I was in my twenties, with a long horrifyng story of physical and psychological abuse from my parents. After years of struggling with highschool I finally finished it and entered to the University. That same year my father broke my nose and my family kicked me out of my house because it was my own fault to be beaten by my father. I went through reconstructive surgery. In the meantime my boyfriend thought I had too many troubles to continue with me. And I got pregnant. I didn´t tell anyone at first, and started researching for ANY place to have an abortion. It was illegal in my country then, so I stepped in some awful places. Finally I found a very comprehensive doctor who referred me to a clinic. I had to fill many papers claiming I came with an espontaneous abortion in progress to avoid being arrested. I asked my 3 weeks old baby for forgiveness, but I didn´t wanted to submit her/him to a life of abuse from my parents or a life in the streets, with an inmature father who wouldn´t make himself responsible for anything. The procedure was long and difficult due some irregularity in my uterus. I went depressed for months. But I found a way to finish some school education and landed nice jobs, found a nice responsible man. Now I am where I want to be. I have a daughter. And I thank my non-born baby for letting me avoid a miserable life for both of us.
