I had an abortion. And 6 weeks from being a mom

In 2018, my then boyfriend now husband and I got pregnant. We had only started just living with each other, both living paycheck to paycheck. He was super supportive and said “it’s your body, I will be here to support whatever decision you want to make.” Back then I didn’t understand his statement because it was a decision that would affect both of us, but now I truly appreciate his words and letting it be a decision based on what my body would go through. Although we were taking steps to advance our relationship, we didn’t know where we would end up.


I knew right away I wanted to have an abortion because the timing just wasn’t right – we were not in a place financially, emotionally, or mentally to give the love and support we both want to provide to a family. Maybe we could have made it work, but would have struggled and brought up a child through some hard times.


Fast forward five years, we are now a few weeks away from having our first child. I have no regrets having the abortion, and we both are very much looking forward to becoming parents at this time in our lives.

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