“I found out I was pregnant at 26 years old, having been with my boyfriend for 3 years. We were happy but had been through a lot during our relationship, such as the death of his father. It just wasn’t the right time for a baby - I was in the middle...

“I chose to have an abortion because I’m simply not ready for another child. I have a 4-year-old whom I had at a young age. I’m slowly getting our lives in order now. I was in a relationship with someone for a year, I discovered he was cheating and s...

“Where do I even start...I’m not going to make this detail-to-detail because it’s a lot and I’m still very emotional about it but talking about it really helps. I found out I was pregnant on January 1st, 2019 (New Year’s Day to be exact.) I knew I wa...

“I am 20 years old and had just moved to a completely different state. I moved to take a year off from school and figure out what I wanted to do as a career. About three months after moving, I noticed that my period was late and that my breasts were...
