The singer describes the pain of the process as “excruciating” and admits to have been crying and sobbing until it was all over.”
“It took hours, and I don’t remember how it ended, but I do, twenty years later, remember the pain of it, and the fear,” she recalled.
Of the decision to abort the baby, the singer wrote, “I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.”
