Here's a Blog for Choice post from someone who has personally experienced an abortion:
I was not ready to be a parent and I certainly did not love anyone – husband or neighbor – enough to have his kid. Hell, I’m still not ready to have them. I didn’t debate or weigh pros and cons, because there weren’t any. I was not going to have a baby, anyone’s baby, and that was the final answer on the subject.
This is not one of those super-syrupy, “ultimate regret” stories, so if you’re looking for sentimentality, best go log on to someone else’s blog right about now. I don’t want your feelings to be hurt, especially if you are a woman who regrets her choice to have an abortion at one time or another in your life.
Instead, let me tell you a truth which a lot of women will never admit, not even to themselves: I have never regretted my choice. I did not cry. I did not grieve. I had an abortion and I simply went on with my life.
