Natalie's Story*

I started dating this gentlemen and we hade been dating for a while. We hade gone to a Christmas party and went back to my place. It was the first time we had sex. We used a condom but it didn't help. I knew right away that things were not right. It didn't take long after that night for me to realize that I was pregnant. I was a little scared since we wore not in that much of a serous relationship. I didn't know how he would take to the fact that the one night that we were together I got pregnant.

The conversation with him went really good - he told me that he didn't want to have children, not because he was a jerk - it was because he was not ready to have them, but the choice was mine and what ever choice I was making he was going to support me. Being a single mother as is, I decided that the best thing for me to do was to have a abortion. I don't have any regrets for doing so. Nor do I wish that thing were different.
