Abortion as Mercy

by Emilia

September 10, 2018

I fell pregnant at the age of 17 and knew I would not be the mother that a child would need… we have a history of children having children in our family and severe intergenerational trauma. I knew then that it would not be fair to my child to continue that family trend and that I would have a lot of personal work to do to not pass down the abuse I received to my own children. It was a decision I never have regretted although I once had a “therapist” try to shame me about it. I strongly believe as a child who didn’t feel wanted that EVERY child deserves to be wanted!

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