It’s OK to be Unsure


Note: The Exhale Pro-Voice After-Abortion Stories Hub includes people’s stories of their experiences and emotions, exactly as they have written them in. We do not edit these stories at all, and the content that follows this message is exactly as we received it. We know that people’s experiences are complex, and these stories reflect the many emotions they may be feeling after their abortions. From relief to grief, and everything in between, and all at the same time, we’re here for you.

I was unsure of my choice at first, but I knew getting an abortion was the best choice for me. I can’t financially support myself right now and I’m not mentally or physical prepared for a child.

I’m still young and not where I want to be. It would be selfish to bring a kid in to struggle with me right now, but the future is bright.

    I commend you for thinking of the child in this way! I think it’s so important to consider the quality of life of the child first
