"I stopped my birth control in July of 2014. To my disbelief, I was pregnant in September. My husband and I had talked about having another child, so I was excited and also nervous. I told my husband, and he was angry. I couldn't understand. I thought that we had talked about this, and we wanted another baby. He said that he was never really on board with having another baby and that the timing…"

"I've been in an abusive relationship for about two years now. I have a daughter who I love so much and cry to every night. Her dad has abused me physically, mentally, and verbally. I'm tired of this situation. I told him I was having an abortion because I can't see another child go through the fear he has put in myself and my baby. I'm going through very bad depression at the moment and I want…"

"This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do—being brutally honest and speaking about my journey with abortion is something I never thought I could do. I don't think any woman in this world is as disgusting and vile as I am because you see I didn't have one abortion, I had THREE! I was 16 years old. I had always been slow when it came to boys. All my friends had been on dates, kissed boys,…"

"I grew up learning that life was a gift from God, that it was never something to take for granted. I grew up learning that life was precious; it's an invaluable thing that was granted to each and everyone of us. I grew up learning that taking a way a life was one of the worst sin, something so despicable that even God couldn't forgive me for taking away one of his creations. So, why did I go…"

"It was 1974, I was 16, and he was my first love. We’d been together for two years when I found out I was pregnant. It was summertime, and I got sick. I thought it was a summertime flu because that's what it felt like. I couldn't get my fever down—it was like 104—so my mom took me to the emergency room. The doctor there was concerned because my red cell counts were very, very low, so they…"

"I was 16 and totally convinced I wasn't pregnant—just greedy and overeating. I thought that was why I had put on weight. But my boyfriend was scared, so we took a test. I wanted him to come in and take it with me, but I didn't want to ask him so I did it alone. Two minutes felt like two lifetimes and then, bang, I'm pregnant. I panicked and then for some reason almost smiled. I don't understand…"

"I was 15 when I got pregnant. I never thought it would happen to me. I understood the consequences of sex, but just thought it wouldn't happen. At the end of August I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant. Everything changed. A couple months prior, I had just quit injecting meth and broken up with the baby's father—who was abusive and did terrible things to me. I quit everything once I found out.…"

"I found out I was pregnant on the 26th of November, 2016. The father of my baby was the love of my life. He always treated me like a queen. I had an abortion two days ago and I regret it with everything I have. The father started treating me like I was NOTHING. I was sick all The time and spent most of my pregnancy in the hospital. I was unable to do anything. He told me that he wasn't ready…"

"I had just turned 20 and was going through a hard time. I was troubled with anxiety disorder and depression as a result of it. My grandpa was also very sick, dying in fact, and I was struggling to find a way to deal with it. I was feeling alone and upset when a boy I used to know texted me asking to hang out. By “hang out” he meant have sex, which I would normally say “no” to as he isn't…"

"It was the summer before my sophomore year of college. I had known the guy for two years, and I finally decided to give hims some sort of a chance, but I didn't want a relationship. I kept telling him that, and he understood. One night we were hanging out and we had intercourse. Back track to May of before this summer, I broke up with my boyfriend of over a year, and I felt a little lonely. This…"

"I thought I was doing the right thing. For my future and my boyfriend's. I was terrified and didn't want to fall behind in college. The idea of being pregnant repulsed me. I didn't want to give up my lifestyle and everything I had. I just turned 21 and had barely gotten to go to the bars and have fun. I've always been against abortion, but when you're the one pregnant it's much different. I thought…"

"I was 23, with a 3-year-old little girl, living with my boyfriend, and we were not on good terms. I was going to school to get my high school diploma. We were not planning on having a baby. But I ended up pregnant; we were not being as careful as I thought we were. After I found out I was pregnant, I told my boyfriend. He was not really happy. His only response was, “I told you I didn’t want…"

"I suffer from a very extreme type of morning sickness known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum—a serious and potentially deadly illness that usually lasts up until 20 weeks into pregnancy. Sometimes it lasts the whole way through. There is no cure; it is the most horrible experience. I have suffered from this condition through every pregnancy and it is the most unmanageable sickness to control; there…"

"My shameful story of abortion is preceded by a shameful story of an almost-3-year affair with a married man. I've always told myself that he was my soulmate, the only person who was truly there for me. I've been through a lifetime of tragedies and my self esteem is almost non existent. He made me feel good about myself. We always talked and fantasized about him getting out of his own marriage—about…"

"Son, I did it so your daddy wouldn't leave. Your daddy left anyway. Son, I am so sorry I wasn't strong enough to carry you and believe in myself. I prayed to God for you and when given you, my miracle, I was terrified. Your daddy was mean. I should have been your protector, I thought I was. We could have made it, we should have. You should have. I pray one day I will be forgiven and your father…"
