"I am 20. I've been dating my boyfriend for 2 years, almost. I got a medication abortion last month. I'm starting college soon and I felt I couldn't handle a child. I, sometimes, think back on my choice and sometimes regret it but I realized it was for the better.

My boyfriend went with me to my appointments. He comforted me. When I had it done, I didn't have any regrets. I would look at the other women who were crying and wonder why I wasn't, but I realized I wasn't being selfish, I was doing what was best for me at the time. And I think about it but I can't regret it anymore." —Anonymous
