Abortion Story: Poughkeepsie, NY

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on May 6, 2011.


I had an abortion when I was 18. I was graduating high school and was so excited so a bunch of my friends threw me a huge party for my graduation. I met this guy there and we started talking. At that time I thought he was really cute. After a few drinks I ended up staying the night at his house. I didn't know he was friends with my best friend at the time. The next day was my high school graduation. Two weeks after my graduation I missed my period and started to get worried. I took a pregnancy test and it came up positive. I ended up calling out of work for the next week and went to the doctors to make sure. I was pregnant. Now I had a choice to make and I didn't know what to do. It took me 6 months to tell my parents everything. When I told the guy I was pregnant he didn't believe me and didn't want anything to do with it. I was getting pressured and I had an abortion. It was the worst experience of my life. I felt everything from the pill they made me take the night before. It was horrible and ever since then I regret it so much. I think about it every day and I cry because of the decision I made and it wasn't the right one. It wasn't what I wanted. Now as mothers day comes around I get upset and think about how much my life would have been different and regret everything I did.
