As far as physical problem go I think that scarring is the biggest thing. My friend had an abortion a few years ago. The emotional and mental problems that she had along with it were the worst for her. Before making the decision your should research possible problems associated with an abortion and make sure that this is what you want to. There is no going back. Abortion will stick with you for the rest of your life. Just pray about it.
Depends on what method of abortion is used. There are medically induced abortions that do not carry the same risk of scarring and weakening of the cervix that surgical abortions sometimes do.
In general, the risk of scarring and damage to the cervix is no more that what might be encountered by women who have a D&C after a miscarriage. It is generally a very safe procedure that should little to no permanent physical effects, if done in a safe, professional setting.
