I was 22 and a semester away from graduating.

"I was 22 and a semester away from graduating. I was in love with my boyfriend but he didn't feel the same way back. It took me 2 months to get the courage to get the abortion. Although the baby wasn't conceived alone I went through this whole process alone. I was scared, sad and angry. My boyfriend wanted nothing to do with me when I told him I was having an abortion. I was sitting at the clinic waiting for my name to be called, I'll never forget I wanted to run out and not look back. But I knew it was the best thing for me and my baby. I don't regret having an abortion but I always think about the "what ifs". Although my baby wasn't born I'll always carry her in my heart. I think about her every day." —anonymous
