Woman says she made the right choice, but experiences “grieving process”

From a woman who had an abortion but experiences something she calls a grieving process:

“I will have to reconsider my response as a grieving process, and one that has never ended. I made the absolute right choice to have an abortion, and I was relieved, even happy at the time. I have never once regretted the decision, yet there are feelings surrounding the loss of a potential child that remain with me.”
