Well, I have always been pro-choice, and figured that if ever faced with a situation of an unwanted pregnancy, I would have no problem having an abortion. But then something happened, and now I feel terrible.
I was in a relationship that was going nowhere. He was abusive, and I was afraid to leave him. Finally, I worked up the courage to leave, thanks to my new partner, a wonderful man that has helped me through it all and is showing me what love really is. When I met him, I decided it was time to leave the other guy. So I did. It was awful, had to call the cops and even get a restraining order against him since he threatened to kill me (and I really thought he would). A week after leaving him, I had sex with the new guy. I hadn´t had a period in between, and guess what.... I got pg and didn´t even know who the father was!!!! I NEVER, EVER thought this could happen to me, but it did. I talked it over with my new partner, and he was afraid that if the baby wasn´t his, then what, and honestly, the idea of having a kid that was the other guy´s really freaked me out. So we decided to abort. Went to the clinic and first thing they did was give me a shot that makes the fetus´ heart stop. After that they did an ultrasound, and they told me I was 5 weeks along, which meant that it was my new partner´s baby. But it was too late, since the shot had been given. So I had the abortion, went home, and cried for two days.
I keep telling myself that I am
