"I was in my 2nd month of beauty school when I found out I was pregnant.... I took a pregnancy test on my break, and it turned out to be positive. I took 6 home pregnancy tests and two at a doctor’s office. My boyfriend was so happy that I was pregnant, and I was also. But then I started to think about me finishing school and how I would be able to support this child. Last August, I got the..."

"It was the summer before my sophomore year of college, and I had been dating an older guy for a little over two years. He was 24 and I was 19. I was attending Colorado Christian University and was only home in New Mexico for the summer. My relationship with my boyfriend, to say the least, was extremely unhealthy. We would stay in contact while I was in Colorado, but we usually only saw each..."

"I am 39 years old. I met this great guy on match.com, and nine months later I discovered I was pregnant. I got scared; he got drunk and said I did it on purpose. I got offended and decided not to include him in the decision making. Instead, I relied on advice from friends and relatives. Two relatives I trusted the most led me to abortion. I dumped the guy and went for a procedure the next day...."

"I recently found out I was 7 weeks pregnant. Two weeks ago, I had an abortion. I'm 20, and even though I knew it was the right thing to do, I don't know how I'm going to get through this. The man whose child it is made it quite clear that he wouldn't be around if I were to have a child, and so that was one of my reasons to go through with it—alongside not being able to financially support a..."

"I'm not sure where to start. Maybe 11 years ago. My ex-husband and I were split up. He was a cheater, and he had asked me and my two children to leave. So we did. We were split up for at least 9 months. Right before Christmas that year, he came to me with stories of how he missed his family and wanted us back. I only went back because I actually felt sorry for this man. So we packed up the house..."

"On this day, November 11, two years ago in 2011, I aborted my lovely son. I have already written my story on April 21, 2013. I come back on this site often to find comfort when I’m grieving over the death of my child. Coming on this site allows me to feel as though I am not alone. My boyfriend begged me to abort, and my sister convinced me it was the best thing to do. My boyfriend had been..."

"Two years ago today, November 11, 2013, I had an abortion. It still hurts just as much now today as it did the day it happened. This abortion was not something I wanted to do, but my boyfriend at the time insisted he knew what was better for me than I did and told me if I didn't do it he would leave me, and I would be alone. I was so wrapped up in the relationship, I didn't want to let him down,..."

"I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant in July. When the test came back positive, I was so happy! I have a 5-year-old already, but I have wanted to have another baby for so long. At the time, my boyfriend and I had just broken up, and we weren't talking. I tried calling, but he ignored me, so I sent him a picture of the positive test. He still ignored me. I had my friends speak to him about it. He..."

"I found out I was pregnant in March, 2013. I was excited but scared. I already had a 3 year old and was separated from his father, but I was also excited because I felt I was doing this pregnancy differently—by being married first, then getting pregnant. I remember going to Walmart and buying a cheap pregnancy test. It was right around the time they put out all the decorations for Easter. I also..."

"My story is a bit graphic, but I feel like it's important to tell. I had been in a lengthy relationship of which I have a daughter who is four. I was in a downward spiral when my “Romeo” came along: built, tall, tanned, and extremely handsome. He had his eyes on me. I, for the first time, went out on my guy (after 12 years) and after only a few hook ups, I was late. I had been absolutely..."
