I terminated a pregnancy that resulted from a boyfriend who woke me up having sex with me. We had already used the only condom we had earlier in the evening. When it dawned on me that he wasn't using a condom, I told him to stop because he was scaring me but he wouldn't until it was too late. I had missed some of my BC pills but I was young and dumb and thought I couldn't have gotten pregnant that one time without a condom. I wish that I would have had access to the morning after pill but this happened before that was readily available.

Now our fascist governor abbott wants to get rid these other options women have to terminate pregnancies besides abortion. It's always been about control and their hatred of women who are strong, independent and uninterested in them.
Their message to prevent abortions has never been directed toward the # ! cause of pregnancy - MALE ejaculation.

I am not ashamed and have no regrets. I knew that I didn't want to have children. It is just part of my story that consists of men forcing themselves on me in different degrees.

It is infuriating and nauseating Praek3.
