Annie's Story

I am a 33 year old divorced woman, who has four children and a live-in boyfriend. I just found out I am pregnant again and have already made the appointment for an abortion. I came to this conclusion much to the dismay of my best friend. I am comfortable with the knowledge that for financial, physical, and emotional reasons I choose not to have this baby.

I also thank God I live in a country that gives me that options. I am not looking forward to the protesters that I have been warned about but I am prepared, I have made my peace with myself and God and that is what is important to me.
