Gretchen’s Story

My name is Gretchen and I am now 25 years old. Quickly nearing 26. When I was 19, I got pregnant. It was unplanned, and very much unwanted. I was using birth control at the time, so it came to me as a large surprise. My boyfriend at the time, who is now my husband was not ready to become a parent and neither was I. I decided with the help of him that I was going to have an abortion. There were no if’s and’s or but’s about it. I made my appointment and went through with it. I have no regrets and I am 100 percent happy with the choice that I made to this day.
If I did not choose to have an abortion I would not have my daughter who is the light of my life.
