With all the current violence against clinics that offer abortion services,
at least in the USA, not to mention the people getting shot, I would be
VERY cautious to be sending a home address to a random stranger. 

To the poster of this request, don't take this personally.  To people who
would consider sharing their personal stories and may follow up on this
request, do think about whether you want god knows who knowing your
address (and assuming you had an abortion?).

I hope this person is indeed able to compile stories that help other
people gain insight on the topic of abortion.  Again, I hope nobody is
offended by this warning/suggestion for caution.  [If anyone wants a
glimpse of what some people in cyberspace think about abortion, and what
they think about women who have them, check out alt.abortion, or
