"If only I had watched the video before I went through with my abortion, I would never had done it. I was always against abortion but when I found out that I was pregnant, I figured that I had no other choice. The people I spoke to assured me that an abortion was the right decision and I foolishly listened to them. I should have known that the right decision was to keep my baby. It has been almost…"

"I had an abortion five years ago and it was the worst experience I have ever felt. I knew the truth and knew exactly what I was doing. I did it because I was afraid of what everyone would think of me at the time because I was pregnant and not married and the fact I was a Christian. I only used abortion as "a way out." After going through that, I don't understand how woman can have multiple abortions…"

"I am now 36 years young and I had an abortion when I was 19. I highly recommend it to no one!! My life has not been the same every since, to say the least. Nothing about it makes me feel that I made the right choice. My life went to gloom and doom... Today I have asked for Gods' forgiveness but, how long it takes to forgive myself."

"My boyfriend got me pregnant, and I didnt know. He left me. He abused me, we argued all the time. I got knocked out and started to bleed some, the baby was in my tubes any way, and I had to get rid of it. He acts like he's happy and doesn't care. Now that the child is gone, he wont even talk to me b/c he feels that he is off the hook. And I feel so bad I want to die."

"I used to be a "N.O.W." woman. Then I saw what my 4 children looked like in the womb.... before I killed them. My first abortion was when I was barely 16 years old, 1985, seems like so many years ago. I thought I was only 10 weeks pregnant, I went to an abortion clinic (Planned Parenthood) in Ocala, Florida. They told me it was just a "blob"... "hasn't even formed yet", they said. Well, turns…"

"I had an abortion an the age of 14. I thought it was the only way out. It's been five months, now, and I still haven't gotten over the pain it caused me. I still wonder if God has forgiven me for the sin I have done."

"It's been 6 months (since my abortion), and it still hurts me inside and I cry myself to sleep every night. My baby would have been a girl and she would have been born on May 27th, 2007, and her name would have been angelica....but now today it is too late to go back."

"I'm a student in high school. I had an abortion before. Now, I want [abortion] to end because it's really painful. You don't know what you're doing, you just want the pain to go away and you think if you get an abortion no one will know. You are only killing something that's so precious inside of you. You only think to ask god to help relieve the pain and go and cry yourself to sleep."

"I was 15 years old when I became pregnant by a 23 year old man. When I told him I was pregnant, he told me I had to have an abortion. At the time, I felt so alone and helpless that I agreed to the abortion. I think that I was at 22 weeks of gestation at the time of the abortion. After the abortion was performed, I was told there were twins. Since then, I have felt an enormous guilt. I didn't…"

"I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant. I was scared and decided that I could never have this baby. I started thinking about me. What will people think, what will my friends think? All this became a burden. I thought abortion was the only choice. My boyfriend at the time did not agree with my choice but we both were in no position to care for a baby. I went to the clinic and had the procedure.…"

"I had my abortion when I was 18, and my story is the same as alot of women here, except that I didn't see anyone mention "The Silent Scream". It is an ultrasound movie done during the abortion. It also fully explains the abortion process. Had I seen this movie first, I never would have had an abortion, I would have lost my 18…"

"I was someone who fell thru the cracks when I was 20 years old. It has been 15 years since then and I am still trying to heal. I was coerced by family to have an abortion. I was young and had no clue what I really was getting myself into. I just knew I couldn't fight anymore. I tried so hard to keep the baby... but lost. Everywhere I went, everyone kept telling me about abortion and not ONE person…"

I didn't know the…"
