When I was about 14 weeks pregnant, I got scared out of my wits and decided I would abort my child. I had gotten the money together, and I had the appoinment set up and all. Well, that morning when we got ot the building, there were abortion protestors outside with pictures of charred bodies and ripped apart fetuses. All of a sudden, I was like, "wait a minute, how can I do this? What will she look like? How could I influence her life?" So, I was about to get out of the vehicle and suddenly I said, "I can't do this" I was just so scared of the way the fetuses looked and miserable thinking that I may one day wonder how she grew up. (at the time, I just assumed it was a girl). Well, now, my son is 3 months old and is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I'm scared about whether I'll ever have to tell him I almost aborted him and what he'll think of me then. I love him more than anything else in the world, and I 100% regret ever thinking about aborting him.

This site, other sites, and my son (4yrs) have forever changed my view of abortion. I was a swing voter, now, I'm totally against the "practice" Abortion=MURDER

I never really saw how the babies really look after being aborted. Now I know, and I will never do it, ever.

Well, things have been very depressing lately and my mind and body seemed like they were telling me to get an abortion, but after seeing this my heart lead my mind and body in the right direction!!! I AM TWO MONTHS PREGNANT AND I AM KEEPING MY BABY!

At first, I thought [abortion] didn't matter. In some situations I thought it would be ok, like if a 13 year old girl got pregnant and coudn't care for it. Then I saw this, and talked to my friends, and we just thought, "then put it up for adoption!" Thanks for changing my mind, in a good way!

I'm thinking twice about getting an abortion and not listening to my boyfriend, beacause this human being never asked to be conveived but it was and now that it is, it shouldnt be killed just because of its exisitance.

I use to say "well whatever she wants to do with her body is fine...." but now I say to that "whatever she wants to do with her body is fine, but, what she wants to do with her baby's body is not for her to decide.

Hearing about abortion has never brough tears to my eyes, but seeing photos of an aborted baby, not only hurts, it makes me WANT to actually do something to prevent this inhumanity.

23-year-old female / Houston, TX / May 9, 2006

I thought [abortion] was personally wrong but I still believed that it was a personal choice and the government should not tell you what to believe. But I've seen that it is OBVIOUSLY wrong. Murder, Rape, theft are all personal morality choices, but they still are wrong and illegal, so why should abortion be any different?
