Abortion and I’m Grown

by Adriana

When I was 34, I had been talking to this man for a year and a half.  We started dating and I immediately got pregnant.  We dated for about two months. He had aspirations to be a cop and was going to school for EMT.


When I arrived to his house one day, he showed me his school books. He was excited about his road to school. I couldn’t bring myself to tell him I was pregnant. I thought he’d hate me if I derailed his career plans. He already had one child with someone he had a one night stand with. I didn’t think it was a good outcome for me. I never told anyone.


The abortion was fast and lonely. Five years later, I know I made the right choice. I don’t regret it. I would have been a single mom.


Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
