I had an abortion a week after my twenty second birthday, I was five and a half weeks pregnant and it was a complete shock. My partner was suffering with depression and was on medication, he was a bad drunk and I knew we wouldn’t be raising this child together. I felt no other option but to have a termination. He wasn’t supportive and we ended up splitting a month after the termination.
