My Abortion #21: Carol

Roar will publish a first-person story about abortion, “My Abortion: A Daily Story,” every day for at least 365 days.

At NotAlone, Sherry, Beth, and Brett Matusoffs firmly believe that by remaining silent around the issue of abortion, we perpetuate the myths that have dominated the debate. Thus, they invite  women from all over the country to share their abortion stories to change the conversation and fight back for women’s reproductive rights.

Even when using birth control, a woman can get pregnant. This is Carol’s story.

I am 70 years old and have 4 grown children and 5 abortions. Thank god for Roe v. Wade. I failed on every form of birth control known to man: nursing a newborn, diaphragm, IUD, and finally two pregnancies after a tubal ligation.

My last daughter knows she was born after having my tubes tied, but I have never told my kids the whole story. my marriage disintegrated and other things occurred. With the help of the 12-step programs I worked through much of the pain. I applaud what you are doing
