Many Voices - Many Choices

Feminism begins with women sharing their experiences.

Maritess They brought me nothing more than relief. Sara I was pregnant when I was 20 years old.
Claudia I know I made the right decision for where I am in my life. Laura I didn't have to give them a reason for my being there, they just accepted it as my right...
Alycia Step by step from walking in the clinic door to walking out of the discharge room. Missy I was never treated like just another number.
Anita I have had four abortions. Sarah While it is certainly possible I am not pregnant, it seems likely I am.
Elizabeth I had thought my feelings were perfectly resolved on this matter until two days ago. Kylee I am a 15 yr old girl, who has just found out that I am pregnant.
Korlina I was almost 12 weeks by the time I actually went.  I had to go 2 days in a row, Nicky The decision made me sad but never once have I regretted it.
Kandice My life has been so much better... Lorena I chose to have a non-surgical abortion.
Renae Sometimes, it's about children that are already here. Emily I loved her enough to send her to back to God.
Lindsey I never knew I would have to walk that road alone. Sarah Everything is back to normal, and I can live my life regularly.
Chris This was two weeks ago and I still feel the pain Jessica He didn't want to help me 4 nothing.
Diamond We couldn't afford to have this baby. Kate If I knew... he would have so many problems, I would have terminated so he wouldn't have had to have suffered at all.
Kelley I decided to do the abortion despite my reservations about its morality. Jaye I am facing my own worst fear
Riye Due to an abusive relationship, I felt like I had no choice but to go ahead. Nadine It's been a week now, and I have improved a ton.
Natalie It was the first time we had sex. Katie Now it's me looking at myself and already regretting getting pregnant.
Sonya I don't know if I've made the right decision. Amanda We have an appointment set up for tomorrow morning to talk about the abortion.
Fi I'm surprised by how hard it's been dealing with it. Missy ...the timing wasn't right.

I have never for one moment regretted it.

Lane I could not bring a child into this world without a husband.
