Abortion Story: Raleigh, NC
Submitted to Abort73 by a 20-year-old woman on November 4, 2011.
About 12 hours ago I got an abortion. And I can tell you one thing, NEVER AGAIN. I went in at 9 weeks 5 days. I had just moved across the US away from my family for my boyfriend of almost four years and his new job. I got pregnant about 2 weeks after I got here. (Bad Luck) I have no insurance or family so I thought an abortion would be the best idea. They only gave me an Ibuprofen and a muscle relaxer and I can tell you that was not cutting it. The entire procedure was like 5-8 min and you could feel the metal tubes they put inside you and the pressure. But the number one thing I remember is the crack sound... I don't know if that is normal but I swear I heard it with the last tube. I can't say that I'm not happy to not be pregnant now, but to go through that traumatizing experience was not worth it. I would have rather gone through the pain of child birth rather then the pain I'm going through now.
