I knew at an early age that I never wanted to be pregnant, give birth or raise a child – and told my mother so when I was 8 years old. I started looking for a physician to tie my tubes when I was 21, but because I was unmarried could not find a doctor willing to perform the surgery until I was 31 years old (in 1988). I did have access to safe and affordable birth control from the beginning of my sexual activity at the age of 18. In 1984 I missed a period for the first time ever and immediately contacted a local abortion provider for a pregnancy test and immediately upon getting a positive test result scheduled an abortion for the following week. I had no physical problems as a result of the abortion other than cramping for about 12 hours afterwards and have had no emotional or mental illnesses develop as a result of my abortion. I knew it was the right choice for me then, know it now and have never had any regrets. All women need access to all health care options available, be it abortion or good pre-natal care. And all children should be born into the world wanted by the woman who bears them.
