On the phone with my friend I discovered that
I was pregnant. I am so grateful to her for wanting to be there for me when I
looked at that test. The minute I saw those two little pink lines I felt my heart
break and my world come to a screeching halt. I knew what I had to do even before
I knew I was pregnant, you know it's that woman's intuition thing. Kristi
unfortunately I was just beginning my senior year and if I were to bring that
pregnancy to term I would not be able to graduate. Of course I went through with
the abortion but I did not take it well. Before I was even out of the operating
room I was crying and asking for my mother (who by the way totally did not want
me to get an abortion and made sure that I knew I was the downfall of our family).
My parents were heartbroken and totally devastated. My father told me that his
worst dream had come true.
Even though my parents laid a huge guilt
trip on me and I felt like crap, I will never regret the abortion. However, I
will always remember the pain I went through.

don't feel abortion is right or wrong, it's whatever a woman can live with."
