My story

by Kath

I had just turned 25. I found out I was pregnant in April of 2020. I’ve always wanted to be a mother but I knew this was not the right time. With COVID shutting the country down, chance of losing my job and my relationship on edge, it was the right decision for me. My partner at the time agreed and was supportive. I made an appointment with Planned Parenthood to get the pill. Although I knew it was the right thing for me, it felt like the longest 48 hours of my life. I am forever grateful to have had resources to have a safe abortion. One thing I wish I had done differently is open up sooner. I felt so alone until I finally told my mom months later and she told me she had an abortion at my age as well. You are not alone. Abortion was the right decision for me and I have never had a regret.
