Sarah’s Story

Well, one year ago today I had my abortion. It was the best decision I have ever made. The father was an old boyfriend from 5 years before. He called me to tell me he was getting divorced. We got together, talked, and started to fall for each other again. Then I missed a period, took 2 home tests, went to the doctor and got a blood test. I was pregnant. At first, we were excited. He told me he wouldn’t let me down. A few days later, he told me that he was thinking about going back to his wife. I was crushed. So I weighed my options. I told the father I was so miserable that I wanted to die and that I was thinking about aborting. He said to me “Why don’t you go kill your baby, then you’ll really know how it feels to want to die.” He clearly didn’t know what he wanted and was totally emotionally bankrupt. I didn’t want to be tied to him for the rest of my life.
So, I made the appointment. After the procedure, I felt a weight lift off my shoulders. Now a year later, I do not have an ounce of regret for my decision. I did what was best for everyone. I still think about and love my baby and I know my baby understands my choices.
