I will never forget this experience for the rest of my days.

I was 23 years old and pregnant. I went to a famous abortion clinic on long island. I remember the young woman asking me what I would do if I were pregnant, and I told her I had no other choice but to have an abortion. I was scared and alone, yet I knew I would be taken care of. So a week later I am at the clinic waiting my turn. I was the last one called in. Since I was all by myself, the woman who was checking us in decided to stay with me during the procedure. She held my hand while I was going through it all. I will never forget this experience for the rest of my days. I am 60 years old now and have a 25 year old son. I often wonder if I had carried out the pregnancy, would my life be better. Probably not…so I get the urgency surrounding our ability to make a choice…
