"My first abortion was when I was 21 years old a mother of two sons and a college student as well. I used a condom but the condom slipped off my partner and ended up balled up inside of me. I thought nothing of it and the next month on Christmas day I took a pregnancy test and when I learned that I was pregnant I immediately knew that I didn't want to continue the pregnancy.

I was almost finished with my degree and I had two kids who I needed to take care of. I ended up making my own appointment and taking myself to the clinic. I don't regret my decision and it has made me very grateful to have that as an option." —Jackie H.
