    This is my story, its alittle long but this was the most difficult decision of my life!  I struggled with the decision to abort or not abort for 5 weeks and although I miss my baby dearly, I know I made the right decision for the situation I'm in.  I hope that this...

    LIKE IT OR NOT ABORTION IS A CHOICE

    I find it really aggravating that the women that come here looking for support are bombarded with jerks who come here with their own personal opinions about what a woman should do with her body. I came here on this forum today and saw a lot of bs that had nothing to do with...

    I fell in love with him

    when I was 14 & he was 17. We had a strong relationship until I moved to a new town. I left the ghetto to live in a better town where my family and I could feel safe. Senior year in high school was stressful filled with college applications, searching for scholarships, and...

    that I think about you even though I did what I did? I took the easy route out, I was young & obviously selfish. I still am young but oh the regrets.. Sure, your daddy is ignorant and always will be. You were my child and a huge part of me. Is it wrong that I did what I did? My...

    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 was very young when I had an abortion!

    This would be my 1st time actually coming out & admitting it whether it's anonymous. I knew it was the right choice, there was no way I could raise a baby at 14 years old! My family would have never let that one down. I made the mistake of asking to see the baby when they were...

    January 1 of this year changed my life.

    I found out I was pregnant. As a senior in college about to graduate in a few months I never thought that in a million year I would have an abortion. I'm a Christian, a college senior, I have 5 jobs, I'm super ambitious, many accolades and accomplishments, and coming from where...

    I found out I was pregnant

    while I was at the doctor's office for a routine exam. At that point, I was ten days late, I felt exhausted all the time, my breasts were swollen and painful, and I had been queasy and vomited that very morning. Despite those symptoms that now seem so obvious to me, I was...

    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...

    I've had two abortions in high school,

    and before anyone judges they both were by the same guy and we're still together and I'm a sophomore in college. We both weren't financially capable of taking care of a child and our parents would have pled us apart because of the incident. So we decided abortion was our only...

    I've found so much the closer I get to what

    would have been my due date the more I just wish I could see my little bee. The not knowing is what makes it so much harder than the experience but I've never stopped feeling the pain.

    I had my abortion last March 2015.

    I didn't know what to do at first. I am a university student, living abroad, and away from my family. I wasn't sure what to do at first. I had my final exam and I missed almost a month of period so I thought stress was the cause. After waiting several days, I did the pregnancy...

    and I am haunted by the worst decision I've ever made in my life every single day. I have had a sort of on off relationship/friendship with the dad, who point blank told me he didn't want it even though he already has a son. I now resent both of them due to the way the father...

    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...

    at 8 weeks + 2 days. I already have 4 children, and with all of those, I had reasonably quick births. I had recently separated from my husband, and started seeing an old friend I have known for almost 20 years (all through school and beyond). We had only slept together twice...

    yesterday. The cramps were unbearable. I was curled up in my bed crying, even after taking the vicodin they gave me. As far as I know, only one of my friends has been through an abortion, so I haven't felt like there's a lot of other places I can go to talk about this. Now that...

    I don't care what any of the "pro lifers" say.

    ..I've had 2 abortions. My first was when I was 13 because I was in no position to have a baby. My second was a year later. I still didn't feel ready. A year later I gave birth to my first daughter because I finally felt I was ready for a baby.
