Lisa Ling Talks About Miscarriage

Did Fear of Miscarriage Cripple Your Pregnancy Joy?

Life isn't fair. While some women experience a seamless nine months, other moms-to-be have their anticipation end when the pregnancy abruptly terminates. In a recent interview set to air on Friday, journalist Lisa Ling talked about having a miscarriage. She said:

We actually [hadn't] been trying that long. I don’t know that I took it as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast. But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart.

Ling fears it will happen again. Since approximately one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, the worry isn't uncommon. Did you feel the same way?

That is so sad, and it yet another reason why abortion makes me so sad - so many women want nothing more than to be able to have and give their love to a child, and yet so many women murder their children instead of giving them up for adoption so that others can be mothers. I know; people don't like to hear it, but I have to say it. I've never been pregnant, but I am definitely fearful of having a miscarriage. I have many friends and relatives who have miscarried, some more than once, and I have seen how much pain it has caused them. My friend is currently five months pregnant about six months after having had a miscarriage, also at five months. She's now on bed rest, and, even though she is trying to stay positive, I am sure that she is always thinking about it...
