The Most Selfless Act I Have Ever Committed

Initially, I was telling myself that I was unable, weak, and selfish for wanting to carry through with my abortion. I was alone and lacking any sort of support. I took myself to the clinic and made the decision on my own terms.

But, I quickly realized that this was the most selfless act I had ever committed, because I knew that I loved them (my baby) so much that I couldn’t bring them into this world with inadequate care: I want to be everything to my future child/children, and I couldn’t do that at age 19.

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