    I haven't had the procedure yet.

    I found out exactly a week ago that I'm pregnant. My long term boyfriend and I just moved into our first apartment together. Which we're just scraping by in financially. I never thought I'd be in this situation. We've always been careful. Obviously not careful enough. My initial...

    Last December, I had an abortion

    for all the right reasons. Today, my best friend had a baby. I have such a mix of emotions. I am happy and angry and sad and guilty. I just can't stop comparing myself and wondering if I did the right thing. I KNOW that my boyfriend and I made the right choice, but I don't FEEL...

    I had a termination last week

    after saying I would never have one. Until you're put in that situation and forced to make the hardest decision of your life, a person should not be judged. I was 12 weeks gone when I found out I was pregnant, I had just returned home after travelling with my partner. Both...

    I don't know how anyone has the cheek to judge

    any woman for choosing to abort their baby. Because at the end of the day it is their baby! And who has the right to tell them what they should and shouldn't do and what's best for them or the baby. For abortion, against abortion. I don't care the point is you shouldn't force...

    Spontaneous Abortions - Am I A "mommy Killer"?

    I have had three spontaneous abortions; or that is what my obstetrician called them.  Most people refer to them simply as miscarriages.  According to the "I hate abortion" group; this makes me a "Mommy Killer". I had my first in 1997, then...

    The hardest decision of my life. I waited until I was 17 weeks. I thought I was honestly going to keep it. As I thought about it more not the best decision. Only because I haven't finished college and not to mention me having a baby only 3 months prior. But I honestly get sad...

    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...

    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 had a surgical abortion 4 months ago

    and I feel it was the best decision I could have made. I feel no guilt at all. But holy **** did it hurt... It was such a weird pain or discomfort. I mean you feel the suction. It's really just interesting to me. I feel sorry for women who feel guilt over this issue.
