My abortion is why I’m still alive.

I was 19 years old and in an abusive relationship. I became pregnant and when my boyfriend found out things came to a head. The police were called, and so was my mom. My mom. A southern Baptist raised, god fearing and pro life woman. She is the one who accompanied me to planned parenthood, paid for my abortion and prayed for me during the whole procedure (this was in the late 90s, before the pill). She knew if I stayed in that relationship, and kept that baby, it wouldn’t be good for me. She supported me. My abortion got me out of a bad relationship and I don’t regret it.
