Abortion Story: Manheim, PA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old man on August 25, 2014.
For the second night in a row, I lay here crying about how my beautiful baby is going to be killed by a vacuum. My girlfriend is going on 18, and I am 19. We wanted to have kids eventually—just not this soon. But once I found out she was pregnant, I got so happy because I felt that I now had the chance to be the father for my child that my father never was for me. We didn't tell her mom at first in fear of how she would react. Now that we’ve told her, she has talked my girlfriend into getting an abortion against my will. I beg her so much every day to keep it, but they just call me selfish and say she deserves someone better because I don't support her decision. The hurt I feel is indescribable. It's like someone is holding a gun to my child and saying, “I’m killing your kid while you sit and watch, and there is nothing you can do about it.” I feel so betrayed. I even offered to pay for everything and take the baby once it is born, and she can go live her life. But in good old America, selfishness seems to be king. Now I have to live with this thought for the rest if my life—that my beautiful child was murdered, and I couldn't do anything about it but cry myself to sleep. Don't have abortions. There are people who would love to have a child and some people don't realize and just kill a part of themselves like it is nothing.
