I ended up making the decision to terminate a wanted pregnancy after my relationship with the father turned abusive. I didn’t feel like I could protect her or myself or take care of her on my own since I didn’t have much familial support.


I was 25 weeks and 4 days. I went to the most amazing clinic with the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. They took great care of me, and helped ensure the physical pain wasn’t bad so that I could handle the emotional pain I experienced.


I’m still sad and struggling but the way I was treated made all of the difference. I’m grateful I was able to get my abortion even though I had to travel from Florida to Maryland. Abortion is necessary and normal.
