Abortion Story: Illinois, USA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on August 9, 2011.
I was 21. On June 18, 2009, two days before fathers day, I went to the clinic. My boyfriend took me. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. His parents were a big part of me doing this! I was almost 3 months along, my baby was due on Christmas! I remember going in there, and they would not let my boyfriend in, which made it even harder–sitting in a room with 10 other girls waiting to go into that white room. When I went in there, I fought as hard as I could because I didn't want to do it anymore, but they held me down. I heard and felt every little thing they did. Now, everywhere I look, all my friends, family, and his family are getting married and having kids, and it hurts, because I would have a wonderful little boy that would be 2 years old! I still think bout it every day and night. It's so hard. I miss him everyday!
