I’m 23 years old with what seems like everything going well for me. I recently got engaged to a wonderful man who I’ve been dating for 3 years. We recently bought our first house together and are planning our wedding. I graduated from college a few years ago and have a great career [...]
My husband started physically assaulting me the night before our wedding. I reasoned to myself that it wasn’t a big deal. It was just a shove. He was under a lot of stress. Besides, our guests were sleeping in their hotel rooms, expecting to attend the beautiful ceremony I planned; so, I pushed “the incident” [...]
Early one morning I decided to use the HPT that was in our bathroom, I wasn’t late, I hadn’t all of the sudden become sick, I just had a feeling and it was right, within minutes the word ‘Pregnant’ appeared. I felt like my world had just stopped. I went back to bed and told [...]
When I was 17 and nearing the end of high school, I found out I was pregnant. I had a boyfriend and I thought I loved him. At first, I thought I wanted to have it. I was very sick and had an allergic reastion to the anti-nauseau medicine they gave me. If I wanted [...]

In 1997, I was in college and met up with a much younger guy. It was purely a sexual relationship at first, but then I was stupid enough to confuse sex with love. Things were rosy at first, as first attractions often are, and then his true manipulative colors started coming out, and I became [...]
Hello my name is Tash and I am 17 years old; I just had an abortion 3 days ago. This is my story.
I met my boyfriend in the city, being a country girl I was drawn to his maturity and personality, he let me hear everything I wanted to hear, and I quickly fell [...]
I was raised by parents that were very strict. So strict and old-fashioned that even as a 22 year old, I was too ashamed to tell them that I was pregnant and unwed. I had always been pro-choice, so I was thinking about abortion was nothing new for me. I am still a firm believer [...]
I was only fifteen years old, and my boyfriend at the time, “Chase,” was eighteen. We had been together on and off since I was fourteen and my aunt and uncle (legal guardians) hated him. He was a liar, a cheater, and I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. I think I had sex [...]
I had an abortion in the 1980′s when I was a young woman. I am almost 50 now and even though it isn’t a subject I talk about, I am not sorry I did it.
I was 23 and working as a model and there was no way I could have kept the baby because [...]
