I was with the man I thought I would marry and we talked about having a child. I got pregnant, he shied away. I considered the possibility of being a single mother, but knew I wasn’t in a position to do that financially or otherwise. There were protesters outside when I went to have my abortion. I went through with it. Since then, I have finished my bachelor’s degree. I’ve also been accepted to a PhD program. Neither of these things would have been viable for me if I had made a different decision. I am exactly where I want to be.
