My first abortion happened in my early 20’s while I was a college student. I really felt like it was the best thing to do at that time given that I was living in a different city without family. My boyfriend at that time and I both agreed. A decision I regretted. 14 years later I found myself in a similiar situation. This time I want to keep my baby but my current boyfriend is adamant about abortion. Instead of following my heart desire I followed his. The shame, the guilt, the sadness hurts. You walk into a doctor office and they just mention abortion as an option without telling you the side affects and long-term mental and emotional pain. Abortion has caused me to enter a state of depression. Ive felt worthless and not myself at times. Abortion is not a solution to pregnancy. Abortion does not fix any problem. Abortion is a loss of life that takes a heavy toll on a parents mental state and well-being.
