"Living in New York, I had what you call a wild life. Every weekend from Thursday to Sunday I would go out drinking and partying my life away with my partner in crime my BEST FRIEND! Let's call her Pitta for the sake of this post; so Pitta and I were so close that everyone at one point thought we were a thing. She and I were so close we would tell each other everything, hangout every day, and…"

"So, it's my birthday, July 5, and it's about 1 am in the morning. I lie here wondering why I feel so emotional and why I feel like something is missing. This isn't something that I think about daily, but I have to be honest with myself when trying to figure out why I feel so sad. I met my boyfriend about two years ago. He's AMAZING! He's 26, a college graduate with no kids. Truly a sweetheart,…"

"On June 28, 2016, I had an abortion. I found out I was pregnant and was so scared, wondering what I would do. A choice like this really stays with you forever. I'm 17-years-old, turning 18. I work a minimum-wage job, my car just broke down, and I'm struggling financially. I have been with my boyfriend, the father of my baby, for seven months. He's the love of my life. Everything about him makes…"

"I was only 17 and slept with a guy who promised me lies. I got pregnant. I wanted to keep the child, but he said it wasn’t his child and my parents a very strict. I thought the only option was abortion. I aborted but what hurts is that I can't forget that I killed my own child. I realised that I loved that baby, but it was too late."

"It's kind of long story. It all started when I got raped last year by a person whom I knew very well. I decided not to tell my family because I felt that their asking questions and taking legal action was going to prolong the situation mentally while I just needed to forget everything. Luckily I was still HIV negative and not pregnant. Then in late April of this year, while still 18-years-old,…"

"I don't even know where to start. Two weeks before my birthday I woke up and suddenly I just knew I was pregnant. I had a pregnancy test in a cabinet and that morning I took the test. The two lines showed up, and I was in complete disbelief. When the dad of my baby came back from his trip I told him, but he didn't take to it. He just closed his eyes and made this expression like “Oh sh*t,…"

"I had been going out with my boyfriend for over a year when I found out I was pregnant. I did the test and it came back positive. Straight away I got so excited! My boyfriend was out working late, and I asked him to come home. I ended up telling him over the phone and straight away he told me to make an appointment at the doctor’s to get rid of the baby. He had a little boy himself from…"

"I had just entered into university, but I had not yet reached eighteen at the time. I was excited about having entered into the school of my choice. I guess I was so excited to be out of my parents’ hold that I threw caution into the wind. I decided to have a friend with benefits. We got tangled up so deep that at some point, we started having raw sex—when we were high on drugs. And…"

"I did my abortion on 31 May. The doctor inserted three pills into my vagina and I took one under my tongue. I was then sent home. He said I should drink a lot of strong tea when I get home, After four hours, it would be over. I was three months. I waited, drinking tea. Six hours passed. Nothing. I felt cramps. I called the doctor and he told me that I must come back in. After he called, the water…"

"When I was fourteen, my mom sat me down and told me that she had an abortion more than twenty years ago while she was in college. I was devastated. We were a Christian family, and I never saw it coming. My mom couldn't remember much about the details—not even the exact year it happened. That made me so mad. Everything I wanted to know she just couldn't remember. How could anyone forget?…"

"I had my abortion two and a half weeks ago at 18 years old. The father was a guy I spent some time with after my break up with the love of my life, who I was with for four years. I had just gotten back together with him when I found out I was pregnant. The father said he wanted to be there, but did nothing to help me. He was too jealous that I was back with my ex and lost sight of what was important.…"

"I remember the exact time that I got pregnant, partially because I use a period tracker and keep track of when I’m sexually active. I really remember the day, because we were having unprotected sex, and gambling with our freedom as adults, but didn't plan on being so caught up in the moment. I went on over the next few weeks, pushing that night to the back of mind, and just praying my period…"

"It has been eight weeks since my abortion. I fell pregnant at the age of 16. When my pregnancy test came up positive, I did not really know what to think. I knew my family was not going to take it well, but at the same time, I knew that I wanted to keep my baby. At the time I found out, my mum and dad were away on a holiday so I kept it to myself. The day after I found out I was pregnant, I phoned…"

"I had an abortion when I was about 25. I remember when I found out I was pregnant; it was a world of mixed emotions. I wasn't sure what to do since the guy that I had been dating was abusive. He actually tried to kill me by choking me. I had thought about keeping the baby and going through with the pregnancy, but after thinking more and more into this, I called and made the appointment to have…"

"I was 17 at the time, going through a big rough patch with my boyfriend of three years. Dating in high school is toxic, so much jealousy and fighting. I decided to split with him in August 2012; it was more of a break but I was serious about it. Over the next six months we couldn't help but be jealous of each other and our new found lives, even after being completely sure I wasn't IN love with…"
