I thought for a month before deciding to get an abortion
I was recently getting over a break-up. I made the wrong decision of getting with my ex's friend and we began having sex all unprotected, which was another bad choice. But then one night we were both drinking and we had sex again unprotected. We then stopped talking soon after.
I was worried about being pregnant so I took a test and it came up negative the first time. Then my period was almost a month late so I took another test and it was positive.
I couldn't believe it was happening. I didn't even talk to the guy anymore. So I told him and I thought for about a month on what the best decision would be. I was supposed to start college in the fall and he was constantly at work. I changed my mind almost every day...
I then finally made the decision to get an abortion. I'll never forget that day...it was the worst day of my life. I wanted to change my mind so bad, but it was too late. I still think about what could have been if I had been strong enough to raise my baby.
As someone who has gone through this experience I say go with your heart...abortion is not wrong, it's just not right for everyone.
