I was 22, single, and I had an abortion.
I was with my boyfriend for 4 months, and everything was going swimmingly. We were having sex a few weeks after we started dating, and never had the talk about contraception. He assumed that I was on the pill; I assumed that I couldn’t get pregnant. [...]
I knew as soon as it happened that I was pregnant. I waited until the day I expected my period (I’m very regular) to take a test. As I wanted to keep it private until I knew for sure, I went to the ladies’ room at McDonald’s on a Sunday morning and sure enough, for [...]
My name is Monica, and I had an abortion a year-ago during my last year of college.
I conceived while on birth control, after three years of consistent use. The strange thing was that even though I was on the pill, I kind of knew only a few days later. After an over-the-counter test, I [...]
I’ve always been pro-choice, and I always figured that if I was young and not ready and I got pregnant, I would just get an abortion. For me, there was no other choice. But there was no way I’d get pregnant, because who does that really happen to?
My period was always irregular, I never [...]
Hello, my name is Monica and after reading stories at INS for a while now, I thought that I would post mine. I feel that my story is unique in that I have experienced raising children and adoption and still choose abortion, I hope that it will be posted and help others with their decision.
My name is Molly, I found out I was pregnant about 3 weeks ago. So it puts me at 9 weeks and 3 days or so. I just made my appointment for my first abortion today. It did take me a few weeks to decide what I’d like to do. I’ve never liked children, never [...]
I would like to tell my story. I’m sure it’s not much different from other women’s stories. To tell the truth, I can’t remember what year I had my abortion, but it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’m not at all sorry I did it. I was divorced. My son [...]
Thank you so much for the opportunity to tell my story. I am 26 years old and live in the USA. I have had two abortions, one surgical at 18 and one medical at 25. Both were performed when I was about 5-6 weeks pregnant. I was 16 when I became sexually active and used [...]
I always knew I didn’t want to have children. I stopped worrying years ago about whether this made me abnormal, or selfish — it doesn’t. Some people want children and some people just don’t, and I’m one who just doesn’t.
Consequently, I’ve always used birth control too. I guess that’s one of the things that [...]
I was 19 and in college. I was seeing a guy who was more of a distraction from schoolwork than a relationship. We didn’t have much to talk about but we didn’t piss each other off so there never was much reason to end it.
The condom fell off one night. He didn’t bother to [...]
