Back then she was with her boyfriend but she wasn’t sure that she wanted to be attached to her boyfriend at the time for the rest of her life. She knew that if she decided to keep the child, and if things didn’t work out, then the kid would have a really hard time dealing with everything and that is why she decided to have an abortion.
She went to Planned Parenthood to get the abortion. She didn’t wanted to tell her mother about the abortion and thus she had to pay out of her pocket to get the abortion. She also took some money from her boyfriend to get the abortion.
She also realized that if she didn’t take the anesthesia for the abortion, then she might be able to afford it. She also thinks that getting an abortion is very hard because of the pricing and it is really expensive. Sometimes people can’t afford it and they have to keep the child.
