I am 20 years old; and I have decided to have an abortion...


"I am 20 years old; and I have decided to have an abortion. I am planning to have the abortion next month with my boyfriend holding my hand through the whole process.

My boyfriend and I are still in the early years of college for engineering. School is going to be long and hard. We can barely afford ourselves let alone a child and the medical cost. Before anyone says anything about adoption I had had a difficult childhood which lead to CPS, so I can't do that.

We do plan to get married and start a family, just not right now. When we do have kids we will have our careers and a house, which is more than we had growing up." —Anonymous
