"I haven’t slept without nightmares for 7 years; I am stuck in the moments leading up to and directly following my abortion. My mind wanders, and I comment on things from years ago that don’t apply to what my life has devolved into. I was a manager and saleswoman—dependable. My ex wanted to get married, but I didn’t so when I became pregnant he offered me money to abort our child. He said…"

"What can I say? I not only made the wrong choice once but twice. I am in my early thirties with three kids and don’t have the balls to say it out loud. I kept it a secret. I only told a handful of people. The first time I got pregnant, I’d just turned 17. He was young and athletic, like me, but we only dated to prove we belong together. We should never have dated. I remember being young and…"

"He was a one-night stand; I had no feelings for him. We are young, dumb, and in college. I’ve been on birth control for two years and had an IUD in before that and never had any issues—just living my young and reckless life.

I had bad pregnancies with both of my boys. I had Hyperemesis Gravidarum with both, and pre-eclampsia with the youngest. I initially went into labor at 24 weeks, but I refused to go to the hospital.

"August 21, 2016, was the date I found out I was pregnant. The first day of my last period was the 20th of July, and the date of the abortion was the 21st of September. I have been with my boyfriend for a little more than two years now. I found out I was pregnant because I dreamed about a positive pregnancy test. I had not missed my period yet, but I was a bit scared. I bought the tests later…"

"I am currently a pro-life person—not because of religious views or a clearly-defined sense of right and wrong, but because I have lived with the results of abortion for over thirty years now. There is no greater teacher than living with the results of your own actions. When I was in my twenties, I had three abortions. Yes, three. Why? Because I was selfish, afraid, and I bought into the…"

"The moment I found out I was pregnant, I couldn't think about anything else. I'm 27-years-old and raising a 7-year-old boy pretty much by myself. My now ex-boyfriend didn’t show much support even though we lived together. My initial response was, “I’m not ready for another child at this point in my life.” But if that was the case, what were my options? That was December…"
