When I was 22, I found I was eight weeks pregnant with my ex husband’s child. We had a violent relationship both physical and emotional abuse. I knew I would not be able to have children with him if I wanted to live. I am a type 1 diabetic and the doctor said it would not be smart for me to carry out the pregnancy.


If I would’ve been forced to carry that baby, I would’ve eventually ended my own life. I will never regret my decision. I am proud my abortion gave me a second chance at life.  I am now with the man of dreams who understands and respects the fact I do not want to be a mother. Getting an abortion was the best thing I could do for me.
