How many have you had? How old were you? Why did you choose abortion? Why not parenting or adoption? Do you regret them?

I've only had one. I was 16. I choose abortion for a lot of reasons, the main one being my three year old son. I had to think of what was best for him, and a mentally and emotionally unstable mom having a baby she didn't want and couldn't afford wasn't in his best interest. Also, I didn't want a second child, and I could not have afforded another one. My parents would have continued to support me and would have helped, but I didn't want another one, which is why I didn't choose to parent. I could have choosen adoption, my sister in law, who has infertility issues and had been trying a few years to concieve at the time, wanted me to have the baby and let her adopt it. She begged me, and when that didn't work, threatened. She didn't speak to me for almost a year afterwards. No, I have never had a single regret. I felt relief, freedom, I was grateful I was able to make that choice.
