I would like to thank all for their stories as they have allowed me to move closer to healing and recovery from my experience. Here is my story, I hope it may help someone else.
I have been married since 2006 and have two wonderfully awesome kids from prior relationships. My first child arrived when [...]
I lost my virginity. I used a condom. I took the morning after pill five hours after sex. (So maybe I was a little paranoid) (and if you’re unfamiliar with the pill, you can take it up to 72 hours after sex, but the sooner the better). With all my preventative measures, I still conceived. [...]
Dear Dr. Henry Morgentaler:
A few weeks ago I sat in my campus Health Services office for a routine checkup with my doctor (who seems to think that I should be institutionalized due to the stress and depression during University exams that I reported to him). After I fended off his notions of my instability, [...]
I had an abortion last week at the age of 23. I recently graduated from college and I’m not yet working and living at home with my parents. I was on the pill for 4 years. I ran out last month and tried to make an appointment to get more but they didn’t have anything [...]
It was April. I was 18 years old working full time and making 9 dollars an hour. I had been seeing this guy for a little over a year. I was set to go to college the following September, and my boyfriend had just gotten his car reposessed, and kicked out of his apartment. Hindsight [...]
I am 22 years old and I had an abortion on January 22, 2008. I was dating my boyfriend for only two months when I found out I was pregnant, although I had a feeling since the moment I conceived that I was pregnant. I was hoping that I was just over-reacting and over worrying, [...]
As a child my mother used to tell me about a working class neighbor in the 1950s (I grew up in England) who had a backstreet abortion that left her crippled. Afterwards she said she’d do it again because there was no way she could afford another child. This experience made my mother ardently pro-abortion, [...]
There isn’t much to tell really!
No fear! No dilemma! No painful decision to make. No guilt. No drama.
17 years ago I had an abortion. My period was late and I tested positive. At that time my husband and I weren’t ready to bring a child into the world. He drove me to the [...]
I had an abortion when I was 18 and I have never regretted doing so.
I was at university, and dating a man that I thought I could not live without. He was abusive and controlling but I was young.
We were using Hormonal Birth Control, but somewhere something went wrong and I got pregnant. [...]
At 17 I became pregnant after the 3rd time I had sex. It was awful, I felt so alone and the worst part is my boyfriend at the time left me as soon as he found out. So there I was, 17 ,a senior in high school, pregnant and alone. It was the worst feeling [...]
