Waiting was the hardest part – both times

I had 2 abortions. One medical (the pills) and one surgical (the in clinic procedure). I was 22 and 24, waiting tables and bar tending. I was dating my now husband, and we both 100% agreed both times abortions were necessary, both from a financial perspective but also because we don’t want kids. 6 years later, we still, truly, do not want children.

I went to a planned parenthood in Boston, and my goodness you gotta love a blue state! Now I live in Texas where you get the nightmare protestors, and an extra serving of shame.

Both times I remember being pleasantly surprised when they kicked out my bf and made sure this was my choice too, not just his influence.

Pro life people need to know: I never needed more time to consider my options, and I’ve never felt sadness or regret. There was only one option, ever. The worst part was waiting.

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