I can’t believe this choice is being taken away from us

Updated: Jan 4, 2023

I spent the first night of my son’s life with only him in the hospital, as my husband was tired and needed to go home to sleep. I didn’t have a lot of help or support from him.

My beautiful son was around 18 months old when I knew we hadn’t been safe. I immediately went to the store and tried to get the Plan B pill, with no luck. Then I knew I needed plan c so I went to Anchorage and with my aunt’s help of watching my son, I tired to get an abortion. I couldn’t. There were no options that didn’t require some pre-planning.

I finally found a place in Kenai. I cried in the car because I had to stop breastfeeding my son and I didn’t want this to affect his life. I knew my husband wasn’t a helpful partner with one kid, I couldn’t imagine two. I could only imagine being a single mom of two. I’m so sad I wasn’t in the position to be able to have another kid and I can’t believe this choice is being taken away from us.
