I had an abortion at 19.

I had an abortion at 19. It was the right decision for me. I was at University. I finished my degree, started my career, eventually met my husband and had two lovely children. A baby at 19 would have ruined my life. I'm so glad I live in a country with access to legal, free, safe abortions.
