    I was 23 years old when I had an abortion.

    It was the most difficult decision, but as it turned out it wasn't my choice. I am now 59 years old and still think of what happened. At the time I was living with my boyfriend. My doctor had recommended that I stop taking the birth control pill, because of having bad migraine...

    When I had my abortion, I wasn't ready for motherhood, financially, mentally and physically. The thought of being somebody's mom, never crossed my mind. When I got pregnant again, a few years later, I changed my mind about being a mom. And planned to have my beautiful daughter...

    I have been trying to tell myself

    for years that "no one really knows what they would choose unless they were in my exact shoes"... it was a horrible situation, and things were getting worse. I couldn't find myself bringing a child into a situation like that --- so I didn't.

    And I was thinking about him when I chose to have an abortion. If someone has never walked in my shoes, lived my life, or know what I was thinking or feeling at the time, then they shouldn't judge. My unborn was my loved one. And I aborted him. I was doing what was best for him...

    I had an abortion at the age of 14.

    Having sex so young was my first mistake, I wish I had waited and the abortion was another mistake. I wonder all the time about my baby, and 13 years later even still cry myself to sleep. I hope he/she forgives me. I felt it was the best decision for us both at the time
