I was 21 years old with a 9 month old daughter...


"I was 21 years old with a 9 month old daughter when I found out I was pregnant. I had been dating my boyfriend for almost a year and we knew we couldn't afford another child. I was 10 weeks 4 days when I had the abortion. The entire experience was not as bad as I assumed. The procedure was truly painful but the post op was like a regular period (I even walked out talking and joking with nurses). I only bled for a day and with the help of Advil I felt not much pain. Now that guy is my husband and we have 2 beautiful daughters.

It was a very difficult decision to make but it was the right one. We now can plan our next child and had I had another child at 21 we wouldn't be able to do as much for our children as we do. It was all a learning experience, one I plan to teach my daughters from so they can become better women in the future." —anonymous
