Here are stories collected in 1985 that tell first hand accounts about what life was like for women with an unintended pregnancy before the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.
"I called my best friend and woke her up at midnight, to tell her I was pregnant. We couldnít wait to meet our baby. Then like a slow moving storm, our world started to darken."
But then my abortion story is pretty reflective of what other women face. I didnít want to wait 72 hours. Like all these women, I just didnít want to be pregnant anymore.
