Women facing unplanned pregnancies have two options: to terminate the pregnancy or to carry the pregnancy to term. According to researchers on abortion in America, about 45 percent of all pregnancies were unplanned in 2011; about four out of ten of those were terminated by abortion. Women facing unplanned pregnancies have two options: to terminate the pregnancy or to carry the pregnancy to term. If a woman is less than 10 weeks along, she may be able to take the abortion pill (a medical abortion) if she chooses abortion. Also called RU486, this pill is a combination of two different medications taken over a few days to cause an abortion. Within the past ten years, a medical protocol was developed to reverse the progression of RU486; the procedure is called Abortion Pill Reversal, and that regime of using progestrone is now available at True Care.

What is “The Clap?”
While sitting at a local diner, you overhear a conversation directly behind you. “Did you know Ja--- (too garbled to hear the name) has the clap? His poor girlfriend. I knew he was bad news from the get go.
