A few years ago I found out I was pregnant and I was not in the best situation at the time but I never thought of abortion because at that time I believed it was wrong. To each their own but it was something I could never imagine myself doing. I had a pretty rough pregnancy from the start and dealt with doctors who seemed to not really have my well being in mind. Around my 8th week of pregnancy I was informed that they could not find a heart beat so I went to seek a second opinion a couple weeks later in which I was yet again informed that the fetus was not alive and that my body had not quite recognized that I was not pregnant anymore so that’s why I hadn’t actually miscarried. I was also informed that if I did not either let them remove the fetus from my body either by D/C or with the use of misoprostol (medication that induces a period) that there was no telling how long it would take my body to realize and expel the fetus on its own and I could possibly die from it if I didn’t let them help. So I’m left to, do I let my own body possibly kill me or do I let them give me an abortion for my already not living fetus, a decision I never thought I’d have to make but I had no choice because the only other option was possible death. It was the hardest decision of my life but it saved my life. I never knew that anything like this could happen until it happened to me and it completely changed my opinion on what abortion is and why some women do it, this is the very reason that I want to fight for our right to abortion because so many of our law makers don’t understand why that option is on the table and don’t think about the varying situations that cause women to turn to this option. Sometimes it is not a choice and I hope my story reaches someone who it can help.
