So Glad Abortion is Legal, Safe, and Affordable

It was 1995 and I was twenty-one. I had been dating my boyfriend for almost one year and became pregnant unexpectedly. We were not ready to be parents. I was so glad that safe and affordable abortion was available to me. I was about four weeks pregnant when I had the abortion and afterwards I felt relieved. We were careless and became pregnant, but because of the people who fought for safe, legal and affordable abortions before my time, our unexpected pregnancy didn’t cause a huge disruption in our lives. We continued to date and seven years later became parents to a baby boy at a time when we were ready to take on the responsibilities of parenting.
