I had an abortion at 30+ years old because I wasn’t ready for the responsibility nor was I financially capable to sufficiently take care of another human being as I was underemployed at the time. After deliberate thinking and talking it over with my mom and the father, I decided that the best choice for me was to terminate and that’s what I did. I was fortunately able to find a low-cost option in the city of Chicago. the only thing I regret was not speaking to friends that I had whom could have made the process smoother and possibly found a better option to have my procedure completed in the city.
