It wasn’t time

I was 18 and my boyfriend was 17 when I realised I was pregnant. I felt so sick and I was shocked this had happened but I had no doubt I needed an abortion. Luckily back then I just had to quickly speak to a counsellor who coached me a bit and I could access the abortion soon after. It wasn’t pleasant but it wasn’t as bad as I’d worried it might be. Now I have three beautiful children with my husband, very much wanted. If I were to fall pregnant now, I’d definitely have another abortion. It’s healthcare and I hate that so many want to take these safe options away from people who need it. I don’t regret it at all.
