This story appears in the comments section of a New York Times article titled “Let’s Talk About My Abortion and Yours.”
The first time I became pregnant I was married and on birth control! Surprise! My husband at the time was terrified of having a child and truth be told so was I.
That was my first abortion, and no I don't regret it and never did. I had two more abortions, both were from having un-protected sex yes I'm one of those people they talk about who are careless, and I just happen to be extremely fertile. I now have three children with my 2nd husband, all of those children were planned and are loved.
I don't regret any of those abortions, and frankly it's not anyones business, the rest of my medical history is nobodies business either.
And that to me is the heart of this issue, this is an individual, medical decision, and people who's religion I don't ascribe to don't have the right to tell me or anyone else what to do with there bodies.
