Abortion Story: Upland, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 16-year-old woman on October 17, 2011.


I'm 16, and I had an abortion on September 30, 2011. My dad found out, and the second he knew, he was threatening me and forcing me to get an abortion. My boyfriend just graduated from high school, and he was so scared that I was pregnant, but he told me that he loved me no matter what choice I made. His mom wanted me to keep it. I have not spoken to my mom in five years. Every day I would not know what to do. Time was running out, and the appointment was here. The last words that my boyfriend told me was that he loves me and that it's better to give your child everything it needs without struggles. A part of me understood. I got to the clinic at Planned Parenthood. It was the worst procedure of my life, something I will never go through AGAIN! Walking into the room were they did it, I simply stood quiet with tears, and before I knew it, I was completely asleep. And once I woke up, I was yelling, crying helpless. I couldn't believe what I just had done. Everything gets to me. I cry about everything. I have nightmares and can't sleep. Sometimes I dream I'm holding hands with a baby. For anybody that is considering abortion, think it through wisely, please, because your life will never be the same. It will be on your mind day and night as it is for me. I lock myself in my room and cry for hours, thinking what a cruel horrible thing I've done. If I could go back, I would keep it and if I couldn't, I would place for adoption... I feel so guilty for not giving an innocent thing a chance in the world. If you are considering an abortion, learn more about what it is–pictures, videos, and stories. There's always another solution than killing it! And do not let anyone overpower your say in what your choice is. You just gotta believe in yourself. I regret everything so please, don't be like me. Make a change.
