Dare to be true: nothing can need a lie: A fault, which needs it most, grows two thereby. ~ George Herbert
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Have an abortion.
I was going to write something less equivocal here, like how it would be a hard decision…blah blah blah. But it wouldn’t be. I wouldn’t even think twice.
I had an abortion when I was married to my first husband. I already had one child by him. The pattern of abuse, reconciliation, honeymoon period and abuse had already been established in our relationship, and I knew without a shadow of a doubt that if I had that child, I would never escape him. I never regretted that decision, never looked back from it. I knew it was the right decision, then and now.
I feel the same now. I love my life, exactly as it is. I would not allow an unplanned pregnancy to change that.
