“After the abortion, my boyfriend and I stayed together for about a year even though I couldn’t stand to look at him and didn’t want him to touch me. When we broke up I met other guys with whom I had empty sexual relationships. I lost all self-respect. Life really had no meaning, and I felt like I was just going through the motions…”

“At first I felt relieved. My body healed pretty quickly after my abortion. But I was feeling so bad inside. I was afraid that if I started to cry, I may never stop”
