I am 22 and had abortion two months ago...


"I am 22 and had abortion two months ago. I slept with a part-time co-worker and got knocked up. Six weeks after we hooked up I found out I was pregnant and was 95% sure I was going to have the abortion but part of me was unsure. The father and I decided to have lunch and talk about our options and we came to an agreement to abort the pregnancy. I had the medical procedure without any anesthesia. It hurt like hell. There are times when I do regret my decision but in the end I know it was the right choice." —Jessica
