I am 24 years old and I have had 2 abortions...

"I am 24 years old and I have had 2 abortions, in a country where abortion is largely illegal. The first time I had one I was in my last year of college and I found out I was pregnant after I had been raped by my friend's boyfriend. The decision to abort the baby then was a hard one, but one I had to take since I was still trying to get over the rape. I had a hard time adjusting to it since there was no one I could talk with for fear of being judged. I recently had another abortion. I think I could have kept it, but when I found out I was pregnant, all I kept thinking of was the fact that I was not ready. I barely have a job and bring a child into this world in my situation is not fair. I think about it a lot, but I think it was for the best." —Anonymous
