Abortion story #780
I had an abortion when I was 17. My boyfriend and I had talked about having a child together, but when I actually got pregnant he told me if I didn't "get rid of it,” he'd break up with me.

I had recently moved to a different city with just my parents and gotten a new job which I was scared about as well. I felt so lonely as I couldn't see my friends or my boyfriend, so I went ahead and had the abortion in October 2018. It was horrible and I've regretted it ever since. I didn't speak to anyone at my work for at least three months after the abortion... Click here to read the rest.
