I just recently found out that I'm pregnant...

"I just recently found out that I'm pregnant and as a recently single mother of a two year old boy and a one year old boy I've decided that it would be in my (and my boys) best interests to get an abortion. I'm not really sure how I'll feel emotionally afterwards and I think if I never have a girl I'll end up wondering for the rest of my life, but I've just been accepted to college for nursing and I'm trying to get back on my feet. I was dating a guy for about 2 months but after we broke up I slept with my ex which makes the whole thing even more confusing. I know that this is the right decision for me and I plan on having more children eventually but for now its not the right thing for my family. I am aware I may regret it someday but I need to do what's best for myself and my boys. Also, with my last two I had c-sections and am not a good candidate for vbac so there could be a possibility that they would say I couldn't have anymore after this because my babies were so close together and delivered by surgery." —Emma
