    Yes, it was the right thing for me to do at the time.

    But he came back to me and bought a little friend, so we are all happy again

    I had one at 21.

    I wouldn't say I regret it *exactly* - but I pretty much had a nervous breakdown afterwards. I remember running into a counsellor's office at uni and they thought I'd just been raped or something, I was so devestated.

    I fully support every woman's right to choose whether or not to continue her pregnancy, adn to be totally supported in her decision, whatever it is.

    I was talking to DH about this last night, coincidentally.

    The circumstances would have to be exceptionally dire for me to consider this; for example, risk of death to me or child, severe disabilities, in the occasion of rape.

    Otherwise, no.

    However I am PRO CHOICE and fully support any woman's decision to choose a termination if it is what she needs and wants.

    I have never had one, never considered one and don't think I ever could.

    No and I wouldnt. But I think everyone has a right to their own decision whether I agree or not

    No I haven't, would definetly depend on age and my circumstances at the time as to wether I would get one or not. If I got pregnant now I would consider it one of my options.

    It's not something I personally would ever consider, but I don't judge anyone who chooses to have one.

    I took my friend to a clinic the other day to have one and it was the most harrowing experience of my life, I would never want to go through it myself.

    At risk of being judged harshly, I will be totally open about my experiences.

    I have had 2 terminations.

    One when I was 21 and was involved in a relationship with a married (but separated) drug addict who was still sleeping with his 'wife' behind my back and ended up almost killing me. I have no regrets at all. Not the type of man I would want to have a child to and not the type of man I would want to father my child. He and his wife had 2 kids he was slowly destroying lives for already.

    My second was between my 2 children. DP at the time and I were in a very bad state and to have had another child at the time would have made things terribly bad. As it turns out we split up and then got back together, had our 2nd DD and split up 18 months later anyway. There was a lot of anger and hate between us for a long time. Again, I have no regrets. It was what was best for us at the time. I was about to become a single Mummy and I would not have been able to cope with the changes that was about to bring and having another baby at the time. I was barely coping already At the time I was pretty much suicidal and hated myself and everything in my life.

    ETA: I just wanted to add I was taking birth control pills both times. Wasn't like I was just DTD without any thought for the consequences at all.
