"I got pregnant in 1975 which was the year I graduated from college with a B.S. in Education. I did not have a steady boyfriend at the time and could not be certain of the father. I did not want to raise a child on my own and also did not think I would be hired as a teacher while single and pregnant.
I did not spend much time making my decision for the abortion. I have never suffered emotionally after the abortion. It was the right decision for me at the time and I am grateful I could do it legally. I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder several years later. I then learned that promiscuity is a symptom of bi-polar disorder." —Barbara
