I do not have any regrets. I am 24 years old, young and had an adventure in front of me and a baby would only take it all away. Worse, I was no longer with the father at that time. Being in a country where abortion is illegal, I had to scout for a place for such a procedure and I was afraid I might end up at some quack's office. However I had sources about a clinic which actually provides a reliable service (but still without the proper papers).
I took the risk, because I know I'd never be able to love this child or raise him/her the right way. I may be labelled cruel, heartless and damned to hell, but I'd do it all over again if I had to. One thing's for sure is, I'll never make this same mistake ever again. So my advice to all those who are considering abortion, just do it if you know you cannot take it physically and emotionally. And once you do it, don't ever look back.
