I had an abortion about 3 weeks ago. I am still recovering from the aftereffects but not once throughout the process did I waver in my decision to do what I did.
I am 21 years old. I will soon graduate from college. I have a loving family. I am in a stable relationship with a man who loves me dearly. When I told him that I was pregnant, he told me that it was my body, and that he would support me no matter what my decision was.
I am not ready to have a child.
He paid for the medical pill, and supported me emotionally through these last few weeks. It was emotional and sometimes painful, but we are confident that this was the right choice for everyone involved. Because of him (and convenient access to women’s health clinics in NYC) I can sleep easy at night knowing that I did not bring an unwanted child into the world.
