I was a mother of 2 at the time. I was in my 30s and living in Canada. It was not an easy decision, but I knew in my bones that this was not the right time or place to have another child. My marriage was starting to crumble and I felt that ending the pregnancy was the loving choice. I had an abortion for the sake of my husband, two children and myself. We were overwhelmed then by challenges and circumstance and I knew what I could handle and what I could not. I chose to concentrate my energies on what was in front of me, in that moment. We all have limitations and I had reached mine then. As a woman, I owe the world nothing in terms of my fertility. I am a human being and, mother or not, as a person, it is my basic human right to control, plan, and choose the size of my family. I wish this right for all people.
