    Not me! For those of you in this situation.

    I've been there. I've seen both sides. I had one abortion long ago. I am a nonjudgmental person who understands both sides. I can just listen and care if you need to talk.

    I just found out I am pregnant yesterday.

    I don't know what to do. It was a drunken irresponsible night with a guy I met 3 weeks ago. To give you a little bit of his background, he is 27 years old. He didn't graduate high school, he already has a 5 year old daughter. He is currently waiting a couple of a days to move...

    got an injection that stops the growth of the fetus and now I insert the 4 pills vaginally on Wednesday. I was wondering if anyone could tell me their experiences and the pain level? I'm 5 1/2 weeks. Thanks

    I have a dilemma, about getting an abortion

    or not. Firstly I am a Muslim and it is forbidden to have sex before marriage and is one of the deadliest sins. Getting an abortion is also a deadly sin, because it's taking away a life. However I would get kicked out of home if my parents found out I was pregnant, I won't be...

    My boyfriend changes his mind every other day about if he wants me to have it or not. At first he got so mad at me for even considering not having it. But now that I'm starting to have pregnancy symptoms it's getting harder and harder for me to think about aborting our baby. My...

    Not Because I'm Pregnant.
