Two years have passed since my abortion,
and I believe I made the best possible choice I could.
I was 24, broke,
far from home and anyone who loved me, the man I thought loved me apparently did
not, and I knew that bringing a child into such an environment would only subject
it to terrible pain. I was on the verge of an emotional breakdown, and two years
later still am.
I do regret having an abortion - I wish every day that
I had then the resources and the love a child deserves. But I'm glad that the
choice was mine to make, even if it was a painful one. Melissa
