"It was September 2011. I suspected that i was pregnant as i was dating my EX. We were good together and had dated for close to 2 and a half years. I told him once while in bed that I suspected I was pregnant, he turned away from me and said he was not ready to be a young dad. I decided to go for a pregnancy test the next day. When my results confirmed that I was pregnant and the pharmacist suggested a doctor who could perform a safe abortion, I did not hesitate. I went to the clinic the next day and had the abortion. I know now that that was the best decision I made for myself knowing that I have a choice to have a child only when I feel ready." —anonymous
