Wednesday’s Words from Women
September 19, 2012
I have a 2 ½ year-old, no permanent home, and no job. I am a student and have no money for extra expenses. I was able to sell some of my personal belongings to get money for my procedure. The man that I was involved with was abusing me. I needed an abortion. Thank you.

I am a 23-year-old single mother of 11-month-old twin boys. I am on birth control and I haven’t missed a period. I had no idea I was pregnant. I have just started my career and am building a life for me and my boys.

Over one-third of women of reproductive age have an abortion by the age of 45. However, women who have chosen abortion are often absent from the public debate. In order to break the silence surrounding abortion, we feature real stories from real women each Wednesday on our blog.
