"I was a junior in College and had been dating a guy for three months when we got pregnant. My boobs hurt and I had gained some weight, somehow I just knew I was pregnant. I took my test and it was positive.

The guy I was dating ticked all the boxes. He was smart, cute, had a nice family and he was an high up, young engineer (basically had it all together). I don't know why but i immediately knew that I shouldn't have this baby.

When I told him, I admit I didn't really give him a choice, I had my mind made up. I was not going to have it. He didn't fight me or talk to me about any aspect about the situation. I got the abortion and we dated for 9 more months.

We never spoke about my hurt, my decision or how he felt. Years later I told my mom and she said she wished I had told her. She said she would have told me to have the baby.

Today I am happily married to a wonderful man who knows about my abortion. He and I are very exited to start a family together." —C
