JP, 20

I am in the middle of my college career, my husband is in the military and also going to college, and we live in a studio apartment on campus. We have neither the time, the money, nor the room to take care of a child. I went to the emergency room for bleeding and abdominal pain. The pregnancy was supposedly healthy, but I do live in a state that condemns abortion altogether. My husband and I decided together that we would abort. He supported me the whole way - the protestors outside of the clinic were saying, "You have other choices." What those people don't understand is, we aren't stupid or ignorant, we just can't take care of a baby, and we won't force ourselves to. And we won't force that child to live a difficult life, either.
