Personal testimonies from women (and men) who have gone through an abortion.

"I am 17. One month ago, I had an abortion. My story is not tragic. No one made me get the abortion. It’s only my mother and me in the house. My father has never been in the picture. I broke the news to my mom, and she gave me every option and said whatever I chose, she would support me. I told my best friend—the father of the accidental child we created—and he was supportive…"

"I recently graduated from college... I did it with a one-year-old child... When I found out this time about being pregnant, I was in the ER, and the nurse asked me how far along was. I said, “What are you talking about?!” She said, “…with the pregnancy.” I immediately started crying. All I could think about was already having a child. I still cannot find a good job,…"

"My story is short, but at least I have lived to tell it! I was a young man and was going through a divorce. My wife and I reunited for a visit before the divorce and had sex. This created a child! A child that I would never see. My wife decided to have an abortion without my knowledge, and I didn't even know about it for a couple of years afterwards. Had I known, things might have turned out…"

"I am a typical sixteen year old that has straight A's and a bright future ahead of me. So you would think that I have no reason to be depressed. I have overcome a lot, like being addicted to alcohol and Vicodin. That's all in the past. I got my life together and started going to school again. I found out that I like school and I am good at it, but if anyone asked me to describe myself in one…"

"I was 16 when I had my abortion. That was 13 years ago, and I still struggle with the decision to do it. I had only been dating my boyfriend for 3 months and he and my mom agreed that I should get an abortion. I wanted to have the baby, but my mom said she would kick me out of the house, and with my boyfriend not wanting the baby either, I did it. The moment it happened I regretted it. I struggled…"

"I was 21 when I became pregnant with my first child. My boyfriend, whom I had been in a serious live-in relationship with for some time, was initially happy when I told him. I had every intention of keeping the baby, I quit doing destructive habits, joked about craving pickles. Then I noticed that he was withdrawing from me daily, a little at a time. I began to question my choice-was it wrong?…"

"I had an abortion just 3 days ago, on Wednesday, at 16-weeks. I am 20-years-old and have been with my on-again-off-again boyfriend for a little over 4 years. With that being said, during the month you were conceived, I slept with someone else... As weeks passed by, I tried to weigh out my options with what would happen, depending on who your dad was... Things went from bad to worse, quickly.…"

"I was 29 years old, and had just moved across country for a new job. I was scared, and alone... I had been there about 2 months and had noticed a very nice looking guy next door. We had spoken a couple of times in the parking lot and he seemed nice enough. One night, I decided to take the bold step of introducing myself. Encouraged by the half bottle of wine I had consumed, I grabbed an unopened…"

"I had my abortion not even a week ago. The procedure was last Tuesday. I was always so against abortion. I've been pro-life since I could remember. When I was 16, I got pregnant with my boyfriend that I am still with today and I kept the baby. He's now a healthy little boy! I found out that I was pregnant again right after his first birthday. My boyfriend (his father) automatically said abortion…"

"I thank God for this web site. I wept watching the videos. I never had access to this kind of information back when I had an abortion.. My story is very similar. I am now 50 years-old. I had an abortion performed on me back in 1978, Friday Dec. 1st to be exact. I was 17 years old and found myself pregnant. I was so scared to tell my parents, but I knew I had to. I had previously told the boy…"

"It has taken many years for me to open up about my past abortion. After many years of the Holy Spirit working in me, I am here to stand against abortion. The choice to have an abortion is awful. The thought of the entire process haunts you forever, it never goes away. I know I am forgiven and have accepted that but I still would change history if I could."

"I was 18 years old and a senior in high school when I got pregnant by my boyfriend. My boyfriend didn't want anything to do with having a baby and he said he couldn't live with giving it up for adoption so he talked me into having an abortion. I justified it to myself by telling myself that I had plans to go to college and I didn't want to embarass my parents who were very involved in our church.…"
