I had an abortion because my partner was violentBy anonymous on 15/02/2010
Hello, I had an abortion two weeks ago. I never believed in abortion, but I felt it was the right thing to do. I had felt I was pregnant, but as I was doubling up on contraceptive pills I never actually thought I could be. I was in a violent relationship where my partner had 5 kids from 3 different mums. He had told me as a child he was sexually abused.
I spoke to someone confidentially as I was concerned that he only had contact with one of his children and even then he's going through the courts to see him. I finally picked up the courage to leave him and then two days before my 25th birthday I took a test as believed I was four days late and it said I was 5 plus weeks pregnant. I felt so disgusted with how my ex had treated me while I had been carrying something so special.
