I had a shitty boyfriend.  I was told “you’re getting an abortion right.” I didn’t know what to do and I wanted to make my boyfriend happy at the time. I did what he wanted, while he was at home having girls over I went and got an abortion by myself. We promised not to tell, although years later I found out he told his whole school. He acted like he was scared and worried and “didn’t know what to do.” Although, I wouldn’t take it back, I do wonder if he wasn’t apart of the equation what my decision would’ve been.

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