I was 21 when I found out I was pregnant. At first I was excited and wanted to keep the child…but realistically I was mentally unstable and the father of the child left me to deal with it alone, the only option I felt I had was to have an abortion. So as soon as I had made that decision I arranged the appointment at the abortion clinic, this too was very hard to go through but I knew what I was doing was the right thing. Not just for myself but for my unborn child. My dad held my hand, spoke to me throughout the whole procedure and wiped my tears away. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my parents by my side, whether I was pregnant or not they were there to support 100%. I’m now 24, different to who I was before, I’m happy, grateful, I know my self worth and I god damn know for sure having that abortion was the BEST decision I’ve ever made.

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