Sky's Story

On February 12, 2000 I had an abortion at the age of 15.

I was dating a 19 year old and was a runaway. Before I found out I was pregnant I was really getting into drugs. I thought there would be so many problems with the baby's health that abortion was the answer.

Now I can think of so many reasons why the abortion was the only way.

I was so depressed afterwards that I shut down, started drugs again, then I started sleeping with people to try to get my baby back. Now I am feeling a great deal better although at times I feel really sad. This and many other websites and friends have helped me get out of my rut.

Thank you for reading this,
