Abortion Story: New York

Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on October 8, 2011.

A few months ago I was dating a guy that was married but separated. In the back of my mind I thought I couldn't get pregnant because I was irresponsible in a previous relationship and I thought that if I could, I definitely would have been by now. The only thing that made me take a test was because I hadn't had my period in a long time. I went to throw the test out thinking it was negative, but I saw the faintest second line. I bought a different test and was shaken to my core. I couldn't believe it. I told the father. He said, "get rid of it." I was so hurt and scared but I didn't want to raise a baby alone. I had the abortion and I regret it every day. I wonder what the baby would have looked like. I wish I could hold it. Before the abortion I felt alive but scared. Now I feel empty, hollow and numb. I can never reverse my choice.
