I didn’t expect my 1st pregnancy would happen this way, and have to end in a horrible out come.What were we to do… we are young and I’m just a young one my self.

It happened and i regret everyday of it. I’m not the same girl i used to be, I’m a killer, and my world is turned around forever. The feelings that i

I was 17. A junior in high school. I was just living life. Normal family, house, friends… I even had a job! I remember it was a Sunday (2013) I was at work with my co worker, which I was close with. We began talking and I told her how I was late with my period.. She bought me a pregnancy test on her break. The cheapest test available i promise. It was 2$ at a local corner store???? any way, I went to the bathroom at work with all the doubt in my mind that I wasn’t actually pregnant.

I am 32-years-old. Almost six (6) years ago, at the age of 26, I aborted my baby. I found out that I was pregnant just days before Christmas. I took three (3) pregnancy tests before I would believe it. I cried and cried and cried. My life was a mess at the time. The guy I was living with did not love me. He was with me because I basically paid all the bills. I even took the bus to work so he galavant around town in my car while I was at work – seeing other girls, chatting online,

I not only lost my baby, but lost a part of myself on February 22, 2014. I am currently 17 and each day moving forward has been a struggle. Not only is my stomach empty and lifeless but my child is gone, given up to abortion. I found out I was pregnant about a week before I went through with the abortion. It was not only shocking and heartbreaking to find out, but the worst feeling was knowing that I would have to tell someone. Not only was it difficult to share this with my boyfriend of a year and

When I found out that I was pregnant I had my mind made up, and having an abortion was not even in my vocabulary. I’m 110% against killing a child. Its now October 7th, and I had my abortion on the 3rd of October. I haven’t slept in days – all I do is cry, and cry aloud to the Lord to forgive me for I have sinned. My mother planned on getting an abortion with me but found out that if she did that she would be risking her own life.
I never imagined taking another life away from

I was extrememly excited, but my world was turned upside down when I got a shocking call 2 days later. It was his wife! He had told me he was divorced 2 years ago. I had an extremely stressful pregnancy, but I managed to stay upbeat through everything. Tazaia was born a month early on August 17. I had my own apartment when she was born, but have since moved back in with my parents.

In December of last year, I had an abortion. I was 17 when I found out that I was 3 weeks pregnant. At first I really wanted to keep it and me and my boyfriend started picking out names and everything. But when I finally decided to tell my mom she freaked out, she acted like it was my decision, but in the end pretty much told me that if I had the baby, she would disown me. Neither me or my boyfriend had jobs or health insurance, so i told myself that it would be the best decision for

I’m Christian and unfortunately had a abortion not because I wanted to but because I was scared and the father(who I wasnt dating) told me I had no choice and he wasn’t going to have anything to do with it or help me in anyway which having morning sickness, being scared, hormones just all over the place and unable to sleep, eat or drink cause I threw up all the food and drink so I was not in a good state to say no or even think clearly and now I hate myself for being a idiot and taking away

I was 15 wen I first had sex.. like most people I never thought that I would get pregnant.. I didn’t know that I was pregnant until I was a little over 2 and a half months.. when I found out it was as if the whole world stood still… like I was dreaming and just waiting for someone to wake me up…I told my mom over the phone.. I couldn’t imagine telling her in person… she yelled and I cried… days later my parents told me that they were taking me to get an abortion.. I told them that

The day i found out i was pregnant it turned my world in a complete 180. I For sure knew i was keeping my baby. My parents were pushing me to get the abortion,but i didnt want to. Also my boyfriend (who im still with today) wanted me to get it also. That even made me stronger to say “im keeping it”. I Didnt care what any one said i was keeping it. I fought tooth and nail for about a week,until he said he would leave. So i decided to go through with it. That day was the worst

I was 15 and didn’t know until 2 months later that i got pregnant. I didn’t even notice that i missed my period that month because there was so much going on. Finally my friend took me to get a test and it came up positive. I ended up telling the father but couldn’t bring myself to tell my parents. I was tiny to begin with and hadn’t gained weight yet so i thought i could hide it still. My parents ended up finding the positive test and threatening me. The sad part is that i never really wanted to
