"I was 19 and planning a wedding to the man I'd been with since age 16 when I learned I was pregnant. We were elated and continued our plan and got married. As I ascended the steps to the church, I tripped and fell. I thought nothing of it, but one week after the wedding, at 16 weeks, I had a miscarriage. We were sad but decided to enjoy being a young married couple and decided to wait a bit.…"

"It's only been 11 hours since I had a surgical abortion, and I am a complete mess. This was such a fast and unthoughtful decision on my end. I just wish I could take it back. I found out I was pregnant six days ago, on June 28th, by my long-term boyfriend. We only spent two days going back and forth on what we should do. Before we found out I was pregnant we were getting ready to start our futures…"

"I was 19 when I got pregnant with the love of my life's baby. I had changed my pill, but we didn't wait the recommended 7 days. I anticipated my pregnancy a month before I took the test as I was told to wait until I missed a period. My boyfriend and I talked about everything—including abortion—and we decided we would keep the baby. There was enough room in his house for us and the baby, and…"

"I was around 22 or 23 years old when I was persuaded by my boyfriend at the time to have an abortion. He came from a wealthy family living in New Canaan, CT. I was naive and believed him when he said my body would change and the it was the best decision. I was scared and uncertain, but eventually caved in and did it. I regret it every day, because the baby would have been financially set with…"

"When I was 20, my period was late—which I put down to stress. Then I had a dream of being in my parents' house holding a small baby with black hair. A pregnancy test showed two red lines. It felt like a punch in the gut. I rushed out to my boyfriend in tears and showed him. Immediately he offered his support and told me that he would always be there to support his child. But I was a mess—a…"

"I was 14—a latchkey kid—in the 80's. I had a boyfriend, and my sister gave me the talk to get on the pill. So I went down to Planned Parenthood and got free birth control pills. I basically lived with my boyfriend. My parents were in the process of divorcing and they were barely home, so they didn't know what I was up to. A year later, I contracted the measles—which is possibly harmful…"

"My parents are deceased now. My mother passed in January 2019, my father in July 2014. They were a professional dance team who met on a blind date in 1949. On that first date they went to a mambo dance competition at a night club in Long Beach, Long Island. With luck and their natural born talent, they won first place and split the $50 prize money. With that, they went on to become fixtures at…"

"I was 21 years old when I first found out that I was pregnant. I was not doing any job, and my boyfriend was still completing his schooling. We were very new in the relationship and didn’t know what to do. The best option that time was abortion. My boyfriend bought abortion pills, and I took them without any medical assistance. The next week was so bad. I regretted taking those pills. I’d…"

"I am 25 years old. I found out I was pregnant on April 29, 2019. At first I was scared but then overwhelmed with joy. I’ve always wanted to be a mother. Unfortunately, I was unemployed at the time, and my boyfriend was working almost 80 hours a week and still not making ends meet. Paying all our or bills was hard on him, so me getting pregnant couldn’t come at a worse time. At first, he told…"

"I had my first abortion at nineteen. No one tells you the aftermath, how you see them in your dreams and wake up in a fetal position crying—and how the crying literally unnerves others. It’s not natural, abortion, and the natural course of your life is forever altered. I could find no peace until I gave it to God and asked His forgiveness. I have peace now. I know my child is with Him, and…"

"On May 1st, 2019, at the age of 19, I found out I was pregnant when both of my pregnancy tests came back positive. I already had a feeling I was pregnant because I had been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend. But now it was confirmed. I couldn’t do anything but cry. I had already told myself if I was pregnant I was going to have an abortion. Looking back, it was very selfish. I didn’t…"

"I was 17 and a virgin when I endured a date rape. The shame and guilt that I felt prevented me from discussing it with anyone. A few weeks later I began to have terrible bouts of nausea and vomiting. I also missed my period, but I couldn’t tell anyone because then I’d have to tell them everything. So I kept it to myself as long as I could. I finally went to see the doctor and after repeated…"

"I was 19 the first time I got pregnant. The child's father was a one-night stand, so I didn't think twice before having an abortion. I mean, I was young. Abortion is not seen as something bad here in Sweden. In fact, most of the girls consider it another contraceptive. I was ignorant of the life-ruining consequences it has on women, so the normal reaction to an unexpected pregnancy in the context…"

"Abortion has been recently legalized in my country—the capitalist and westernized South Korea. This has made me think of the untold effects I suffered and still suffer—the same ones that thousands (if not, millions) of women will suffer too—and the disastrous consequences that the country will have in demographic terms. The birthrate is already very low. I was born in 1963, just a decade…"

"I separated from my husband and started seeing someone else. After a year of dating and being head over heels, my new boyfriend of one year said he wanted to have a baby. I think I felt loved and flattered. Nobody had ever said that to me. I mean isn’t that what people in love do? I said, yes. We weren’t using protection, and a few weeks later I realized that I hadn’t got my period. I walked…"
