Wednesday’s Words from Women
August 15, 2012
I lost my job and haven’t been able to find another one since. My boyfriend only works part-time and isn’t helping me anymore. I already have three children and I can barely take care of them. It would be wrong for me to bring another life into this world. Thank you for your help and allowing me to care for the children I already have.

I am a 26 -year-old married woman. However, my husband left me alone to raise four children. He knew I was pregnant and left me without warning. I have had very bad kidney problems during this pregnancy. I have no one to take care of my four children if I were to pass during childbirth. This abortion is a blessing for my health and the well-being of my children.

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. If you would like to share your story with us or have it published on our blog, go to http://www.prochoice.org/pregnant/hotline/share.html.
