To this day, abortion is still something that people struggle to talk about. We need strong women who will speak out about their own abortion experience.
1. “I had one last year. I can’t tell you the amount of women that were like ‘You will regret this’, ‘You will feel a guilt inside of you for the rest of your life’, etcetera. I didn’t feel this way.
I knew what was best for me, and it wasn’t a child. Couldn’t afford one, still in college, the dude wasn’t even my boyfriend. Immediately afterwards, honestly, I felt relieved.
I still feel relieved and thankful that we have the technology to safely terminate pregnancies.”
2. “Relieved. Sad.
Years later- Relieved.
I am glad I did not have to have my rapist’s child.”
