Good Days And Bad Days

I had an abortion 2 years ago

My decision to terminate the pregnancy was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, however I felt like it was the responsible thing to do in my situation for various reasons

Sometimes I feel at peace with it, and other times I have straight up panic attacks about it and I wonder if I made the wrong choice

Does it ever get any easier?????

Thank you for your insights. I too had issues with the man who impregnated me. I also know I made the right choice, but there are times when it is really hard.<br />

"But sometimes the best, most selfless things we can do for our children is to not have them yet"-I love this.

Yes, it gets easier. After my abortion I received a lot of abuse for my decision and they tried their hardest to make me feel horrible about myself. A few times it would get to me and I questioned my decision. But seeing how my fetus's father acted and his violence, I knew I made the right choice. I knew I had made the right choice before I'd had the procedure, but it just made my trust in my decision even stronger.<br />

No one ever said abortion is easy. It's easy for some women. But for many, many women, especially those raised in very religious environment, it's difficult. No one wants to have an abortion. No one wants to be pregnant with an unwanted child. But sometimes the best, most selfless things we can do for our children is to not have them yet.
