Because I NEEDED TO DO IT!
Some may say I was selfish, other may say I'm going to hell, Others may say im a baby killer.. I DONT CARE. I was 19 years old in an abusive relationship with some 10 years my senior... I remember finding out in my girlfriends parents bathroom and crying..... calling my boyfriend and he said wll figure it out and I said there is nothing to figure out, I can't keep it..... He was very support at first.. I remember making the appointment, feeling sad, sick, selfish but relieved knowing it was going to happen and everything was going to be okay... May 9 2012 @ 8:30 AM was the appointment. The phone call the night before from the receptionist telling me I wasn't allowed to drive after the procedure so to make sure to have a safe way of getting home... I remember hanging up and crying of fear, self loathing and hatred.. I woke up in the morning a mess the closer we got to the clinic the better I felt about my decision.. My douche of an ex boyfriend was right by my side the whole time which that I thank him for..... I remember everything like it was yesterday, except the procedure itself.... I remember waking up and not feeling anything negative. Feeling like a weight had be lifted, feeling happy, feeling good! I mourned for a few days and every year around May 9 I get sad and little off. But I know I need to do it for me.. My then boyfriend threw it in my face every chance he got.... Called me a baby killer. Every time he said that I knew I did the right thing... I knew that my baby didn't deserve to grow up in a house that didn't have the love. I don't regret my abortion, I cant imagine having a 3 year old now in my life... I'm to young... I've made really bad decision in my life... This was not one of them.

What were your feelings about doing the abortion/s?

How did you do the abortion?

It was nothing I thought it was going to be... I thought everyone at the clinic was going to be cold and judgmental... But it wasn't everyone was sympathetic and loving and sweet and made that day so much easier... I love that I had such an amazing experience and I hate how this isn't the case for women around the world...

What was your situation at this time?

How did other people react to your abortion?

Only a few people know.... But very supportive
