Abortion Story: Canada

Submitted to Abort73 by a 17-year-old woman on July 4, 2016.

On June 28, 2016, I had an abortion. I found out I was pregnant and was so scared, wondering what I would do. A choice like this really stays with you forever. I'm 17-years-old, turning 18. I work a minimum-wage job, my car just broke down, and I'm struggling financially. I have been with my boyfriend, the father of my baby, for seven months. He's the love of my life. Everything about him makes me tingle. He was extremely calm when I told him I was pregnant. I was so scared of becoming a mother at 17, and he was scared too. He is only 19. He told me how he felt about it and that he wanted to abort. At first, I thought that sounded like a good idea. It’s just that I feel I could have given that baby a good life. I was 10-weeks pregnant when I got my abortion. I had grown to love this unborn baby inside of me, and I couldn't help it. I kept pushing off the appointment and eventually had an argument with my boyfriend about it. So I pushed through what I was feeling, and I went through with the procedure. It was a traumatizing and painful experience. I think about what I have done and I cry, because I just want to hold my baby in my arms.
