Abortion Story: England

Submitted to Abort73 by a 17-year-old woman on September 11, 2011.

I was 16 when I got pregnant, a year ago on the 15th September. That day was the worst day off my life. I'm a very 'strong' person, I hate to burden people with my problems and I feel like a need to be independent (its a bad family trait). I have never told my parents that I had an abortion. My boyfriend of 2 years told his parents. They agreed abortion was best. I hated the idea and said no so many times. Eventually, the day before the abortion, I said yes. The next day I felt like I was being swept off my feet to have the abortion. I went through with it. (Also a week before I lost my last grandparent which added to my grief) A year later and I hate myself, part of me hates my boyfriend and I can't stand to be near his parents. I regret it every day. I wish I had had the courage to tell my parents and ask people for help. But I'm too proud. Every time I try to talk to my boyfriend he doesn't want to hear the truth, so I lie.
