Wednesday’s Words from Women

Over one-third of women of reproductive age have an abortion by the age of 45. However, women who have chosen abortion are often absent from the public debate. In order to break the silence surrounding abortion, we will be featuring real stories from real women each Wednesday on our blog.

I’m currently enrolled in Nursing School. I’ve come a long way and when I found out that I was pregnant, I was very scared but knew what I had to do in order to provide for myself and my family in the future. I’m grateful that I have this option and I’d like to thank the clinic for their utmost respect and professionalism.

Although I would love to be a mother someday, I believe that right now is not the right time for me to have a baby. There are so many things that I would like to accomplish before I have a child. I would also like to be financially stable and have my own place before I can even think of bringing someone else into this world. This is by far the hardest and most difficult decision that I’ve ever had to make, but I know I’ve made the right one. Thank you for helping to make it possible.
