Abortion Story: Idaho
Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on October 26, 2011.
I got an abortion when I was 9 weeks pregnant. The father of the child didn't want it. He told me not to keep it and that if I did, he was going to have someone beat me up and kill the baby. I told him, no, I was going to keep it. He would always text me telling me not to tell anybody. I told some people and he started telling everybody that I was a liar and it wasn't his kid. I didn't know what to do. He was being mean to me. He didn't want it. I already had a one-year-old before the abortion and her dad wasn't around to help me. I couldn't have raised another kid by myself. I didn't know what to do so I decided to have the abortion. Then a week later, the father texts me and tells me to call him, but I never called him and he never said sorry. I hope he feels bad because I sure do. If I could go back, I would have not had the abortion. At the time, you feel like abortion will make things better for you but it really doesn't. That's all I have been thinking about. I don't think I will ever forget about it. I will never have an abortion ever again. If you are thinking about abortion, please just please think hard about it. Once it's done, you can never go back and change what you did. It will haunt you, and you will regret it everyday of your life. Please ladies, think about adoption, and if you think you can raise it, try to. Don't get an abortion, even if the dad is not around. You don't need him or anybody. Your baby will love you and that's all that should matter. I wish I could go back and change what I did. I hate feeling like this. Nobody knows I got an abortion. My parents didn't even know I was pregnant. I didn't wanna disappoint them by getting pregnant again. I only told a couple people so I don't really have anybody to talk to and the people that I do have don't know what I'm going through. They just make me feel worse. Everything they say is true, though I shouldn't have had the abortion. I shouldn't have listened to the baby's dad. I made the wrong choice. Please, ladies, don't have an abortion. Give it to a family that will want it or something. Just don't get an abortion. I hope the child I aborted knows that I love him/her and I'm truly sorry for what I did. I hope he/she doesn't hate me. Please think hard about abortion. It's not the right thing to do, no matter what the situation is that you're in. Please, ladies, don't do it. You will regret it everyday and you will never forget. :'(
