I am so glad I made the choice right for everyone at the time abortion story
He begged me not to get an abortion but I knew what was best. We had no money, no help, etc. I wasn't going to bet that in 8 months things were going to turn around and everything was going to be perfect. Knowing we needed good jobs, medical insurance right away, a new apartment, tons of baby items like a crib, mattress, clothes, diapers, clothes, and so much more.
I knew my boyfriend would end up quitting school ensuring we kept a dismal future. I knew an abortion was the only way to fix it. I made the appointment, the initial one. Planned parenthood was a lifesaver for us, they had funds available for free abortions and we qualified. I filled out the paperwork, and saw a counselor, who explained all of my options.
I went home for a one week wait, which was mandatory so I could think about it.
The day before the procedure I went out and drank at a bar. I had a ton of liquor that night, because I was scared. The next day we went in and I had it done.
Now we have been married for almost 11 years and have 3 kids. I was right about waiting 8 months. It took my dh and I almost 2 full years to get things in order.
My dh thinks I had the abortion out of fear, but he is wrong. I had it because it was the right thing to do and the most responsible thing to do. Even with adoption, we had no way for me to get medical for the pregnancy no way to get prenatals and both of us did not want to add another child into the system, there are so many kids waiting to be adopted, no way would we have added to it.
Anyway, sometimes it is the right thing. My dh was thinking with his heart, ie it will somehow work out and I was using my brain, I knew it couldn't work.
