I didn’t want to… but I did

Content Warning: coercion

I was in abusive relationship when I fell pregnant at 19.

I wanted my baby so bad but at 13 weeks I was marched into the operation theatre and had my baby surgically removed.

I was so heart broken, I’d never even got to see my baby as he had them turn the screen away during the first appointment.

Sometimes it hurts because at the time to me it felt like a loss not an abortion it wasn’t my choice.

But now 10 years later I can honestly say it’s the best thing that ever happened. Who knows the life we would have had.
