For those of you that have had an abortion, if it hadn't been legal, what would you have done?

Tried to do it at home and if that wouldn't have worked, I would have taken my own life. Under no circumstances would I have given birth at that time. I would have killed myself rather than be forced to have a child from that situation, at that time.

I would have tried to end it either way. Which method? I don't know, but I'd still try.

Abortion has always been around and many methods have been used. It was illegal before and guess what, it didn't stop abortion. Having it legal keeps women safer!

Most would still have found a way, I know I would've.

I have access to abortifacients, so in my case it would be fairly simple.

I guess I would've had one illegally.

My mom aunt had one before it was legal. She used a broom stick.

I would have had a child I couldn't afford and probably would have been on welfare for some time.

I also probably wouldn't have had my now two and three year old.
