"I sit here as a new mother still haunted by a decision I made 10 years ago. I don't think about it every day, but today is February 10, 2019, and everyone is talking about the new abortion law that got passed in New York. Again, my secret that I continually try to bury away, is coming around again. Flashback to early this morning, me sobbing on my husband's shoulder while we listen to our pastor…"

"I became pregnant at age 15. My parents and I decided on an abortion. The years that followed were riddled with depression, substance abuse, promiscuity and self-hatred. I went on to have four more abortions. They had a compounding effect that was so detrimental to my mental health. I still struggle to this day. I have been in therapy for a good part of my adult life. I feel certain that my poor…"

"The night I conceived was the last night he spoke to me. I was terrified the day I took the test and saw the positive results. I had no where to turn. I went to a teacher who told me she couldn’t help because it would risk her job. She told me I had to go to my parents, I did and the horrible decision was made. The decision of convenience. The decision to kill my child, my first love. It has…"

"Before my abortion, I never expected to deeply regret something I was so sure about, but I do. And it really hurts to see how ignorant, foolish, and naive I was. I was 23 when I went through an abortion on November 9, 1998. I got pregnant from a man I actually loved. I know now that he loved me then, as he wanted me to keep the baby—not because of him or the baby, but because of me. Though…"

"Even though I'm now against abortion and oppose its intended legalization—because I've experienced firsthand its disastrous consequences—I hadn't always felt this way. I used to be indifferent on the topic until I happened to have one, coerced. Back in 2001, I was 19 and I had recently entered the university. Life was fine for me, until I got pregnant. I'm not meaning maternity is something…"

"I am a man, so obviously I'm not the one that aborted in this story. Abortion in my country has been legal since 23 November 1955, when Estonia was part of the Soviet Union. Legislation over abortion was only fine-tuned after the restoration of independence, back in the early 90's. Knowing this, I feel kind of fortunate that I was able to be born, as four of my seven siblings were not that lucky.…"

"My story began 22 years ago when I was a teenager. The person I was with then was the only person I had ever had sex with. I got pregnant within the first month. He was that "bad boy" type which, for some reason, I liked. My periods were not regular so I thought nothing about skipping one month’s period. When the next month came around, I still hadn’t started my period. My grandmother was…"

"Last year, I got pregnant from someone I loved a lot. And I thought he loved me back, until he pushed me to abort. My baby was 10 weeks and two days old when it died, or better said, I killed it. I thought that heeding my boyfriend would save our relation, but I forgot to consider that he didn't love me as much as I had thought, and dumped me after the abortion. My parents didn't care about me.…"

"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…"
