No Regrets

While struggling with infertility in my 30s, I would occasionally be asked if I now regretted having an abortion as a teenager. I always answered no, without hesitation. For me, one is not related to the other. At 17, I wasn’t the same person. I wasn’t in a secure relationship, I wasn’t able to support myself and, most importantly, I didn’t have the skills, confidence, or maturity to raise a child. Even if I am never able to have a child of my own, I will never regret having an abortion. I know it was the right decision at the time, and I am so grateful I was able to make that decision for myself.

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