With great certainty, I have made the decision not to have children. When I found out I was pregnant, I was surprised. Yet, I knew immediately that I wanted to have an abortion. I have received such wonderful support from the staff at the clinic and they made my experience comfortable without any judgment. This is what I needed to feel empowered and not feel like a bad person.

I am homeless and I am currently living at a shelter. The man that I was involved with was abusive the day before my appointment so I am very grateful for NAF as well as its member clinic for helping me. I will do all that I can to assist NAF in its continuing efforts to help other women that are in the same situation. Bless you; I am so grateful and I love you all. 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.
