It’s okay

I only just turned 18 when I found out I was pregnant. I was with my boyfriend at the time we were together for 3 years, it was a very violent toxic relationship.

I fell pregnant to the wrong person at the wrong time, I only recently just left school and started a full time job. My partner wasn’t supportive at all throughout my pregnancy, choosing to have an abortion was a very difficult decision for me. But now looking back if I kept my baby I would still be stuck in an abusive relationship.

I still think about my decision daily, but I know one day the timing will be right and I will be able to have kids in a safe home.

People who need abortions should feel safe and respected throughout their procedure. I am grateful for the staff who were there that day.

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