I was 15 years old when I found out...

"I was 15 years old when I found out I was pregnant. I was angry at myself for not using protection, and I was upset because I knew I had no one I could lean on for support. I told my then boyfriend that I was pregnant, and he did agree with my decision to have an abortion.

Fortunately, I live in Canada, where abortion is free and easily accessible. I also told my (ex) best friend that I was pregnant and asked her to come with me to my appointment. She made an excuse and I ended up going alone.

I won't lie, it wasn't a positive experience, but I will never regret my decision. I can't imagine myself with a three year old child, and I know I wouldn't have been able to give that child the life they would have deserved." —anonymous
