I had an abortion last week. I was almost six weeks along. It was and is the right decision for me.

My ex came along for support and to help pay for the abortion. It was the right decision for us. I am a student and I would have been a single parent with no job.

The procedure wasn't physically painful, just emotionally hard. But grief and guilt are NOT the same thing. And although I feel grief for a path I chose not to go down right now, I know some day I will make a wonderful mother.
