen some paperwork from planned parenthood showing the recovery room notes as well as the notes written about the procedure . I have also seen the ultrasound at 8 weeks now showing the baby. I am in a real dilemma and need some advice.

User avatar If you have seen the ultrasound I believe you can be quite certain she is pregnant. She will have to give permission if you or your family are to talk to the doctors about her situation.

I cannot give you legal advice. I do know that all medical procedures come with risks and in this case there is the risk that the procedure did not work. Most of the time we sign paperwork (consent forms) that state our understanding of the procedure and the possible adverse affects associated with it. We sign that we understand these things can happen, even despite all our best efforts.

It sounds like you have had the options explained to you and you will need to make a decision together about what you are to do.

After this is past, do check into reliable contraceptives.

Best wishes.
