Abortion Story: Miami, FL

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on August 3, 2011.

I had an abortion when I was only 15 years old. At first I thought it was the best choice, not only for myself but for my family and boyfriend at the time as well, but of course, it wasn't so. My views about abortion have always been confusing. There are just so many people with a story to tell and they justify this cruel act. A month after my abortion, I began to feel the guilt, the remorse but worst of all, the emptiness crawling in my womb and clinging onto me. I made many suicide attempts but I never had the courage to do so. I promised myself I would never resort to that drastic solution again! No matter the circumstance. I am 20 years old today, it's been 5 years since, and still the guilt remains. Every October I feel it, the guilt and trauma. I was so young and naive, I felt pressured by my parents, my boyfriend, by everybody! I forgot to think about what I wanted and what that baby could have been in my life.
