I may have been too young, but I would rather have kept the baby than live with this regret every single day...

Abortion Story: San Diego, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on July 13, 2015.

I was 7 weeks and 6 days when my boyfriend and I decided to have an abortion. We didn't talk to anyone and did everything ourselves. We gave up our unborn child because we were children ourselves. I got pregnant at 17. Lying in the doctor's office was one of the most difficult things ever. As I was lying there crying, I debated whether I should just get up and leave. But the nurse holding my hand kept telling me I was doing the right thing and that I was too young for a kid. I may have been too young, but I would rather have kept the baby than live with this regret every single day. Every time I go to the doctor I think about it. Every time the topic of pregnancy or abortion comes up I become depressed. Having the abortion was the hardest thing I have ever done. After the abortion, I got a tattoo saying, "I may not get over it, but I can get through it.” That's something I have to constantly remind myself.
