"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…"

"To My Unborn: I think about you every day. I wonder how you would look, feel, or smell. All I can do is imagine right now. I cry for you. I love you. I wish you were here more than anything. Just you and me against the world. It hurts my heart knowing your father didn't want you, and I allowed that to make my decision. I wish I had the courage to do things my way. I let someone who didn't matter…"

"I had just turned 18 I found out I was pregnant. My boyfriend was only a few years older than me. We had met two years before through mutual friends. He seemed a great guy. He was loving, protective, caring and very funny. How could I not fall in love with this guy? Unfortunately, that did not last long; after the honeymoon period, his behaviour started to change. By the time I realised that…"

"I was 20 when I found out I was pregnant. I cried as soon as I saw the two lines because I was both happy and devastated. I was devastated because I didn't know who the father was. I had cheated on my husband, and I already knew that what I did was horrible. But my husband and I had been having problems, and he told me he wanted a divorce. So I ended up sleeping with another man who was also…"

"To anyone confused about whether or not to have their baby, it is your choice, reflect on your life and who you are. It’s your choice, your baby, but this is my story. I’m sad, but I know I’ll be better. I was 16, a junior year in high school, which was the best year of my life. The would-be father was some guy I always liked. He was beautiful. It was all sex, and I loved that arrangement.…"

"My boyfriend and I had recently spilt up. He was away when I realised I was pregnant so I rang him in a state and told him. I waited until I'd missed my period to take a test, but it was negative. So I went to the doctor to find out why I'd missed a period. They did a test and that was negative as well. The doctor sent me to hospital with a suspected appendicitis. Another test, this time positive.…"

"My journey with abortion began in 1979 when I was 16. My parents were finally separated after a marriage of less than 20 years that was filled with turmoil and alcoholism. My father had moved across the state of Florida to be with his new family and my mother couldn’t cope with her new life situation. I was a rebellious and angry teenager who had lost all respect for her parents. I was careening…"

"I had a surgical abortion at 11 weeks, 5 days ago. The regret and loss I feel is unbearable. I went to the GP who gave me some diazepam, but I'm still tormented and feel suicidal. My mum is worried sick and won't leave me alone. Please, please do not do it. If you are reading stories trying to make your mind up, then type in 'abortion regret stories' and google the suicide rates. I'm telling…"

"I was 20; my boyfriend was 32. I never believed in abortion and a part of me always seemed to think that I could never get pregnant. We had a rough relationship and it was always a mental beatdown with him. We weren't supposed to be together; we could have gotten in trouble because we worked together. We broke up and three weeks later I found out that I was pregnant. He didn't believe me when…"

"August 21, 2016, was the date I found out I was pregnant. The first day of my last period was the 20th of July, and the date of the abortion was the 21st of September. I have been with my boyfriend for a little more than two years now. I found out I was pregnant because I dreamed about a positive pregnancy test. I had not missed my period yet, but I was a bit scared. I bought the tests later…"

"I am in the military and was stationed in Italy when I found out I was pregnant back in May. I was with this guy on and off. It wasn't a serious relationship. We had talked about being together in the future, but when I told him I was pregnant it was a complete shock to him—as if we ever used protection. At first, I told him I was going to keep it. Then I did not hear from him in two weeks.…"
