I had my first abortion when I was 22 in Berkeley CA in 1973. I was on SSI for depression and my 19 year old boyfriend had already made his other girlfriend pregnant the month before.


I was 21 in early 1988 and recently separated from a mentally-abusive husband, whom I had foolishly married at 18 to get out of my alcoholic and abusive parent's house (frying pan, meet fire).


I was 18 years old. I had just graduated high school. It was my summer vacation before college. I can distinctly remember when I figured out I was pregnant.


I've always been extremely careful since I became sexually active because I don't want to have the difficult decision of havingĀ an abortion.


I was only 19 when I was manipulated into placing my first child for adoption. I faced being homeless or staying with my boyfriend, an older man who regularly beat and raped me.
