Abortion Story: Ireland
Submitted to Abort73 by a 45-year-old woman on August 18, 2011.
I had an abortion last Friday–at 45, recently broken up with my partner and with 3 grown children in their 20's. From the moment I found I was pregnant, all I could think of were reasons I couldn't have a baby. I bitterly regret what I have done. I never for one moment thought about how it would affect me, it was the worst decision I have ever made in my life. I never told a single person that I was pregnant, I wish now I had talked to someone. Not one single day will go by when I do not think about the innocent life that I chose so easily to destroy and how selfish I was. I will have to live with the guilt and regret of this for the rest of my life and deservedly so.
