The first one was in approximately 1968 and was illegal. It cost $1,200.00! I was to be let off at a particular corner in Newark, NJ, and was to wear white gloves. I then got picked up in a limo, with another girl in the back seat already. We were taken to a high-rise apartment [...]
I started having sex when I was 16. I was one of the unlucky ones and maybe the tenth time I had sex, the condom broke, and I got pregnant. I was so terrified at what was going to happen to me (I wasn’t living at home at the time) and I’d been with my [...]
I had an abortion nine years ago, and I do not regret it.
I was 22 years old and was in the first week of my first “real” job after college when I found out I was pregnant by my long-term boyfriend. In the following two weeks, my boyfriend let me know he had cheated [...]
I suspected that I was pregnant a few days before my period was due. I have always had a very regular menstrual cycle, including PMS. In late April during the week before my period was due my cramping, breast pain and tiredness was so severe that I knew something wasn’t right. I waited until the [...]
First of all, I’d like to thank you for having this site. I have sent many many people to view it (including a girl sitting next to me in the waiting room of Planned Parenthood!) and I think it’s a much-needed resource.
I had my abortion in May of 2007. I had been feeling ridiculously [...]
I am a thirty-three year old mother; I have a thirteen-year-old and a two-year-old. Both were unplanned; there were several abortions between the two babies (with the same partner). That sounds awful to a lot of people. I remember once reading, when I was very young, that Marilyn Monroe had something like thirteen abortions; another [...]
My name is Elizabeth. I am thirty four years old, and I had my second abortion two and a half weeks ago. Actually, and I feel very stupid, the two abortions happened in the same year. They were very different experiences both emotionally and physically. Because of this I urge all women who are pregnant [...]
I realized I was pregnant on my 18th birthday. I knew before I took a pregnancy test because I had been extremely nauseous for several days. I was a senior in high school and had already been accepted to college with a full scholarship. Adoption wasn’t something I even considered, mainly because I was constantly [...]
I am 18 years old and just recently had a medical abortion. I was dating my boyfriend for about a year and had been on various birth control methods (pills, nuva ring, etc.) While taking seasonale I noticed mood swings and depression that started to interfere with my normal life. I decided I would take [...]
I am 25, and I have had one abortion. It is the best thing I have ever done.
My husband and I have been together for over three years, we love each other very much, we have a beautiful home, and almost everything we ever wanted. I say almost because we are young, there are [...]
