I was 23 years old when I got pregnant. I was neither emotionally nor financialy ready to have a child. My boyfriend, being catholic, did not agree with my decision but he took me to Planned Parenthood and helped pay for it.

I cried during the procedure but knew it was the right thing to do. The relationship did not survive my decision. We broke up, I applied to law school and moved out of state. 21 years later I am happily married to the love of my life, we have two beautiful children and I am so greatful that I had the ability to make the choice that I did. No shame. No regret.
