My boyfriend and I were only three months in a relationship.I was 18 and he was 23. He was my first sexual partner. We used condoms about 1/2 of the time, and I kept saying how I needed to get on birth control. Well, we got pregnant.

Thankfully, we were able to go to a clinic one hour away. That was in 2015. In a few months, we all have been together 3 years! We’re engaged, living together, and we hold no regret/shame over our abortion. We just weren’t ready, and that’s all the reason we need. Although I gotta say, I’m so thankful I had a job (my abortion cost $625), access to a car, and a supportive boyfriend. I’m not sure what I would have done sans.
