I had my abortion yesterday

To be honest I was always one of those people who said I would never have an abortion . I grew up in a very religious household so that was always something that my family was against and I naturally was raised to believe that. My first two pregnancies were unplanned and I thought about abortion but I could never go through with it because I thought that if my family ever found out they would be so disappointed and probably disown me. But after hooking up with a guy I only knew for 2 months I found out I was pregnant for a third time… (+ already being a single mom of two and knowing that this new guy would not be around) I decided that this time I needed to go through with having an abortion.

I cried all the way through the process but I felt so relieved once It was done . I don’t think I could ever tell my family but honestly it’s the best decision I could’ve made. I also got my IUD put in during the procedure so I’m pretty safe from this happening again in the future. Now I really have a whole new look on abortions , and I’m really sad to know that in some places outside of Canada, women do not have the same opportunity and are forced to carry out unwanted pregnancies. I can’t imagine going through that and I’m honestly going to start looking into organizations and movements that I can join to fight for the rights of women all over the world for safe and accessible abortions.
