Elizabeth: I made the right choice

My name is Elizabeth. I had an abortion because I was raped. I was raped by someone who I trusted and confided in all the time. I was raped by someone who I thought would never raise his hand to kill a fly. I was raped by someone who I had known for ten good years as my best friend. He was high on drugs when he did the inhumane act to me.
There was no way I was going to keep the pregnancy. I knew I couldn’t bring a baby in this world that was conceived out of so much hate. I hated him so much for what he did to me. Never in my life have I ever felt dirty but after that horrible day I felt so dirty.
After some serious soul searching, I made the decision to have an abortion. It was the hardest decision of my life but I knew it had to be done. I don’t regret the decision I made because I know it was right for me.
