I guess I'm writing this because the shame and guilt and worthlessness I felt before my abortion


“I guess I'm writing this because the shame and guilt and worthlessness I felt before my abortion isn't fair. You have support. You have love, and you can be a mother when you decide the time is right. Judgement isn't fair.

I'm recently married, and have been with my husband for about two years now. We're just buying a house and everything seems right about having a baby, from the outside. I'm still in school and don't have the time for a child right now, I've always wanted to be a stay at home mom. And for that dream to happen the time is not now.

I chose medical abortion and I wish I would've had more information on the process and the unbearable pain I dealt with. I went into planned parenthood for the first pill and they were wonderful. The 2nd day when I took the final pills 30 minutes in I blacked out due to the pain. The physical pain I had to go through was the worst I've ever experienced in my life. If there wasn't so much shame and "hush hush" I would've been more informed.

Now that the process is over there is relief but also emotional pain. And I don't know what to do at this point. Just know whatever you decide, you're so loved. And there is no shame. And your choice is valid.” —Anonymous
