Rebecca Rizzi was five weeks pregnant and desperately looking for a way out — any way out.
Despite her qualms and personal opposition to abortion, she had reluctantly made up her mind: Terminating the pregnancy was for the best.
Rizzi setup an appointment at a Planned Parenthood in Tempe, Ariz., last May and subsequently drove there to learn more about the procedure. As she was en route to the clinic, her mind raced, as she secretly wanted to find a way to escape an act that she believed deep in her heart was morally wrong.
“I felt I had to do it,” the 24-year-old told TheBlaze. “It was a situation where I hadn’t talked to my family in a long time — same with my friends.”
