    Feeling Guilty As Due Date Approaches

    Oh I'm having such a rough time....I would be giving birth to my baby next month- every week I think about what I did and cry. I'm married, and we always wanted kids, but when I found out I was pregnant- it was the worst time ever. My husband had been out of work for almost 2...

    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...

    We should be together right now. Forget everything else. It's not important. You should still be content and curled in my belly. Perhaps even smiling in your slumber. I'd be smiling too, And you'd sense that somehow. You deserve to be alive. My decision was hasty and made...

    You are not a bad person

    for getting an abortion, it doesn't matter if: You were assaulted. Your birth control failed. You weren't on birth control at all. There is a medical issue. You don’t want children. You already have children and can’t handle another. You aren't ready. You don’t want to be...

    I've always wanted children. And my boyfriend and I had talked about having kids. But we are poor, and not responsible enough to care for this child. He wants an abortion, but isn't forcing me to choose that. He said he will agree with whatever I choose. We would have amazing...
