I was 18 years old about to graduate from a tech school and get my cosmetology license, the dad was in college and we made the choice we couldn’t afford a child at the moment. I had abortion done 3 days before my state testing, After my surgery I was so relieved. My procedure lasted about 3 minutes. I got home and ate some soup and watched movies. I went on to graduate high school two weeks later. I am now enrolled in our local college. The scariest part of the whole abortion was the protesters and the crisis pregnancy center I got tricked into going to first. I called and said could I get pricing on abortion and they said they could not discuss that over the phone, they said I could come up for a consultation that day. It was literally not even a block down from the abortion clinic I had gotten my abortion at. It looked like a hospital. They had a gynecologist and an ultrasound tech. They gave me a pregnancy test and ultrasound. After it was over I asked when I could get the procedure done and they sat me down with a video telling me after my abortion I would turn to drugs & alcohol. I would get pregnant again to cope with the fact that i murdered an innocent baby. I would be depressed and have suicidal tendencies. They were all lies. I am on nuvaring, considering the IUD. I do not feel depressed about what I have done. Me and the father still talk on a regular basis and are at peace with our decision.
