When I was 17 years old I got pregnant with my boyfriend. 3 months later I had an abortion. I was basically guilted into the abortion by my boyfriend and his friends. They were saying how we can’t mess up our lives by having a baby, that we were too young. I listened to them even though it’s against my religion to have an abortion. Having the abortion though was the easy part I guess you could say. I tried not to think about it at the time and just went through it, trying to make my boyfriend happy. Well

It was December 28th the day that changed everything. The day I wished that I would’ve said no to a horrible decision that my parents made. I had to make a decision that THEY thought was right. This was not benefitting me at all because I wanted my son. Well thats what me and my baby daddy thought it was, a boy. Although I still have the ultra sound it still brings back memories that hurt me.

Remember that you have the power to say no because you are the one that will have to make the appointment. Not your

I regret having an abortion so bad.

I did it because I had so much going on. Months before that i got kicked out of my house. My boyfriend left me the day after we had sex and told the whole school that i was lying about being pregnant.

I hated him so I thought I didn’t want him to be the father. It still hurts, because now I know that I took somebody’s life away and it feels really bad. That just happened four months ago.(The abortion) 12-09-08 He ruined my baby’s future.

Planned Parenthood. I spent 6 hours there waiting, getting ultrasounds, taking pills, having my blood tested, and watching the other people about to go through the same thing as I was- each one scared and hating themselves for what they were about to do, but feeling trapped. Finally, it was my turn for the procedure. I was 10 weeks pregnant. They shoved a rod of some sort up my vagina… it wasn’t too painful the first time, but as it manually dilated my cervix, I felt it clamp down with increasing pressure to the point where I was crying in

October 29 was the day I found out I was pregnant. My boyfriend and I were hanging out at my house when I told him that I haven’t had my period for awhile, and that I should take a pregnancy test just in case. I would never in a million years think that I would be the girl to get pregnant in high school. When I saw the results of the test, I didn’t believe it. I took 3 tests from 3 different brands with all the same results. I was sixteen at the time and my boyfriend and I

The moment you look down and you see postive signs on the pregnancy test, your heart stops. You’re mind drowns in confusion. What am I gonna do? How am I gonna tell my parents? I’m only 16! I knew my mother was going to force me into an abortion, and I was right. I walked into the clinic and nothing felt right. As I laid down on the table as the nurse told me. The machine started in a different room when I heard this noise from the other room. I could hear this girl screaming “it hurts”, my eyes

I was 18 when I had an abortion. I have just been married for over a month to an amazing guy and then it happened. Both my husband and I are in the military, and just the thought of having a baby in the military was rough. Especially with deployments, after deployments. We both decided that I would get an abortion. He wasn’t there to take me because he had to go home for his father’s suicide. I went by myself and got a sonogram of my 3 1/2 month old baby. I looked at the picture and started crying.

I say I was about 13 or 14 years old when I was supposed to have my baby. But I had to abort my baby because of my mom and her husband. I never had no say so in anything. I really did not want to do it but I was forced. But to this day I still am not over it. But now I am 19 and I have another baby he is 1 years old, I kept my baby and now some of my family is not talking to me because I kept my baby. But I really

I was 14 (that was 2 years ago) when I had my abortion, So young, The father of my child was 20, we didn’t have a relationship at all. Except we’d talked before a few times, but we hooked up one night and a month and a half later I found out I was pregnant. When I told him he was just as shocked as I was, we decided that we were both to young to have a child and he said he had the money for the abortion so I agreed.
It seemed like a simple way to fix

I’m a 20 year old single mother of a 2 1/2 year old little boy. I became pregnant again, and the father of the baby gave me no input on what to do. He has one kid already and just had a baby with one of my friends. He told me he loved me and wanted to be with me. I went away for 2months and came back to find out he got my friend pregnant. I was then 2 months pregnant. He wasn’t helping me make a decision and I was not about to care for another child right

Last month I found out I was pregnant..

My boyfriend said i was crazy to even thinking of keeping my baby.

And my mom said it would ruin my life and that she wouldn’t help me if i kept it.

I was alone, I wanted to keep it for so many reasons.

I think I could have done it and been a great mother.

But I was pressured into getting an abortion.

I regret it so much.

I can’t describe the pain and guilt I feel.

I don’t know what else to say my feelings are too overwhelming.

It was only 2 years ago, he abused me. I found out I was pregnant by accident, my ex and I got into an argument and it led to violence *again. He numerously hit me, dragged me on the road until I was uncountious. I woke up with a medical examiner shining a flash light at my eyes and I totally forgot what happened. The ambulance took me to the ER where they did simple blood test, and there I found out I was 1 1/2 months pregnant. My parents face dropped and it was pure anger. I cried and

I was 16 years old when I got pregnant. The boy that I was pregnant by said it was not his baby, but I know it was his baby because he was the only boy I slept with in five months. I was only two months pregnant, so I was sure it was his baby. My momma kind of started to notice my stomach was getting big and that I was throwing up a lot, and she then told me to get an abortion – no questions asked. It was like what I had to say did not matter because

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.

It was May of 2012 when I discovered I was pregnant. I was with a man that I loved and was so excited to start a family with him. However, no one else shared my excitement. He proceeded to call me a liar, that I was faking the pregnancy to make him stay. He didn’t even believe me until the doctors told him in person and let him listen to the heart beat. By the beginning of June our relationship turned bad and he eventually cheated on me. The heartache of the break up crushed me and sent me into
