"I am a 26-year-old student who was not ready to be a mother. Last week on June 21st I found out I was pregnant. I didn’t really have any symptoms besides missing my period and my breasts were a little sore. I took an at home pregnancy test and was completely in shock. I immediately called my boyfriend to tell him. He came home and we talked about all our options. We came to the decision to have an abortion. We knew it was the absolute best decision at that time! The next day
"I had my abortion a week and a half ago. And it wasn't the terrible horror story people tell you. I'm only 21. I just got promoted to assistant manager at my work. I just now am able to pay for myself. Not anything else. The father was an ex of mine but we're still really good friends and do it from time to time. And I got pregnant. I've always been pro choice. But I never knew how to go about it. I went to a clinic that was a crisis pregnancy center and I didn't even know i
"I want to share my abortion story because I want to give comfort and peace of mind to those out there who are scared about abortion with no one to talk about it. I feel the need to tell my story for those who are searching for answers, options, and have an idea of what to expect. I will start by saying I do not regret my abortion.

"Hey I'm 18, about to be 19 soon. I found out I was pregnant after I came back from a vacation in Miami over winter break. During my vacation I had terrible cramps but no blood, I even asked my friend to buy me some tampons just in case and it never came. I was so confused but tried to think it was everything but a pregnancy. I had my mother go to the store to go buy me a test and of course it came back positive. I was so hurt and mad at myself. I cried for literally hours on
"I was barely 19 when I got pregnant. It was Halloween night. About halfway through November I just had a feeling, so I took a test. The double lines showed up instantly. I planned to tell the father the next day, knowing full well that an abortion was the only option he would see. From there I just went through the motions. I didn't particularly like it, but I knew it was the best option for all of our lives. I loved being pregnant, and I loved my child, but I loved him enou
"I was 18 years old. It was the summer before my senior year of high school. I had went to Memphis, Tennessee with some family and came back and found out my life had changed. It was the end of June and my period still had not came yet. Something told me that I was pregnant. I took three home tests, went to a local clinic, went to Birth Right they all told me that I was 6 weeks pregnant. I already knew I was pregnant. I just needed confirmation. Afterwards I started to panic.
"I was 24, had just graduated from college and moved to a new town with my boyfriend. I had never been on birth control and "assumed" I would never get pregnant. I was enrolled in a pre-nursing program and going to school full time. Needless to say, we were broke...I thought pregnancy tests were expensive (I'd never bought one before). We went to a "pregnancy counseling center" for a "free" test. Needless to say, the test was positive. I was given a baby blanket and a pin of
