I never felt guilty

by Anonymous

I recently had an abortion at age 32.

I’m happily married, have a high income, health insurance, own a home etc. I just do not ever want to have kids. The pressure from everyone around me to keep the fetus because I “seemed ready” was overwhelming. But my spouse and I knew abortion was the right choice for us. I was on birth control when I got pregnant, so I got my tubes tied after the abortion.

I have no guilt or complicated feelings. This wasn’t a difficult decision for me. Sometimes an abortion story doesn’t need to be about all the things in your life going wrong that prevent parenthood. Some of us just never want to be parents. I’ve never felt more free.

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