A Sad Day

Rest in peace, Dr Morgentaler.

Six years ago, not longer after Taylor and I first started dating, we accidentally got pregnant. Our relationship was very new and I was trying to get my business off the ground. Having been through pregnancy and five years of parenting I knew that I didn’t want to do it again at that time, so I decided to have an abortion. My procedure was on March 19th, 2007 at 9:15 (I looked it up in my old livejournal, haha). I’ve never regretted my decision, I did what was right for me and I don’t feel guilty or ashamed about it. I believe that every woman has the right to decide for herself if and when and how to have a baby, and I know I’m lucky to live in a place where I can make those decision, and when my daughters grow up they can too. So thank you, Dr Henry Morgentaler, for everything you’ve done for women in Canada. You will be missed.
