I had an abortion when I was 18...

May 21, 2012

"I had an abortion  when I was 18, a month before I graduated high school. I was terrified because  I wasn't ready for a baby and neither was he. My parents told me if I wanted  the baby, I'd have to move out. I had no place to go. I didn't want the baby,  but I felt I couldn't confide in them anymore.


My then-boyfriend's mom helped me make the appointment and took me to the clinic that day. I'll never be able to make that up to her. Even though I am no longer dating her son, we remain close. That's what I took away from the pregnancy and the abortion: I know who  I can really depend on when times get scary."  —Tina W.
