It is a woman’s right and power to control her own body and a personal decision whether or not to give birth especially given that rape and sexual assault are often not reported for personal reasons.
The easiest way to be in control of ones body is with nutrition. Eat whole fruits, vegetables, seeds, legumes, and grains for wellness of mind and body, strength, balanced hormones, and a healthy planet.
High dose Vitamin C or fruits and veggies high in Vitamin C every hour for the first 24-48 hours after conception can prevent implantation of fertilized egg into the uterus.
Some activities can put a pregnancy at risk such as vigorous exercise, water skiing, jacuzzi, or use of a water slide.
It’s estimated that half of pregnancies end in natural spontaneous abortion when the woman’s body determines that the embryo is not viable due to timing of fertilization and deterioration of egg or sperm. If menstruation is late and flow is heavy it may be a natural spontaneous abortion.
A service dog can help with stress and bring protection, joy, and love. Yoga and self defense classes can help too.
Practice self care, be strong and well, stand for the human right to healthcare, and know that you have super power

Update: I gave a free talk and easy food-prep demo at the Microsoft Store Theater at the Prudential Center in Boston! All seats were full. Lots of “logistics” involved. lol. I parked the company vehicle from my job right after work and walked to the train station with two gallon coconut oil buckets and a back-pack full of bananas, aloe, romaine, orange, avocado, paper plates, forks, napkins, cups, and an inversion blender (I did not think of using my suitcase on wheels that day). I took the train from Haverhill to Boston North Station, then Green Line subway to Copley and walked about half mile to the Prudential. I got there very shortly before 6:30pm and some people were already waiting. I gave a short talk, did the food demo, cleaned up, caught the train, walked to the vehicle, and drove home. I think people liked my talk and food demo. Rick Williams, Linda Balliro, Paul Something, some college students, some people my age, an older man, and more were there. It was fun for me and glad I pulled it together last minute since the speaker cancelled considering how busy my life is between my “real” job and home/biz. lol. I had stored the romaine in a cooler with freezer packs because I leave my house at 2pm. Typical of me, I forgot to ask someone to take a few photos because I usually just enjoy living in the moment, but will remember next time.
