Submitted to Abort73 by a 15-year-old woman on August 9, 2006.
I got pregnant and I was always very pro choice. I always stated I would never have an abortion but that was "their choice". They being the woman. I told my grandparents who I live with, and my mother. My boyfriend also told his family. We stated that we had already decided to keep our child. "Every child a wanted child"...The way I feel is "every abortion a wanted abortion". I was taken to a different town... I was afraid for me and my baby and I knew no one. I had no way to keep this baby... So I had an abortion. I figured after it was all over I would be "relieved". Well I wasn't. That was over nine months ago and I was terribly depressed and still am... I just know that if abortion was highly restricted or illegal this would never, ever happen to another girl. I support your cause.
