Abortion Poems by Teens

Poetry by Teens Who Have Had Abortions

What does it mean to have a body growing inside of you? What does it feel like? Is it bad to have an abortion? Everyone has their own opinion on the moral implications of having an abortion. Most women report that being pregnant feels like having a baby inside them and that it is psychologically painful to have an abortion. There are times when having an abortion seems like the right thing to do. For example when the mother is unprepared or her health is at stake. Others insist on a woman's right to choose. We'd like to hear your thoughts and feelings.
