Herbal Abortion?

Hello there everybody!!! It has been a while since my last post. Can’t say I’ve been busy cuz I’d be lying and that would be bad! I’ve just been super lazy 🙂

Now I realise the weirdness that is my topic of today but believe it or not its true! Now let me start by explaining WHY I decided to discuss herbal abortion today. I was handed a leaflet by a gentleman in the street which I hung up on my wall. You see, for a few years now the people of Ireland have been fighting for abortion rights, thousands of women have to travel to the UK every year from Ireland to get legal abortion procedures performed on them. I know many people out there are against abortions but, hear me out, this post is entirely non-biased and I will not be explaining the procedure in detail.

So here goes…!

Herbal abortions (or DIY abortions) have been thought to be around since before the 8th century AD, information was passed down from mothers to daughters. From the early 1300’s up until the 1800’s possessing such knowledge of herbs which cause a woman to miscarry/abort was dangerous. Anyone caught by the authorities at the time were considered witches and were tortured to death!

Also, women believed sitting over a pot of boiling onions would induce an abortion! Other techniques involved massage, pointy objects and administration of abortifacient herbal pessaries.

The success rates for herbal abortions are between 30 and 80 percent, and are effective only within the first trimester of pregnancy. This drastically drops as the pregnancy continues.

Typically used ingredients include:

Angelica

Black Cohosh

Blue Cohosh

Cotton Root Bark

Evening Primrose

Parsley

Pennyroyal

Pineapple (ya i know WEIRD!)

Tansy

Vitamin C

Most of the above ingredients work by either stimulating intense contractions of the uterine wall to dislodge the foetus, or by way of poisoning the foetus, not allowing it to thrive. I hope this post was intellectually stimulating for your taste 🙂 I always say there is no harm in learning something new everyday, as the saying goes! Thank you for reading!

A word of advice: Many young women all over the world find themselves in the situation of a crisis pregnancy, I only have one thing to say (and please bear in mind, I AM NOT JUDGING YOU!), we all make mistakes, its only human of us to, however;

” Live your life before you start another”

P.S. I would advise against performing any at home abortion procedure without the advice of a professional. I accept no responsibility for anyones silly idea that this piece is highly informative. Please use protection!
