I’m not ashamed. I am happy with my decision. I was 25. Married mother of 2. I had had an m/c 2 years earlier which had made me really sad. My husband and I had hit a rough spot financially. I should have been on BC but it would have costed gas money to get it and we didn’t have it.

So we had unprotected sex when I was ovulating. I got pregnant. I didn’t know it at the time. My period always comes on a 28-day cycle. That September it didn’t. I KNEW I had to be pregnant. Test confirmed I was. I knew we couldn’t keep it. I had always been pro-choice. I knew my options. My husband and I talked and we knew we had to think about the baby. How we didn’t want to get on assistance of any kind. So I made the appointment and we figured out a way to raise $600 so I could get the abortion. He was there with me every second. It wasn’t scary like they make it out to be on tv. It’s been almost 3 years and I know I made the best choice for me and my family.
