Many Voices - Many Choices

Feminism begins with women sharing their experiences.

Nina Every situation is different. In my case, I did what I had to do.  This was the best for the 3 of us. Julia I was in college and found myself pregnant after a sexual assault.
Leela I had no clue that I was pregnant.  I was actually losing weight.  I was beyond shocked! Roxanne My mother, who was choosing not to house me at that time, was my legal guardian and was a staunch pro-lifer...
Annabelle I'm not pretending that I don't wonder what my child might have been like, but I am happy with my decision.  Liana I feel that a woman should know that an abortion is not the end. It is just the beginning.
Hilary It was the best and worst thing that could have happened to me. Gabriela Hugs for all women who went through ... doesn't matter how.
Lana I should have been more cautious. But it is too late for that now. Bella I don't know any women who have felt this way after an abortion. 
Caitlin I really didn't have to think it through very long due to demands on my career. Sheryl I was married for 14 years and have 2 wonderful children.
Patricia I could not talk to anyone with out bursting into tears. Ilsa I had an abortion 30 years ago - and I never regretted it.
Megan And my worst fear was true, I was pregnant, and not by my husband. Anya Now after I had time to come down I feel that I did the right thing and I am a better mother to my children.
Krista Counting my losses I decided to travel to a bigger city and pay 500 through a clinic.  Joanna I don't want
to give up our baby but  I am so glad the law makes it my choice.
Daniella I’m six credits away from receiving the Associates degree that I’ve been working on for four years, and if I take any more time off I’ll probably never go back. Mirah I went through the abortion alone but still survived.

I still do not regret the decision I made. I know in my heart it was the right one.

Danelle I know it's going to take a long time to heal and I fear that so much.
Sonia My abortion took place in South Korea. Ginny Psychologically it's hard, but I have no regrets.
