Nicohle's Story

I had an abortion yesterday, and feel suprizingly well. I'm a 16 year old wife and mother of an 9 month old little girl. They are my whole life. We were really thrown for a loop when i found out i was pregnant again. I was on the pill so we were both very upset this happened in the first place, but i was devestated because i knew what i was going to do already. I started getting morning sickness, and i have it really bad, all day long. I was waking up to get sick. I have always been pro-choice but never thought i would have an abortion. Especially after what i went through to keep my daughter.(My father told me to have an abortion or get out, so i left.) But i know i have made the right decision and i know i have the respect of my close friend, family, and husband for making my difficult decision. And we will have another child when the time is right and i like to think maybe God will give me my baby, that i gave back to him yesterday.
