    I Had An Abortion

    The only people that know are the people at the clinic, my husband, and a friend of mine I haven't seen in person in years who just happened to message me over Facebook the night before I took the pregnancy test. I want to die, I wish I had died. I think about it every day, think...

    I did it for all the wrong reasons. My boyfriend wasn't ready for a baby and I felt pressured to do it. In reality, I am obviously at fault because I didn't have the courage to speak up and take action on proceeding through the pregnancy until full term. I feel am anger towards...
