    I had an abortion the day

    after Valentines day 2014. I had just had a baby-who I love more than anything. I was in a stupid, bad relationship. He's horribly addicted to drugs and made my life a living hell. We never had money and he lied all the time about anything and everything. I will say that none of...

    A Positive Experience?

    I had a medical abortion a last week ago. The reason why I am writing this post is because before I went, I went onto the internet to read about people's experiences and to be honest it scared me to death!   It's a bit weird to explain an abortion as a positive experience...

    I was 23 years old when I had an abortion.

    It was the most difficult decision, but as it turned out it wasn't my choice. I am now 59 years old and still think of what happened. At the time I was living with my boyfriend. My doctor had recommended that I stop taking the birth control pill, because of having bad migraine...

    I had an abortion 6 years ago.

    I am happy to say that I have closed the door on this experience. I believe I stated that in my last story. So you're probably wondering why am I still here? It's simply because I want to continue to help others. I want women to find peace as I have and to know there is healing...

    When I was 17 I had an abortion.

    But I don't feel remorse for it? I feel like a bad person because I know I killed someone. But I wasn't ready to have a baby. I know I could have put the baby up for adoption, but I wasn't ready to actually have a baby inside me, to have another human growing and developing...

    What It's Like To Have An Abortion - My Story.
