"Abortion became partially legalized in my country last October. I wouldn't have thought I would have an abortion and get away with the crime, not in a country where it was completely illegal. I used to have a "pro-choice" view on this topic, until I had mine—three months ago. I had an abortion at a local hospital, alleging that I was raped. That is one of the few circumstances in Chile which…"

"I really regret my abortion. I think it was a selfish thing to do, but given my circumstances, I thought I didn't have a better option back then. I don't know how much more I'll be able to stand such a burden. I had an abortion 12 years ago; I was 20 years old. I got pregnant from a guy that loved me so much. I still cry when I remember, but he died in a car accident when the baby was 6 weeks…"

"Before I get started, I feel glad about finding this web site and having the chance to open up. I realize now that I am not the only woman feeling hurt and fooled. Don't get me wrong, seeing other women suffering doesn't make me feel good. I just needed some moral support, which I found in their stories. It's been hard for me to even say anything about it, as I live in a society where abortion…"

"Last Friday, May 25th, 2018, most of my people voted to repeal the 8th amendment from our Constitution, and although I did expect that result, I'm still disappointed because they don't know the nefarious consequences it will bring. In the spring of 2013, when I was 19, I got pregnant by my then-boyfriend. He didn't want to have kids then, so he pushed me to go to the UK and get an abortion which,…"

"I was recently discharged from a mental hospital. September 2018 will mark two years since the abortion. My panic attacks, my depression, and my anxiety, all stem from this abortion. I tried to kill myself; I gave up. Abortion triggered mania spells that were self harming. I did a lot of stupid stuff—alcohol abuse, drugs, infidelity—all to escape the pain from my abortion. They diagnosed…"

"My boyfriend and I were in third year on campus, and I had just lost my virginity with him. I was naive and not really enlightened on the use of contraceptives. It was on my birthday that I had unprotected sex with him. Little did I know I would become pregnant on that same day. A month later, I would be holding a positive pregnancy test. I was in great shock; in fact I was trembling. I didn't…"

"Abortion was legalized in my country in 1985. At that time, I wouldn't have thought that some three years later, in 1988, I would have an abortion myself at 17. I really wanted to have that child, but I was a problematic girl and I didn't want my parents to know I was pregnant. But now that I've grown up, I know it was very stupid and irresponsible to do things that way. But I had no support…"

"I was 20-years-old when I had an abortion back in early 2012. I never thought it would be so bad, or that I would lose most of my friends because of it. At first, I had thought I had done the right thing, and everyone had told me so, but after a while, all of a sudden, I started feeling guilty. That's the moment I realized I had killed my child. I had made that decision out of fear of having…"

"This is the first time I’ve opened up about my feelings after having an abortion, and I feel it's time to do so, since in my country the legalization of abortion is being debated and is likely to get legalized, due to the pressure of feminist groups, and because I don't want other girls/women to go through all the pain and sorrow I've been through. For most of my life, I lived in Miami because…"

"July 6th, 1991, is the day that changed my whole life. I still can't believe he convinced me to go through it. I can't believe I was so stupid to stay with him afterwards, and even get married. Not a day has passed me by without thinking about what would've happened if I didn't have the abortion—if I’d saved my child and left my boyfriend. But I was so naïve and loved him so much that I…"

"It was 1975, two years after our US Supreme Court unleashed the most unrestrained abortion law in the world—legalizing abortion up to the moment of birth. I was in high school; my girlfriend was pregnant and wanted the abortion. I was confused and lacked wisdom. Neither of us imagined what the real life consequences would be, in part because we were scared. It was also because the media and…"

"Thirteen years ago my ex-girlfriend got an abortion when we were in college, and my participation and complicity still haunt me to this day. I thought time would heal the would, but I think in reality the guilt within me only got worse over time. At the time, I thought I was encouraging her to do the right thing for her and for me, so we could both finish college and move on—but I was terribly…"

"I found out I was pregnant in December of 2017. I was so happy. Finally. Three years and we got a baby. He was upset. Abortion. I went to the clinic twice. Couldn’t do it. I went on March 1st, 2018. I’ve cried every day since then. My baby girl. I wanted you so bad. I prayed for you. I’m so sorry I didn’t keep you. I should’ve. I feel so empty and alone now. Your dad. He’s happy.…"

"Four years ago my fiancé and I decided to throw away our pills and go forward with having a baby of our own. It wasn't very long until until we got what we wanted. Both of us were so excited and so happy. My fiancé nicknamed the baby “bean.” We had a very positive happy relationship. Sadly, it wasn't long until family drama and mishaps with friends tore us down. In a fight and temporary…"

"When I was 17 I had an abortion—NOT by choice—but out of fear of having to raise it alone and pressure from the father. No family would support me as they did not approve of my relationship with the father to start with. It was the absolute worst experience I have ever had. My boyfriend dropped me off and left. He didn't even stay. They took me in the room, after I got the gown on, and did…"
