    I may have not been "ready" to be a Mother, let alone do it alone.

    The doctors where kind and understanding, it was with their advice that we decided to abort. It was to much of a risk in my medical condition.

    It's the unnecessary and inaccurate shame many women feel afterwards that motivates me to want to tell my story.

    There I was in a "third world country" and I received a safe abortion.

    If abortion had not been an option for us, I wouldn't be in school now.

    Almost daily I think about how my life should be different.

    I am confident that my decision saved our relationship and our futures.

    I wasn't ready for that responsibility, I was still a child myself and I still am now.

    If I did not have the strong support structure that I have with my family, I would have had an abortion.

    How can I regret something that has allowed me to have all that I am blessed with today?

    For better or worse my abortions changed my life.

    I have always wanted a family, but I knew my partner wasn’t ready and I didn’t know if he was the guy to have a child with.

    I have no doubt I made the right decision for my family and the children I already had.

    After all the pain from the pills have passed, nothing hurts more then when I think again of the what ifs.

    I regret putting myself and my baby in this situation.

    Submitted by EG

    My abortion was not a big deal except that it contributed to my ability to continue to have the life I always dreamed of.

    Submitted by Anonymous

    Yes I did what was best in the situation but I never wanted to make that decision. I don't know of anyone who ever has.

    So grateful to have access and options and to know that starting a family is something I get to do on my terms.

    Submitted by Kayla Lee Ann

    I felt guilty about aborting my baby.

    Submitted by Anonymous

    I am ashamed to say that I was in such shock that I numbly allowed my doctors and husband to make my decision for me to end the pregnancy.

    Submitted by Barbara

    I was treated with respect and compassion and have not experienced one moment of regret.

    Submitted by Margaret

    People tell me those who have abortions have emotional, guilty issues... but for me I have emotional, guilty issues of my own.

    Submitted by Wendy

    I have never had any regrets or and went on to have a normal pregnancy some years later. I am very thankful for my abortion, I believe my life would have been radically different – and worse – without it.

    Submitted by Rachel

    There was no question in my mind that having a baby would have been an incredibly selfish thing to do.

    Submitted by Linda Marie

    My only regret is that it was illegal at the time.

    Submitted by Small Town Girl

    No regrets--I felt mature and responsible. I had no illusions about what it would be like to have a baby at 17.

    I hate the idea of abortion, but I hate the idea that women could be forced to have babies against their will so much more.

    I did not want to start graduate school pregnant. It would have been too stressful for me and my child.

    I think of my daughter and what would have happened if our lives had been connected to this monster, through a child, for life.

    I asked my 3 weeks old baby for forgiveness, but I didn´t wanted to submit her/him to a life of abuse from my parents or a life in the streets.

    I felt a deep bond with my child, and I didn't think I had the right to take someone else's life.

    Submitted by Anonymous

    Now I'm 51, never had a child, but I have no regrets on what I did.

    Submitted by Jennifer

    If life is precious then that should mean the life you can give that child should be taken into consideration.

    I cried every day... Completely scared, feeling alone, depressed and anxious the appointment arrived.

    Submitted by Julie

    I am sad that women still have to jump through so many hoops. It feels as if it is even more difficult now.
