I was 20 years old and recently married with an 8 month old son. To say we were struggling is an understatement. We were lucky if we made it through the week on our minimum wage paychecks.
I was 19. Which basically means I was young and carefree. I just got out of a three year relationship with a guy that I was sure that I would marry.
I wish I had not felt so alone and I wish there wasn’t such a stigma about talking about or having an abortion and perhaps I could have had more support during my difficult decision.
Before my mother met my father, she had an abortion. I may not be here if she did not make that choice. Before I became a mother, I also had one. If I did not make that choice I may not today be the mother of twins.
