I had an abortion because my boyfriend really did not want to have a baby.
Editor’s note: Thank you for sharing your feelings with us...There seems to be a deep sadness in you. You had to make a difficult decision between your boyfriend and your baby, a decision that many women feel under pressure to make. I wonder how much you struggled to deal with it alone afterwards and whether your relationship has survived this experience, given your sense of sadness and the clarity you have about your feelings. Having been through an anniversary date, it may be the right time for you to consider our recovery programme, ‘The Journey’ to help you grieve your loss and find a way of remembering your baby. Contact your nearest centre, ring the helpline or use Online Advisor for some confidential care and support. We’ll be thinking of you.
