I was already a single mom trying to raise a 9 month old daughter by myself. I slipped up and had unprotected sex with my daughter’s father.
I knew I wanted to give my daughter as much love and support as I could. Another child would be a burden that I could and wouldn’t want to face alone. It was the right choice for my daughter and I at the time. I had to put us first! So I had an abortion without telling her father. I still think what our life’s would be like today with another mouth to feed. But I’m at peace with the fact that it was the right choice for me in the situation that I was in. I’m thankful that a safe abortion was available and an option for me.
