I was 8-weeks when I decided to go through with the surgical abortion.

Prior to the date I battled between keeping it or aborting it. Deep down I wanted it, would’ve been my first born. I knew if I would have kept it, life would have changed tremendously. I just graduated college and now entering into corporate America.

Was I going to have time to balance everything? The father of the child didn’t even want it from the jump. I honestly got an abortion because of his feelings instead of my own. Now it’s been a month in a half and I’m feeling regret.

You deserve nonjudgmental
after-abortion support.
