How many of you ladies have had an abortion? Statistics show that at least 1 in 10 women will have one in their lifetime. I'd like to see if it is true.


Obviously, feel free to go anon. You may also explain why you got one, if you want to. But to me, it really doesn't matter why you did.


You may also explain if you would get an abortion (if you haven't). What circumstances would push you to get one?


My Answer:


Yes I have had one. I was 15 and had just been raped. The "pro-life" advocate tried to talk me out of it (she did nothing more than make me feel violated all over again). That pushed me into a dangerous depression. 2.5 weeks later my mother took me to another clinic and I went forward with it. I have no regrets.

Motherhood does not define or consume my life but adds to it!

I(personally) don't think I could have an abortion. But I don't have the right to tell other women what to do with their bodies
