I was 23 and I had just broken up with my jealous and controlling boyfriend. A couple weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I had no idea what to do, I told my ex boyfriend who told me there was no way it was his because I was clearly sleeping around and cheating on him.

He told me there was no way he would even go to the doctors with me to find out. To make matters worse he was already dating a girl he worked with who had 3 kids of her own (he also had a son and would often be rude to his mother and call her a bitch and useless in front of their child). I knew my child would not matter to him and I couldn’t stand the idea of him calling me useless or a bitch in front of my child. It was a tough decision to make, but I decided to get abortion via pills. I sometimes think “what if”, but overall I am happy with my decision. I work two jobs and am currently attending graduate school and will have my masters next year. I know this would never have happened if I didn’t make the choice I did.
