"When I was 19 I had an abortion. I felt at the time that is my only option. My boyfriend did not want to be a father, my mother did not want to be a grandmother and in all honesty I did not want to be a mother yet. I chose the abortion and it has haunted me ever since. I thought I was okay with the decision and felt fine about it initially. After some time I'd find myself feeling guilty and having…"

"About a month ago I started getting really bad headaches. My mom decided to take me to a doctor where they did a blood test. The doctor then said that my blood results said I was pregnant. I was completely blindsided and unprepared by the news. I was only dating the guy I got pregnant with for about a month. He was the first guy I ever slept with and I was naïve at the time and trusted him.…"

"I had an abortion because the man I had been dating was and still is a commissioned, active duty officer serving in the United States Air Force... His coercion for not wanting to get in trouble for having caused an enlisted woman to become pregnant is what led me to killing my precious second child. Before and during the abortion procedure, I experienced fear and anxiety. After having a discussion…"

"I've recently learned that 64% of American women who have had abortions felt pressured by others. I am one of those women. When I became pregnant at age 17, I was pressured by my father to get an abortion. Abortion was the only "choice" presented. I was told MY life would be destroyed if I didn't get one. Nobody discussed the destruction of the other life that would be affected. I still weep…"

"When I was 17, I got pregnant. My boyfriend and I were ready to keep the baby, and even broke the news to both families. His family was so excited to be grandparents. My family wasn't so excited. My mom was ready to stand by me in whatever I decided, but was very disappointed that we hadn't been taking the proper precautions. My dad was another story. He was dead set on having an abortion. He…"

"When I was 19, I was pregnant and scared. Each person I went to for advice told me that whatever choice I made they would stand by me. I thought I was too young to have a baby, that I wasn't sure if I was in love, and afraid that I wouldn't be a good mother. Adoption was never even offered as a "choice." It was either keep the baby or abort. I chose abortion, expressing my right to do what I…"

"I was 17 when I got pregnant. My boyfriend and I were ready to keep the baby, and even broke the news to my family. My mother cried everyday. One day she came in my room and convinced me to have an abortion. She told me it was going to ruin my life and my child's life... If I could go back and change things, I would. Not just because I want children now, but because it took me years to realize…"

"I will never be OK. I will never get over this. I will never be truly happy. Because I was scared and had an abortion. My baby was sick. I have a thyroid problem and his brain was not developed properly. I was 21, living with my boyfriend and now husband. I know what you are thinking–you were sick–what do you have to feel guilty about? The thing is I know with all my heart that even…"

"I am now 48 years old. In my early 20's I had 3 abortions. These abortions left me in turmoil. It affected every area of my life... Women please don't believe the lie that abortion is quick and easy and will be over and done. It ends life and will forever change yours in horrible ways you never dreamed of."

"It is all a blur as to how I chose abortion. I thought that this baby that was growing in my stomach was nothing but a sickness. My best friend at the time would keep telling me that it was nothing but a alien that needed to be extracted. I remember everything that happened the day of my abortion appointment. I remember that I wanted to leave, but something inside my head was telling me to continue…"

"I went to my appointment on March 3 and had the abortion. It was the worst experience of my life. So many women there getting abortions..... I can honestly say that I wish I didn't have the choice of abortion. I wish it wasn't even an option!! That would have saved my babies life. I wouldn't be sitting here grieving for the loss of my baby. My first thoughts this morning were... God, how I wish…"

"When I was 25, I found myself in a situation where I began medical school and there was no way that I could have a child that would ruin it for me after I worked so hard to get in. My boyfriend felt that he would never allow anyone who is carrying his child to get an abortion but it is funny how when the situation occurs thoughts change from knowing what is the right thing to do (have the child)…"

"When I was sixteen years old I had my first abortion. I was told that it was tissue and the baby had not yet formed. They sat me down in an office with a counselor and she gave me her word that babies do not form until after the three month trimester, she even showed me brochures to back up her statements. They told me it would be, "quick, over in a minute". I would feel nothing and I would be…"

"Right before I went into the abortion station, while seated in the queue waiting my turn, I heard the woman before me scream. The doctor had told us it didn't hurt so why was she screaming? I was terrified, but I walked in there and though I experienced pain the likes of which I'd never known, I didn't cry, I didn't scream. I was strong. Many women wailed and fought and the walls reverberated…"

"In August of 2003 I had an abortion. I grew up in church and thought I was a Christian. I never believed in abortions and said I would never get one. That all changed the day I found out I was pregnant. I was in college and 21 years old. The first thoughts that went through my head were "how am I going to tell my parents". I'm not sure why I thought that, other than I knew I would be ashamed.…"
