Abortion Story: California
Submitted to Abort73 by a 15-year-old woman on June 6, 2011.
When I was 14, I got pregnant by my boyfriend and ran away so my parents wouldn't know. But I came back and was strongly pressured into abortion by my parents who told me I had no choice. I didn't have a say, so I went through with it. When I was in there alone, they took an ultrasound and told me I was at 7 weeks and 2 days. This touched my heart and I tried to stay unemotional as they took my blood and gave me an IV. The whole time I was on that operating table I wanted to scream and cry and say, "No please don't kill my baby." It was the most emotionally painful thing I've ever gone through. Me and my boyfriend cry about it everyday but are still together... But he doesn't know the heartbreak the mother feels when her child is no longer safe inside her and she is the one that let it happen in silence. I'll never stop missing my baby and wishing i had done more to protect him and love him. I'm so sorry, my baby. I love you. Forgive me.
