I had an abortion, because I felt it was my only option at the time. The biggest thing I remember is just being fearful. Fearful of my parents. Fearful of the procedure. So much confusion.
I don't remember much about the procedure other than cramping and pain. Everything felt cold. Afterwards I felt somewhat relieved but also sad and confused.
As time went on I have always wondered “what if”.
I’m finally ready to share my story and help others to choose differently than I did, and that’s why I’m silent no more.
