You are worthy.

This decision was both the easiest and most difficult choice of my life; but thank god I have the right to choose.

My story is probably similar to others – my birth control of 8 years failed me. I’m in a loving, happy relationship with my fiancé. We both knew that keeping it was not an option for us, financially or emotionally. We aren’t ready.

And so we made the decision to have an abortion. I live in a deeply red state. Due to COVID, I had to go alone. I walked past protesters, screaming at me that I was a murderer. I cried. I felt numb. But at the end of the day, I knew this was my choice, and it was the right one.

I don’t know who is reading this; a young person, alone in their room, fighting back tears on what to do. Just know this one simple fact; you are strong, you are loved, you are not alone, and this is your decision. Above all, you are worthy.

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