Abortion Heartache

Two Abortions By 16

"At the age of 15, I was drugged and raped. With no memory of having sex, I could not believe it when I discovered I was pregnant. My parents arranged the abortion and never asked how I got pregnant or what I wanted to do. A year later, I was pregnant again." —Sarah

Independent and Career-Minded

"I finished college and work(ed) my way up the corporate ladder. Then when I was in my late 20's, I met 'the one.' When I told my boyfriend I was pregnant, he said he didn't want to have a baby right now. I told him I would take care of it, and I did." —Mary

Dreaming the Relationship Would Last Forever

"I still dreamed that we'd be happily married at some point in the future anyway, and we'd do it 'right,' so this was okay. We split the bill 50/50 and never talked of it again. What I feared most happened when our relationship ended a few months later." —Emily

A Dysfunctional Family Leads to Destructive Behavior

"Dealing with the pain of my family life seemed unbearable, and no amount of counseling or support in school was changing that, so in my teens, I became entangled in a lifestyle of alcohol abuse and self-destructive behavior that eventually led to becoming pregnant." —Amy
