I have used birth control throughout most of my 37 child-bearing years (I'm now 49 and still able to get pregnant); however, two times that I didn't, I ended up getting pregnant.


When my son was 18 months old, we decided to try for a sibling. My first pregnancy ended in an early miscarriage. I quickly became pregnant again, and once we passed through the first trimester, I breathed a sigh of relief.


Siempre he estado a favor del derecho a decidir, pero nunca me imaginé que me iba a enfrentar a la elección que tuve que tomar. El embarazo que di por finalizado fue muy querido y planificado.


I was 20 years old, and my boyfriend and I were living in his parents' house - both of us working low-paying restaurant jobs. When I learned that I was pregnant, I knew the timing wasn't good, but was still ecstatic at the thought of the life growing inside me.


I started seeing a therapist again after my abortion. She tells me it’s OK to talk about this, but I know I’m not supposed to.
