Planned a pregnancy with husband, then changed my mind the night of the positive pregnancy test.
I had an abortion a few days later at 4 weeks and a few days. It is the size of a POPPY SEED. Think about that. It needed my body to grow into what could have been a baby but wasn’t at that point yet, obviously. I was devastated, went through counseling, still think about it but it’s getting so much better.
I have had a miscarriage before and two children. I know how hard it is to care for babies and children, and I know how hard it is going through a loss. I chose to go through another loss for my family, for my children. I need to be there for them. I need to respect my husbands wishes of keeping at 2 children.
I can get through this. I want this to be a lesson for other women, abortions can be good and the right moral choice. It was a poppy seed with potential but not a baby.
