"I am 26-years-old and a mother of two sons. Last november, we found out that we were pregnant. The pregnancy was unexpected. I cried so hard because I thought having another child would be too hard for both of us. My eldest son is sick and and was hospitalized twice in a month. We are in great debt and thinking of it made me come to a decision—an absolute nightmare. It was 31st of January when I..."

"I am 17. One month ago, I had an abortion. My story is not tragic. No one made me get the abortion. It’s only my mother and me in the house. My father has never been in the picture. I broke the news to my mom, and she gave me every option and said whatever I chose, she would support me. I told my best friend—the father of the accidental child we created—and he was supportive of any decision I..."

"It was the second quarter of my freshman year of university, and I was flourishing. I had amazing friends, earned top grades, and was the happiest I'd ever been. Long story short, I went to meet a friend in the middle of the big city nearby and got lost. I pulled over in a dark parking lot, thinking if I parked behind buildings, I'd be out of sight. Before I knew it, a middle aged man with a..."

"Thirty-six years ago, I was 16. My first love and I "PLANNED" on getting me pregnant. I lived in a HORRIBLE home environment—as do many others. So we thought, "Get pregnant, get married, get out!” It did not work out that way! We did become pregnant. My boyfriend left me alone to tell my mother, who looked at me like a scorned lover because she had been molesting me for years! That look still..."

"I'm 21 and have had one miscarriage and one abortion. When I was 17, I was a senior in school and was having unprotected sex... Although I was scared and saddened by the news, I told the father of my child, and we both decided to keep the baby. His family was very supportive. A couple of days after finding out we were having a boy, I started to feel bad cramps and pain. I started to bleed and..."

"When I was in my early 20’s, I had two abortions. They were within 9 months apart. I felt I could not take care of myself and a baby. The father of the baby wanted me to have the abortions. He was using drugs and could not keep a regular job. To make matters worse, I went to a physic, and she told me to be careful not to get pregnant because it was the wrong time. Then I ended up missing my..."

"I've been with my boyfriend for around 6 months now. A couple of weeks ago, I just didn't feel like myself. I started to get really moody, and all I wanted to eat was ice cream, all of the time. I missed my period for about 3 weeks, and I was having really bad stomach aches, so I decided to phone a doctor. She told me that I needed to take a home pregnancy test. I told her no, that could not be..."

"I recently graduated from college... I did it with a one-year-old child... When I found out this time about being pregnant, I was in the ER, and the nurse asked me how far along was. I said, “What are you talking about?!” She said, “…with the pregnancy.” I immediately started crying. All I could think about was already having a child. I still cannot find a good job, and I don't get financial..."

"I haven't yet had an abortion, but my boyfriend and I are considering it... I have yet to find out how far along I am. That happens this Wednesday. I told my boyfriend that I am pregnant and we discussed abortion. Then he asked if I was considering anything else, and I told him I was considering adoption—but fear I would get too attached. I am currently living on my own with a friend, struggling..."

"The moment I found out I was pregnant, I couldn't think about anything else. I'm 27-years-old and raising a 7-year-old boy pretty much by myself. My now ex-boyfriend didn’t show much support even though we lived together. My initial response was, “I’m not ready for another child at this point in my life.” But if that was the case, what were my options? That was December 22, 2013. On Jan 4th, it..."
