In a world in which one hears of parents flinging children off cliffs and bridges, I cannot be convinced that abortion is wrong.
Mine was twelve years ago. I am always conscious that I could have an 11 year old child, but I am not plagued with regret. When I see struggling parents, I know [...]
I am an ordained Christian minister and have had two abortions. I am very glad that I did. I feel that I served God in these hard decisions. One was when I was young and married to the wrong man. The second was after I had three children and became pregnant with a child six [...]
In 1971 I was a very smart girl who still managed to find herself pregnant. I grew up in a large family and I was the clever one who would go to college. But I also thought I was in love with a boy and one thing led to another. We ended up having unprotected [...]
By late November of 1998, I had been seeing my boyfriend for only a few months. I was 20, had just moved out of my parents house into my own apartment. I was also on the pill and my boyfriend used condoms. One night, the condom broke. I thought nothing of it since I was [...]

I am nineteen, and just returned home from a year-long volunteering and traveling stint in various parts of the U.S. I was in a volunteering program with hundreds of other young adults, and I had an unofficial boyfriend who was also in the program. We were basically making no money. We were also originally from [...]
I had just turned 19 and had gone on a week-long vacation with my boyfriend. When we returned I realized I was late with my period. I took a home pregnancy test and my worst nightmare came true–pregnancy. I had my mind made up the whole time what I was going to do, but until [...]
I never thought I would say it, but I just had a wonderful abortion experience! My previous abortions have been either uncomfortable or unpleasant and twice, unwanted, though I have never felt guilt. I have two lovely children born at home with excellent midwifery care. My younger is only fifteen months old. No birth control [...]
