My abortion saved my life.

Years ago I was in an abusive relationship for 2+ years with a terrible, undeserving man who I gave everything I had to. I pushed away friends and loved ones because he told me they didn’t actually care about me (in reality, they did and I just wasn’t willing to listen). After my birth control failed due to antibiotics, I wound up pregnant and he offered no help. All he said was “well you’re going to take care of it, right?”. Finally something snapped in me and I realized, wait… what am I doing with this trash human? I no longer felt the need to make excuses for him and knew this was the final straw. With the financial and transportation help of my friends and family, I was able to cut the last tie to my abuser and I am forever grateful. If I was still connected to him today I promise you I would probably have committed suicide as I had no financial means to raise a child nor did I want to be connected to him for the rest of my life. I am so happy to be alive today thanks to my abortion. This is why I will forever fight for abortion access for everyone
