I'm 63 now and had my abortion in my mid-20s...

October 20, 2014

"I'm 63 now and had my abortion in my mid-20s, within the first couple years of its becoming legal after Roe v Wade. My then-husband and I were divorcing and I had just gotten back into college on a full-time basis and I had started feeling like I was moving ahead in my life. I didn't feel capable of being a mother.

The timing of the pregnancy was horrible and there was no question but that I should get an abortion. I did, & I haven't regretted it for one minute. I've since gone on to finish college, gone on to get a master's degree and establish a satisfying and well-paid career in public employment. No one but the woman who is pregnant should have any say in what she does with her body."  —Ruth
