Kelly's Story

I I am 25 years old and single. I just found out 5 days ago that I am 5 wks pregnant, I have decided to have an abortion and I will be going through with the surgical procedure on Monday (in 4 days). The father and I have only been dating 2 months. He has been very supportive of my decision. This has been the hardest decision I have ever had to make. I believe God has given me this wonderful gift of life but I feel it would be utterly selfish of me to bring a child into this world with me being completely unprepared. I am choosing to give back this gift. I know there will come a time in my life where God will give me a chance to experience this gift that time I will be more prepared. Our bodies are our temples and we have the RIGHT to choose whatever we may with our bodies!

Thank you for having this site and I think it is wonderful that woman all over the world can feel comfortable with sharing their experiences. Thank you.

Hope is a thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without words
And never stops at all.
