Planned Parenthood – The Natural Way

Women have been making their own herbal “morning after pills” for thousands of years

No matter what your stance on abortion, I think most of us can agree having children we can’t afford to give decent lives to is not ideal.

I personally changed my stance from staunchly pro-“life” to passionately pro-choice, which I now feel is the position that supports quality of life over quantity.

However, I personally hate the idea of a clinical abortion. It’s hard on your body, expensive and can be emotionally traumatic. So I was delighted to find this awesome little website empowering women to give themselves the natural version of the morning-after pill and/or induce miscarriage later on in the first trimester with herbs, diet and exercise.

I’m not guaranteeing it’s going to work for everyone — it didn’t work for one of my friends once — but, to me, it’s worth a shot. You can always resort to a clinical abortion later if necessary.

(DISCLAIMER: THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT INTENDED TO BE MEDICAL ADVICE) encourages women to approach natural abortion from three main angles – herbs, diet and exercise. Below are examples of some of the methods they recommend, but please make a donation to their website for more detailed information and instructions and to help their organization get the info out to women who can’t afford it.

Also, A Woman’s Book Of Choicesis a classic, invaluable resource educating women that they have all kinds of safe, time-tested options other than “a coat hanger.”


    • Vitamin C –¬† 6000-10,000 mg per day, until your period starts.
    • Rue (Rutin) – 500-1000 mg per day, until your period starts. This helps you absorb the Vitamin C.
    • Ginger Root Tea
    • Aloe vera
    • Angelica
    • Ashwaganda (good for fertility, but in high doses, induces miscarriage)
    • Barberry
    • Basil Oil
    • Black Cohosh
    • Bloodroot
    • Buckthorn
    • Cinnamon
    • Clove
    • Comfrey
    • Cotton Root Bark
    • Fennel
    • Feverfew
    • Milkweed
    • Mugwort
    • Queen Anne’s Lace seeds
    • Sage
    • Tarragon
    • Trillium (Beth Root)


  • Avocado
  • Coffee
  • Figs
  • Fresh ginger
  • Juniper Berries
  • Papaya (green)
  • Parsley
  • Pineapple (other fruits high in Vitamin C couldn’t hurt either)
  • Pomegranate
  • Rhubarb
  • Weight loss-inducing exercise.
  • Bouncing, hopping, skipping or jumping.
  • Waist-twisting movements.
  • Exercise in heat or until body is overheated.
  • Exercise to point of exhaustion.

Additional tips

  • Increasing body temperature (jacuzzi, sauna, hot drinks/soups, blankets, exercise)

  • Sexual arousal (this section is really cool, but I’ll let you read about it on the website)
  • Yoga (specific stretches listed on website)

I have personally used a combination of the following the handful of times I’ve had a pregnancy scare over the last 6 years, and keep them on hand for whenever I might need them next:

My daughter was the result of a broken condom (go figure). We’ve never used a condom since and never had a problem. My partner now practices ejaculation control in conjunction with the pull-out method, and we’re extra careful around ovulation.

But the four of five times we’ve had a close call, I began taking all of the above in high doses immediately, and continued to do so daily until my period started about two weeks later.

What I like best about the herbal “morning-after” method is I never even know whether I was pregnant or not. At worst, I was preventing a fertilized egg from implanting itself onto my uterine lining or shedding a lining with a two-week-old embryo.

I haven’t used “the pill” in over a decade and refuse to. The synthetic hormones in birth control pills and “morning-after” pills are associated with low libido, depression, weight gain, headaches, increased blood pressure, certain types of cancer, yeast overgrowth and B-vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

To me, condoms suck, and as evidenced by my daughter, they don’t always work.

To each their own, but I for one am grateful to have this ancient, hidden knowledge in my tool box.
