Abortion Story: Auckland, NZ

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on August 15, 2011.


I was 17 when I found out that I was pregnant. I didn't know what to do. My boyfriend and I were still in high school, no part time jobs, no car, still living with our parents. It was hard. The only people that knew about it at the time was my mum and boyfriend. Mum pressured me into having an abortion, but I can't blame her because it was I that went into the doctor's room and told her I wanted the abortion, not knowing that I would have to live with this emptiness in my life. My boyfriend said he would respect whatever decision I made. When we were at the hospital, I remember him saying that even if I'm in the operating room and they hadn't done anything yet, if I wanted to back down, he'd be there for me. I felt that same way when I was in the room. I just wanted to go. Seeing the tears in my boyfriends eyes - broke my heart but I stayed in there. I opened my legs and let the doctors remove this lil miracle from inside me. I feel nothing but regret each and every time I see other teenagers with their children. Two and a half years later and it's still the biggest mistake I have ever made.
