October 10, 2010 by ooioo This is also my secret. Believe me, no one WANTS an abortion. Its an awful decision to have to make. I was very angry with myself, even though it was an accident and I had taken precautions. I was angry because I felt that I could have prevented it somehow, even though I felt i had already done everything in my power to do so. I am still with my boyfriend, and I don’t regret not telling him. It’s my body, and my choice weather or not he should know. It’s done, and I want it behind me. It IS behind me! If I had told him, I feel that it would be the elephant in the room for the rest of our time together. We are very much in love, and I feel that he is my soulmate. I don’t regret my decision at all. Every day, I am thankful for people who support a woman’s right to choose. I am thankful for the wonderful people that work at that clinic, who assured me that I would be ok and held my hand and took care of me. I am not ready for a child; financially, emotionally, in any way whatsoever. Neither is this planet. Do you realize how severely overpopulated this place is? Also, my boyfriend and I decided early on that neither of us wanted children, and if he found out I think he would be more understanding than most. Also, having to have the man’s “consent” sounds so completely backwards and outdated. What if it was the man that wanted the abortion and not you? They ask you multiple times at the clinic if you are doing this out of your own choosing or if you feel that someone else is pressuring you to do it. There’s no reason to be ashamed of your body and what you choose for yourself.
