I was in a year long relationship...

"I was in a year long relationship that I was pretty content with, until I found out I was pregnant. As soon as I saw the positive sign I started crying and I realized this was not what I wanted or who I wanted it with. I made my doctors appointment and had the pregnancy confirmed I was about 4 weeks and there was no heartbeat yet. I chose to tell my boyfriend I was pregnant and he was anti abortion and wanted me to keep the baby so I waited a few weeks to see if anything changed in our relationship. Nothing changed so I went ahead with the abortion at 9 weeks and told him I had a miscarriage and he stopped talking to me altogether. Its been almost 2 years and I do not regret choosing an abortion." —anonymous
