"I got knocked up over spring break—as a 32-year old married graduate student. Having children was never something that my husband and I considered to be an option.
The decision to terminate the pregnancy was easy—anxiously waiting out the week until my Saturday appointment was hard. Clinicians who treated me with respect performed my safe, legal abortion. Every day since then, I am grateful that I had access to this care and that my birth control slip-up did not determine the path of my career or my life. No regrets." —Jess
