I had my first, and hopefully last, abortion today...

"I had my first, and hopefully last, abortion today. Happy St. Patrick's day to me, right? I'm very sad but I knew I had to do it. I'm 25 and have been with my boyfriend off and on for 6 years. I found out I was pregnant 4 days before my appointment. I was nervous, scared, and fully confident.

The only thing is, I am 25, done with school, and have a good job. So why can't I do this? I can't afford it and I know my boyfriend will end the relationship because of it. There is a part of me that is very sad to miss this opportunity, but I really think it's best.

The procedure was painful and scary but only lasted a few minutes. I'm spending the day recovering and watching '16 and Pregnant', how convenient. If there is any part of you that says 'I don't want this', don't do it." —Stefanie
