    It's been about five months

    since I had an abortion. It hasn't been an easy experience. My boyfriend and I agreed to not have a child because we are both in school and simply not ready to be parents. He is the love of my life and we have been dating close to 6 years now. Our relationship has suffered...

    I had an abortion on the 27th of April 2015.

    I'm only 17 and this is where people start to judge.. I have been with my boyfriend 2 years now and every single time we had sex we made sure either one of us was protected, except unfortunately condoms aren't 100% effective. I remember on Christmas Eve, being sick and I just...

    Had a dream about my abortion last night

    and it ruined my day today. In reality I have let go of my baby and my baby's "father" but my subconscious is haunting me! I am trying to do all the right things, but it seems like nothings working.

    I had an abortion and I'm fine.

    I do not regret and never will. Because I made the right decision. I knew I was making the right decision, 7 years ago. And I still feel the same. So people can say and hope for me to feel bad about my decision. And people can talk all that BS negativity to me. What they say...

    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...

    My name is Jessica and I am almost 24 years old.

    When I was 16/17 I had an abortion because of more than one reason. I was in an abusive relationship and was too young to care for a child. Years later, I became engaged to my current fiance and we had our daughter, Ariya in September, 2013. She is the light of my life and I...
