  • Not really sure. Only a person that has done it can truly answer that. I do not agree but apparently they feel like they have a logical answer

  • I am sure there is a different reason for everyone that has felt like that was their only choice. It was their choice and I am sure it was not an easy one.

  • Because they are pregnant, and no longer wish to be.

  • Some women do not want to parent another child, do not want to be a parent at this time, can't afford this child, afraid of someone finding out she is pregnant, rape, in a domestic violence situation, too young to parent....dozens of reasons. And all the right of the woman to decide if this pregnancy should be terminated.

  • they probably dont wanna be tied down to the father and regret having sex with them in the first place. some cant afford kids. some people just cant have kids or really dont want one after having a few already and just dont want to go through another pregnancy and they missed a pill or something.

  • There isn't an across the board answer here. Women have abortions for deeply personal reasons that cover a whole incredible range of situations.

  • All the above.

    Answer by sweetangie79 at 9:34 AM on May. 25, 2011

  • I think it depends on the situation and woman. I had a friend in high school who did it because she felt too young to be a mom and I have and aunt who did it for health reasons.

    Answer by Octobersmom at 9:35 AM on May. 25, 2011

  • I am sure there are many many reasons.
