Angie's Story

I was in a really bad relationship. The guy was very verbally abusive. He threatened to kill me and my family. I was even too scared to go and see my mom and dad because when I got home to him it would lead to a fight. I was so scared of him. I finally left him back in October, he has not made it easy for me.

Then I found out that I am pregnant. I had to make the hardest decision in my life to have an abortion. I will not have my child going through what I went through. I know that a lot of people are not going to agree with what I have decided to do. I know now that it is the best thing for me and my child.
