I was 21 and I was traveling. While abroad I was raped by my tour guide. I was leaving the country the very next day and all I could think about was going somewhere new and forgetting what he did to me that night when he took everything. I was depressed but felt things coming back around, until I found out I was pregnant. I was not in a place mentally where I could go through with a pregnancy and raise this man’s child. The morning sickness, the cramping around the clock, constant reminders of what was happening inside of me. Constant reminders of the night when my right to say no was ignored. In order to have a SAFE abortion I had to travel 18 hours total across state lines due to the restrictive laws in my state. I cried for hours but I don’t regret it. It was my choice, my right, and I will not let my rights be ignored again.
