I had an abortion when I was 20 years old. I was in my sophomore year of college and my boyfriend had just broken up with me. This was a time of deep depression and a lot of turmoil in my life. I was in no state to be pregnant-let alone bring a child into the world.

I always knew that kids weren’t for me and this was very detrimental to my mental health. I made the decision to have an abortion so that I could move on with my life and take care of myself. Now, I am one semester away from my Master’s degree and have’t regretted the abortion at all. In fact, I’m proud of my 20-year old self for being strong enough to make the right decision for her and for me.
