    Why I stopped naming

    and writing letters to my unborn... Naming my unborn, didn't help me move forward with my life. Instead, it kept me holding on to a past that I needed to leave behind. I was not meant to be a mother back then. I did it because I was told that naming it and writing letters to...

    Problem-free Termination

    Just thought I'd post my experience. Having read some of the other stories, I feel relatively lucky about my abortion. I live in Australia and was in a committed relationship at the time. The diaphragm I was using must not have worked this one time, I don't know why (diaphragms...

    I made the mistake of telling my male best

    friend about it. He always tells me that he would support me no matter what choices I make.... clearly having an abortion was something he couldn't support. I told him 2-3 days ago and not a word from him.

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

    I used to be on the fence of abortion but leaned more towards pro-life. I'd visited tons of pro-life sites where I read horror stories of abortions gone wrong, read about the pain, read about the cold nurses, and the doctors who couldn't take it. I saw the pictures of partial...

    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...
