Abortion Story: South Africa

Submitted to Abort73 by a 19-year-old woman on September 26, 2011.


I just had an abortion 2 months back. The worst part is I never told anyone about it, not even my boyfriend. I did it because my father is not working and my boyfriend also is not working and is from a poor background. I knew he impregnated me on purpose and the 1st day I told him I was pregnant, he just looked me in the eye and gave my foetus a name after his mum. I wanted to keep my baby with all my heart but just found myself considering abortion because I'm still at college. I did it, without telling anyone. I told my boyfriend that I had a miscarriage. We spent 2 months without having sex because I felt like its the least I can do to mourn my baby. I think about it day and night, cry day and night. I never went counseling, nor shared it with anyone. I believe that's why it gets worse everyday. I am dying inside.
