Sharon Osbourne's story

Sharon Osbourne, wife of rock star Ozzy Osbourne, was pressured into an unwanted abortion when she was 17, by her mother.

She says that the traumatic ordeal at an abortion clinic as the lowest point of her life.

"It [the abortion facility] was full of other young girls, and we were all terrified. 

“I howled my way through it, and it was horrible. It was the worst thing I ever did.

“I would drink so much I would wake up with men whose names I didn't know."

After marrying Ozzy, Sharon had three miscarriages before doctors found her earlier abortion had damaged her insides and she needed surgery. 

Like many post-abortive women, Sharon was also troubled by an eating disorder and suicidal feelings.
