My name is Tonya and for years I never thought that I
could have kids and then I met someone who was just a friend and after 4 months
together I got pregnant. I had an abortion because I didn't want to have a child
and he threatened me that he wouldn't be there for me if I had the child and he
only wanted me as a friend and not as a lover. I was hurt and I grew up with out
a dad in my life and I didn't feel that I wanted my child to go through that.
I am on unemployment and I had to sell everything I had, so having a
baby is something I couldn't do. I cried after I did it but, then after a while
I realized that I did the right thing and I started birth
control. For two months I took the birth control and I just found out I am
pregnant again. I am faced now with deciding to have another abortion and it's
very difficult. What can I do?

We need to reclaim abortion as a legitimate method of birth control and a natural
part of human reproductive cycles." -k. kaufmann
