I had an abortion when I was 21. I was one year away from graduating college and had been dating my bf for only four months. We were using condoms, but alcohol is a fickle thing. He wanted to keep it and I didn’t. I had an older sister who had gone through a similar experience and she ended up going through with the pregnancy. After watching her struggle day in and day out, I knew I didn’t want that life. So I had an abortion. I haven’t once regretted my decision; I’ve never felt so certain about a choice in my life.
Currently, I have an awesome job that sends me to a new area code every other week auditing banks. If I’d gone through with that pregnancy, I’d never have this job. I’d be stuck to a man who I’ve come to despise. And more than likely, I’d probably be stuck living at my parents collecting Medicaid and living off the government rather than my own hands. I will never regret having an abortion. #ShoutYourAbortion
