  • Yes, and I regret it. It's horrifying. That was 22 yrs ago and I have never been able to have children. I miss my baby and am so sorry I did that to him/her. There is a place for women who need help to recover from the trauma. I've looked it up several times but haven't went for the retreat yet. Look up www.rachelsvineyard.org.

  • Yes I had one after my son was about 7 months old. Worst mistake of my life. It was almost a year ago. I am not sure why I did it considering I knew it was going to be a baby! If you are thinking of getting one change your mind! Seriously. I wish I could go back.

  • I had one when I was 16 too! I feel really bad about it, but I wouldn't change it! It was the right thing to do at the time.

  • I had one when I was 20 and then again when I was 22. How stupid was I? Omg, after the first one I swore if I got pregnant again before I was married I would never have an abortion. But I went to Planned Parenthood both times for my pregnancy test and that's the counseling I got. 'Have an abortion if you don't think you want a child.' Great. There's not a day that goes by that I don't regret it. It's a terrible thing to go through emotionally.

    I did happen to get pregnant a year before my dh and I were going to get married and I never even considered going to planned parenthood. I went to Birthright and they gave me a list of doctors that accept patients with no insurance. They gave me info on Medicaid and WIC and all that stuff. I found a great OB who not only delivered that child, but my other 3 as well. My 4 beautiful children will never replace the 2 I aborted, but I appreciate my kids even more because of my experience I think.
