I've Had Multiple Abortions

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
That's my confession.

I had them at ages 17, 20, 25, and 30.

They were all done before 6 weeks gestation. Three of the four times I was on BC (Nuva ring once and IUD the other two) and I've been with only one man for the last 10 years, so I'm not a "slut."

The first pregnancy was the result of date rape. I had taken Plan B, but it did not work. The second was a BC failure (Nuva Ring) and I was in a horrible situation and would never bring a child into it. The third and forth terminations were for health reasons (related to a health condition of my own.)

It was a difficult decision each time, but it was the best choice each time and I have no regrets. I believe that sometimes, the option to not continue a pregnancy is the most appropriate and responsible decision.

The health and well-being of myself and my children will always come before the life of an embryo. I wish that pro-life women would realize that no one wants to have an abortion. It's not fun and it's not a decision made lightly. But it is a valid pregnancy decision and should remain a safe option for those who need or want it.

No it's not, but it's a backup option. My IUD was supposed to be my BC. Too bad it failed.

Abortion is not birth control honey.

Or perhaps more women and men could take more precautions while having sex. (Not speaking about the original poster here)

Obviously not ALL abortions are a result of unprotected consentual sex, as you can see in the OP, but plenty are. And to suggest more women get them regulary and often (even if you are just stirring the pot for drama) is beyond sick.

Thank goodness women have that choice. I am always on the woman's side when it comes to her body. Always.

 I never knew a pregnancy with an IUD would be viable?
