My abortion at 20 weeks pregnant

I started writing my abortion story and realized it included a lot of justification, which doesn’t matter, so here is the simple version:  I had an abortion at 20 weeks pregnant and it was the hardest and best decision I’ve ever made.  I have the most supportive partner and feel lucky that we were in complete agreement about it.  We have two kids we love more than anything in the world, and we used the most flawed logic ever when we found out I was unexpectedly pregnant and concluded that because we *could* have another baby, that we should. I am so, so grateful that when we finally realized how wrong we were, we lived in a state where I was able to access the medical care I needed quickly and safely from compassionate providers and staff.  I am now very happily not pregnant.

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