I had an abortion and I don’t feel bad about it

I have PCOS and struggled to get pregnant with the two children I have, so when I left my husband and started dating again I didn’t ever think that I could accidentally get pregnant. I have a latex allergy and birth control makes my chronic migraines significantly worse, so I opted to sleep with people I trusted and use other methods.

I ended up pregnant by one of my good friends, and we both immediately knew what we needed to do. I already had 2 children that I was struggling to take care of, and I was not going to put their livelihood at risk by adding another child.

I chose to abort, and while the procedure was relatively painful, I walked out feeling better than I had in weeks.  Now I am engaged to a great person and we plan to add to our family later on in life. I couldn’t ever be where I am now if it wasn’t for my abortion.

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