I never thought I would discuss this
with anyone. You've gotta love modern technology..
I am 27, married (somewhat
happily), with 2 toddlers. I had an abortion yesterday. I am pro-choice and believe
in abortion 100% but this was possibly the hardest decision I have ever made.
I want more children but the two I have are 2 and 3. So, after discussing it with
my husband I decided this was our best option at this point in our lives. I have
to be honest, I was not totally sure going in for the appointment that I was doing
the right thing but coming home and having both kids demanding my attention at
the same time made me realize that at this time I only have so much to give and
it would not be fair to any of the parties involved to add another person to the
equation I am proud to call my family.
I don't know why I feel it necessary
to validate my feelings but thank you for giving me the forum in which to do it.Aimee
