My Abortion

by Anonymous

March 14, 2022

I was 25 and he was married to someone else. We ended up together anyways and now have a planned child. I always wonder what if … I don’t think that I regret it, but I do think about it from time to time. Sometimes we make the best decisions we can at the time. I spent a lot of time researching what a five week old embryo looked like which helped me to feel better about my decision. I think for many women there are lasting feelings that come with abortion that we don’t talk about. I felt relieved after my abortion but also had bouts of “What have I done?” It’s been almost five years and I’m still healing and rationalizing what that moment meant in my life.

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