HORRY COUNTY SC (WBTW) —The US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe v. Wade case essentially gave the state the right to decide on an abortion, causing a variety of emotions throughout the country.

A woman in Holly County, who wants to remain anonymous, told News 13 about her decision and her own experience. She was appalled by her court decision, shocked and angry with her, so she said she wanted to share her story.

The woman said she was engaged when she was young. They weren’t trying to have a child. She said she was eventually pregnant, although she was doing three types of contraception at the same time.

She said her fiancé left the decision to her. She initially planned to have a baby, but she said she changed her mind.

“We weren’t married,” she said. “I hadn’t graduated from school, so it was the wrong time to have a baby. So I went ahead and I had an abortion.”

It was in 1974. The abortion wasn’t long, but she is grateful to them.

“Unless I don’t want to say this, I say it,” she said. “That was right at the time.”

When she heard about the Supreme Court’s decision, she said she regretted the women who no longer had the right to choose.

“It’s a personal thing that should be the right of women, young women,” she said. “It’s taking her right away.”

She added that if a decision had been made during pregnancy, it would have made the experience very rough.

“I’m wondering about my parents trying to raise my child to raise this child or for adoption, and I’m wondering if that child will be happy,” she said.

She currently makes some suggestions for women who are experiencing similar situations to her.

“The only thing I can tell them is to do their best and follow their hearts,” she said. “Make sure you are watching yourself … Watch yourself and pay attention to your physical symptoms. Always go to the doctor.”

She also said that women need to be very careful when choosing contraception. She said it was important to investigate and think about things.
