"I am writing today because two years after aborting my God given gift, I am once again grieving my one and only son. I got pregnant when I was sixteen years old with twins, and although I was young, there was nothing that would stop me from having my children. And I thank God I did not abort them. They are now three. In August of 2011, I found out I was pregnant. At the time things we not going..."

"At age 16, I was married. A few years later I became involved with a married man. We had an affair that produced a daughter, which I passed off as my husband’s child. Our affair lasted 10 years, before my first marriage dissolved and I married this man. During those 10 years I had become pregnant four other times and all four times I aborted them. It wasn’t long after we married that I became..."

"You may think you know what I’m about to say, but you don’t know my story. I decided to share it because my heart bleeds for the many, many women, children and families that are affected as a result of having an abortion. It’s far more complex than what you might believe... My reasons for being pro-choice were based largely on fears and ‘what ifs’ of possible scenarios that convinced me I needed..."

"I live in London and 3 years ago, at the mature age of 29 years old, I had an abortion. I can number several reasons here why it seemed like the best thing to do at the time: financial situation, my boyfriend, my living conditions, complete ignorance of benefits and help, etc, and so I legally looked for help in a termination clinic. I was 3 weeks pregnant at the time, and the appointment was..."

"In 1970, abortion was illegal, so the state where I lived had exceptions and protocol. I had to go to a psychiatrist to prove that I would be an unfit mother, thus justifying an abortion. Based on his recommendation, the abortion was finalized. My mother arranged everything and explained the conditions to me. I believed I was proven unfit. I agreed to have my baby killed, not really knowing I..."

"At the age of 15, I thought I was in love with this guy from high school. He convinced me to be intimate with him and after our first sexual encounter, I became pregnant. I was terrified. I didn't know how to tell my mother but she somehow already knew. She told me that I could not have this baby so she took me to a clinic. I still remember the smell. I remember laying on that table not really..."

"I was 19 when I had an abortion. I was in the Army. I was finally so happy after 7 years of being depressed and suicidal... I was dating someone who was abusive, and I didn't tell him I was pregnant... I made the mistake of telling my sister-in-law. She told my brother... The next thing, I knew my family called harassing me, calling me a whore, a tramp, a slut, and a horrible disappointment...."

"I had an abortion on the 21st of March, 2013. I regretted it before, during and now. I didn't have a say in what I wanted to do. My mother said, "this is what you will do," and as much as my boyfriend and I told her our plans, she would pass them off as "stupid." During that time, I couldn't stop my self from going to extremes to get some memory om my baby, a 13-week, 4-day old who I named Amy...."

"I had an abortion in high school. I didn't know how to explain how I felt or what I was feeling... Now I explain it as being raped. I took my clothes off, I was put under during the surgery, then I woke up in another bed with my clothes on. Who put my clothes on? Who put me in this bed? What happened during surgery? I was young and didn't ask these questions... I got pregnant from a long-time..."

"My beautiful angel baby, I am thinking of you today. It's been 5 years since I let you go. I feel awful, I always think of you—what you would have been in life. If you would have had my features or dad's. Have blonde hair or be good at singing. It was one of the hardest things I did, well, it was the hardest thing I did. I went 3 times and couldn't do it. I saw a side view of your ultrasound..."
