There was a drugstore on The Drag that my roommate and I used for everything, but no way I was getting a pregnancy test there. What if I saw a sorority sister or classmate?


One summer when I was 16, I had an abortion. I was brought up in a conservative Methodist home in Texas. I had gotten pregnant by my boyfriend at the time, we were young curious hormonal teenagers.


I have type 2 cancer of the left ovary and have been doing ongoing proton and radiation treatments since July 2012. I had an abortion in November 2012. I was 33 and he was 39. I live in Texas and he lives in Louisiana. I am also the only person in my family who lives in Texas.


I started seeing a therapist again after my abortion. She tells me it’s OK to talk about this, but I know I’m not supposed to.
