I had an abortion because I had been laid off...


"I had an abortion because I had been laid off from my job and had no income for months, I had no health insurance, and the father was in Iraq and did not want to keep it. We are still together 2 years later. The only thing I regret is the situation, not the abortion. I wish I had a stable life and could have kept it. The abortion itself was very traumatizing and was absolutely the worst time in my life. Because of this experience I wish to never be pregnant ever again."
