We had an abortion and we don’t regret it

I was probably 3 weeks pregnant in this photo. Found out I was pregnant maybe a week after this. It is a photo I will always keep.

First of all the guy on my left was and still is my boyfriend. He is very pro-choice and he was okay with me posting our photo on here, just as long as we remained anonymous.

I have always been pro-life, never did see why a woman would have an abortion. But at 19 I found myself pregnant. Got the courage on telling my boyfriend and he was beyond supportive with me and would go with whatever decision I made. Originally I was thinking of having the baby, but doubt and fear and more doubt just kept on flooding in.

On March 8th at the 10 week mark we decided on abortion. It was not an easy decision, but we knew it was best.

I had my abortion at 11 weeks 3 days. By choice I was awake for the procedure, I just felt more comfortable doing it this way. I’ll admit that when I was getting prepared for the abortion that i nearly said no. The doctor was a wonderful lady but when she was dilating me the pressure become uncomfortable (no pain as my cervix was numb). The doctor was nice enough on just letting me breathe, and after a minute or so she started the abortion.

For the next week I had mixed emotions about all of it. I sometimes did cry but I told myself that I did the right thing. I don’t regret what I did and I know that later on in life I will be a mother and I’ll be ready when that time comes.

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