I’m a mother and had an abortion

I got pregnant when I was 18 years old, and the father left shortly after we found out. At that time I did not think abortion was the right choice for me because I was already in love with the baby. Fast forward… about a year ago I was 23 with a beautiful 3 year old daughter and in a serious relationship with another guy. We were smart and careful but accidents happen and I ended up pregnant. Neither of us were ready to add another baby into the mix and I already knew the struggle of having one so young. So I decided that I wanted an abortion. My boyfriend and best friend were very supportive making sure I knew it was my choice and the clinic I went to was so caring and provided so many different support options for me after.
