Abortion Story Summary: In June 2015, I went for summer vacation to Honduras to visit my family. While I was in Honduras, I took Plan B to prevent a pregnancy, but it didn’t work. By the time I was able to get an abortion, I was 31 weeks pregnant, so my abortion cost $12,000, and I had to travel to New Mexico in less than a week. I am sharing my story and want for people out there know about it because I know they do not know about abortion. We, as women, we decide for our bodies, our lives and our futures. No one can decide for us, no law and no financial situation.
