    Yes. Do I regret it? Yes, but it was the sane choice at the time. I was 14, pregnant by rape to my mothers husband (i refuse to call him stepfather) and living in a womens refuge centre. I could barely care for myself practically, and emotionally not even that.
    As it was I almost suicided. Looking back, I can't say I would have been able to give the baby the love it deserved, so I made the right choice.
    I have a friend, however, that had her firstborn daughter at 12, as a result of rape, and has raised a beautiful loving girl with support of her family. Maybe if circumstances had been different I could have carried little bub and done something similar...i think that is my regret. Reality being what it is though it would not have worked.

    No I haven't.
    I would honestly consider it if my husbands vasectomy failed and I became pregnant again.
    My mental health and my family would not survive another pregnancy and baby.

    I haven't.

    But I haven't been in a situation where I have needed to make the choice.

    I believe in the right to choose and if it was the right decision for me/my family/the unborn embryo then I would.

    I never want one. Happy for other people to do what they like though. Kind of a sensitive thing for me as my great grandmother died of a backyard abortion .

    I haven't, and not sure I ever would/could... but I haven't been in that position before. Well, I guess I was with DD, but i was so staunchly pro-life back then that I didn't even nearly consider it as an option. Having a child though... it made me realise the realities for being a parent, and I began to understand why many people would not be ready for that, and how it would be unfair for everyone for them to be forced into that life when alternatives are available.

    If I fell pregnant right this very instant I honestly have no idea what I'd do. I don't want a baby now... I've been little more than a mother for all of my adult life until last year (study) and this year (work). I am not prepared to give that up again just yet. I suspect DP would want me to keep the baby, so I probably would... but in all honestly, I'm just glad I have the option to NOT have another baby if contraception fails me.

    What about Victoria? Plenty of clinics here and some other states you have not mentioned, also, medicare covers a portion of it.

    I think it is very readily available, and I'm totally grateful for it.

    Maybe but certainly not all states and they do have restrictions. Mine was $500 after the medicare rebate. I am grateful it is accessible to some women, don't get me wrong I just don't think it is as accessible as you believe especially for isolated women and those that can't afford it.

    I understand your struggle and coming from your view I totally get why you would never. But what about from the other side where lets say a woman never ever wanted children, never wanted to be a mother and contraception kept failing her? Surely given what she wants for herself she has the right to decide to terminate. Not every conception is considered to be a miracle.

    I replied to this poll when I was pregnant, 4 years ago. I answered the last option. I am surprised how much things have changed for me now that I actually have a child. I would have one in the future if I wasn't in a place where I could cope with another child.
