2 Abortions within 7 months

June 3, 2019

I had never wanted children growing up but we were in love and happy so I we got pregnant, I was 26 and after a long complicated pregnancy I gave birth to my son.

It was 10 months after the birth of my son, he’s father and I were already having problems. I was still recovering from postpartum depression. I was the only one working and he had just moved out, leaving me alone and pregnant to raise his child.

I knew abortion was the only option for me. So at the end of 2018, when I was 27, I had my first abortion. I’ll admit I was sad and the guilt was eating me up but I knew it was the best thing I could do.

The second abortion comes 7 months after the first… I am now 28 and this pregnancy is the result of a drunken night with a horrible ex boyfriend and a failed Plan B pill.

My second abortion happens today.
