"I had an abortion 34 years ago. I did struggle with it from time to time, but it seemed after the years had passed that it didn’t really bother me anymore. What the mind forgets, the heart holds onto. Little did I know there would come a time when it would hit me like a ton of bricks. I was 18 at the time I had the abortion. Dumped by my abusive boyfriend, I moved out of my hometown to another…"

"I was a 40 year old breast cancer survivor. Not far enough out from treatment to "recommend" a pregnancy. We were told to be careful, so my husband had a vasectomy—but it didn't work fast enough. My husband, mother, father and sister all went ballistic. I had my abortion within a week of finding out I was pregnant, at 10 weeks gestation. The Devil whispered in every ear around me, even mine.…"

"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…"

"I've been a Christian most of my life, and still had two abortions. The first was after I marched in front of the White House against abortion with my dad when I was 15. When I got pregnant at 18, my boyfriend wanted no part of a child—and I was deathly sick from the pregnancy, vomiting 24/7 for days resulting in several trips to the hospital. As I drove around at night, down the dark, winding,…"
"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…"

"I had an abortion when I was about 25. I remember when I found out I was pregnant; it was a world of mixed emotions. I wasn't sure what to do since the guy that I had been dating was abusive. He actually tried to kill me by choking me. I had thought about keeping the baby and going through with the pregnancy, but after thinking more and more into this, I called and made the appointment to have…"

"About a year ago this month, I found out I was pregnant by a guy who I barely knew and who already had a girlfriend. Me, pregnant?! You don't ever think it can happen to you until it does. My dad was a preacher and this guy had a girlfriend, so what was I going to do? The day I told him I just sent him a picture of the test, and he called me. I was crying hysterically and so scared. The first…"

"At age 16, I was married. A few years later I became involved with a married man. We had an affair that produced a daughter, which I passed off as my husband’s child. Our affair lasted 10 years, before my first marriage dissolved and I married this man. During those 10 years I had become pregnant four other times and all four times I aborted them. It wasn’t long after we married that…"

"I was 18 years old, when my high school sweetheart told me that she was pregnant. Her mother was furious, even though she did not know her daughter was pregnant. She just thought the daughter had a pregnancy test. The mother said, "If she is pregnant, she is going to have an abortion." However, my girlfriend never told her mother she was pregnant - at least that I know of. I passed the decision…"

"I have NEVER shared my story with anyone! But if this helps one woman out there then my shame will be worth it! Before even going into details, I read a few of these stories and I feel worse!... After my divorce, I turned 21! Hurt, angry and alone (so I thought) I turned to the party scene! Mainly to feel numb! I didn't respect myself or anyone at this very low point in my life! I became pregnant…"
