    Pro-life Centers Posing As Abortion Clinics And How To Avoid Them

    IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN ABORTION CLINIC, BE CAREFUL OF THESE ANTI-CHOICE CENTERS. When I was looking for a doctor to perform my abortion, I stumbled across a lot of anti-choice groups posing as abortion clinics. There would be receptionists and volunteers dressed in scrubs so...

    Successful Herbal Abortion

    I just want to share that after much introspection, I decided to have an abortion 3 months ago. I used a combination of Pennyroyal, Blue and Black Cohosh tinctures for 4 1/2 days every 4 hours. I thought it would never end, every trip to the bathroom was a nightmare. But I'm...

    People call me baby killer

    and murderer. They have the nerve to say "you should have kept your legs closed" but they know nothing about what happened to me. I was raped at age 14. I didn't "spread my legs" I had my virginity forcefully taken from me and I became pregnant. I was unable to get plan b. At 14...

    I'm 18 years old and a waitress.

    I was oblivious for awhile and had no concern that I was pregnant at all. I was taking my pill and didn't feel it was possible but after some time I started to worry as I hadn't had a period. So I took a pregnancy test which then came back positive 3+weeks. I didn't know how I...

    .. I think my reasons to not have the baby were mostly selfish reasons.. I didn't want us to struggle or compromise having fun in our young lives.. Me and my boyfriend knew it would call for a lot of sacrifices and we were 100% sure we were ready for all of that. But it is bad to...

    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 know it sounds heartless but I don't regret it one bit, I was not in a position to have a baby, it wouldn't have been fair. Don't get me wrong I love children and would someday have one but that time I fell pregnant, it wasn't the right time, it was an accident as my...

    When I was 17, I was raped by a few different

    men. I got pregnant. I was alone and afraid, so I decided to have an abortion. But, where I live, if you're under 18, you need a parent's consent. I couldn't let my family find out, so I gave myself an abortion. I've kept this a secret for years.
