I'm a 29 years old, a mother of two and I find myself pregnant with my third child...

"I'm a 29 years old, a mother of two and I find myself pregnant with my third child. I am a mom! I have a special needs 5 year old and a 3 year old. I love my kids to death, they are my world. Neither of them were planned, but I never thought about not keeping either one of them. I have always said that I will NEVER have an abortion. I decided this at a much younger age, when I found out that I had PCOS and may not be able to have children.

I am about 6-7 weeks pregnant with my third child. Today is a Saturday and on Monday I am calling a local abortion clinic to schedule an abortion. This was NOT an easy decision. Me and my fiancé (not the father of my other two kids) have been going back and forth on this for the past week since we found out. Yes, I want another child someday... but that someday is not now. There are more things against us than going for us (work schedules, kids schedules and school, lack of sitters, our goals,) but the ultimate deciding factor is that This pregnancy DOES NOT feel right.

It's in my gut, and in my heart that this is not something that I can do right now, I cannot have a baby right now. I feel great about my decision. YES, I have done all the research and I have seen the images and read the stories. If abortion was not right for me, I never would have thought it as a possibility." —Tina
