"I honestly think my abortion was the hardest experience of my life. I found out I was pregnant at 22 years old with my boyfriend of 8 months. My boyfriend unfortunately at the time was on drugs and was only 20 years old with no job, no place and no goals at the time. I felt alone. And I knew right away when I was pregnant.
I cried when I found out. I was hurt bc I knew I couldn't keep the baby. My boyfriend wanted to have it. He just suggested his grandmother take care of it since I was living in California with no family to help support me. I didn't want that for my child. I wanted to have everything for him or her. It's only been 6 months since my abortion and I still cry about it. Honestly it was the best decision because my boyfriend and I are no longer together. He's in rehab getting help. I finally started school and working to stable my life so I can finally start a family of my own." —Marie
