My Abortion Story

by Anonymous

January 27, 2021

Growing up I always pictured myself being a mother and starting a family. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be getting an abortion at the age of 22, but I did. I found out I was pregnant on October 28th, 2020 and went through my medical abortion process on November 17th (1st pill) and November 18th (2nd pill). I was fortunate enough to have the guy’s support through the whole process, but it didn’t make it easier. Even though it was the right choice due to us not being together and us still figuring out our own lives it doesn’t take away the guilt, hurt, and anger I feel now. I haven’t told anyone in my family, so carrying this grief in secret is draining me which is why I wanted to share my story. I don’t want to forget, but I want to be able to live again.

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