Abortion Story: Washington

Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on May 30, 2011.


In June 2006, my parents sent me to my moms friends for the summer to get me away from my ex boyfriend. I had skipped a period so I took a test and it came out positive. I didn't know what to do so I mentioned that I hadn't gotten my period so my mom's friend brought me to Target and got one from there. She made me walk around the store with the test so people would stare at me. I was afraid and this is how I was being treated. We got back to her house. I took the test. It read out positive again so she called my mom and she drove down that night so the next morning I woke up and they were already calling clinics. I couldn't believe they were doing that without talking to me. I wanted to keep the baby. I know I could have done it even though it was going to be hard. If I couldn't keep it, I wanted to place the baby up for adoption. They wouldn't let me so I went through the abortion. I felt everything they did. I cried the whole time. I wouldn't let my mom come see me in the recovery room. I didn't want anything to do with anyone. I felt so alone.... all I did was cry for months... every time March comes around I sit there and think, I would have a 4 year old running around.
