I’ve had three abortions. The first one happened in 1999, when I was 21 years old. I was in college, and I fell in love with this artist who I thought was committed to me. We had sex without a condom. I went to LA to do an arts internship and he accompanied me, but then he took a trip to his home in Chicago. He said he would be back. During that time, I found out I was pregnant. I told him, and I never heard from him again.
