I am 61 years old and had an abortion when I was a young woman. It was a legal abortion, performed in a clinic, and there were no complications. It was the right decision to have an abortion at the time because I was too young, too immature and my life was too unstable to bring a child into it. In my 30s I had 2 beautiful children who are the joy of my life. I believe I was correct in having an abortion when I did but I also believe that I should have had better access to birth control so that I would not have become pregnant in the first place.
