I was 20 when I had my abortion. It was a three day surgical abortion. I was 17 weeks and didn't have enough money to pay for it until that happened I honestly thought I was about 10 because my periods have always been a little shotty.


I was a 22 year-old college senior. I had been on the pill since I was 17 and I was pretty used to it. The guy that I was seeing and I broke up in November and in December went home for winter break.


I had just been accepted into a University after a hard year with my father and step mother and moving out suddenly to get away from them. I was 19 years old living with my boyfriend of 2 almost 3 years when I found out that I was pregnant.


I was 29 years old, in an abusive relationship and using drugs to cope, far away from my friends and family and found out I was pregnant in my second trimester.


I was 18 and I had no idea that I was pregnant. I had been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, but for the previous 6 months, our relationship had been rocky.


I was pregnant with my second child and was so happy. In my mind I had no reason to believe there would be any problems, but I got a rude awakening at my 12 week ultrasound.
