Britta’s Story

First I want to start by saying that I have always been pro-choice but never thought I could ever do it myself. Well that all changed a couple days ago. I have a two year old daughter already. I am working on masters degree and just got a promotion at work. I am very strapped for money and it would not be fair for me to do that to a child. There is many other factors though. I was living with this guy and things were great. We talked about marriage and I thought we would be together forever. So when I first found out I was pregnant I thought ok I can possibly have another child. Well about two weeks ago my boyfriend started abusing me and then left me. I was pregnant and alone. I just can not afford two children as a single mother. I so want another baby but right now it just would not be fair. I got so angry with the anti-abortion protestors because they do not take into account the reasons women have for getting an abortion. It was hard enough to have an abortion without them harrassing me. I do not think a woman deserves to be harassed for something that she has good reasons for doing.

Having the abortion is something I will never forget. It was a horrible thing for a woman to have to go through but it is also a womans choice and should be treated that way!!!
