I had to make the choice at 27 weeks to terminate my pregnancy. One of the greatest experiences I encountered was being taken care of by Dr. George Tiller, God rest his soul. We as woman can NEVER give up on keeping abortion legal.

I chose to terminate this pregnancy because I already care for a five year old child. My boyfriend also has two children, one of which has brain cancer. Taking care of a child with an illness that severe is a lot to handle. We only have one income so things are really hard right now. I want to thank NAF and its member clinic for helping us at this time. The clinic is great and the staff was wonderful and very understanding. I don’t want to see my family struggle. I want to be able to take care of them and give them everything they deserve, need and want. Thank you.

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.
