I am 20 years old, I had an abortion and I’m not sorry. I had been with my boyfriend for almost three years when I became pregnant. My insurance had just switched me to generic birth control pills, and though I was taking them, I became pregnant (later my ob/gyn told me that generics only [...]
When I was 17, in my senior year of high school, caught up in planning for college, I got pregnant.
My best friend had set me up with her boyfriend’s buddy, and I had gone out with him for a few months. He was a bit older (22) and, I learned from my friend, a [...]
I had my first abortion in 2003 at age 33. After quitting a high-paying job out of exhaustion and burnout and living off my savings and part-time jobs for a few years, I made the ill-considered decision to move out of state to the other side of the country following a guy who had been [...]
Just over one year ago, on May 19, 2003, I had an abortion. I was 20 years old, a sophomore in college, and in a long-term relationship. Although my boyfriend and I had been dating for over 3 years, we were totally unprepared to handle a pregnancy, both financially and emotionally.
I pretty much knew [...]
It was back in 1969–I was dating the man that I am now married to and now we have 5 children. I found out I was pregnant and neither of us were in any way ready for a baby–I was 18 and he was 20. This was before abortion was legal and I had no [...]
Hello, my name is Connie, I am 55 years old, I have had two abortions and I am NOT sorry. I also ended up having a daughter I didn’t really want but I will get to that a little later. The first abortion was when I was 17 years old, back in 1971, before Roe [...]
First I would like to say Thank You to all the women who have shared their stories….
I found out I was pregnant on June 18, 2006. I have been an abortion and women’s rights advocate for as long as I can remember- but I never thought I would be faced with such an agonizing [...]
I’ll preface my story by stating that I was raised Catholic. I attended Mass every Sunday and attended Catholic schools in Montana. Interestingly enough, although my mom is a practicing Catholic, she’s pro-choice. I’ve always been considered a “good girl.” I was a straight-A student and had a full academic scholarship to an engineering college. [...]
I have 10 month old twins, am happily married, educated and have a good job. And I had an abortion 6 weeks ago. I am someone I thought would never have to make that decision. I’m not still in school or single or promiscuous; not a “troubled” person; not any of the things I always [...]
It’s now been 4 weeks since I had an abortion. At 25, finding out I was pregnant made me feel completely stupid for being so careless.
I found out on a Sunday, but I remember that I had gone a week feeling different and trying to bury the thoughts deep in my mind. My body, [...]
