What does abortion cost?

Abortion advocates often use finances to explain why women need to be able to legally kill their unborn child. They bemoan the plight of low-income women, who can’t afford to have another child — and need taxpayers to pay for abortions because they can’t afford that, either. What these same abortion backers don’t often mention, though, is what an abortion actually costs.

woman-pregnantHow much an abortion will cost a woman depends on how far along she is in her pregnancy. The National Abortion Federation gives general estimates of what a woman should expect to pay. Early in her first trimester, an abortion will cost somewhere between $350 – $500. As she progresses through the pregnancy, the cost will increase. After 20 weeks, she should expect to pay at least $1,000, if not several thousand dollars. Many women also have to travel to get an abortion, so they would need to add travel costs into their totals as well. This is why pro-aborts say that taxpayers need to fund abortion.

But abortion doesn’t just cost women financially. There are other costs, which the abortion advocates rarely mention. Abortion comes with enormous risks to women, risks they’re often never told about. Women might end up paying for their abortion in a number of other ways, whether they have to open their wallet or not.

These are just a handful of the risks that can come with abortion. Most women know how much they will have to pay for an abortion before they walk through the doors of the abortion clinic… but how many of them know just how much that abortion may end up costing them?

    I’m fully aware this only covers Australia’s statistics, but then again we don’t have Kermit Gosnell or Planned Parenthood sullying our doctor’s collective image.

      wow that “unbiased” information might as well have said “abortion is swell, its just like flossing your teeth”

      Abortion doesn’t harm most women emotionally, meaning alot of women ARE harmed emotionally. Why is this so taboo?

    Would be US-born citizens murdered by the outcome of Roe vs. Wade in 1973 would be between the ages of 0 and 40. If just half of those (ages 20-40) were allowed to live, we’d have 25-30 million more workers in this country right now. Illegal immigration would not be the problem that it is today, and the costs of deporting, medicating, feeding, and educating the immigrant workers that we have would be nonexistent. There would be no argument in Congress. We’d have enough people. Instead, we killed our workers in the name of convenience and made excuses that their lives would’ve been worthless, of no benefit to our nation, and costly for charities. If we need more workers to save money, we need to stop killing them to save money.
