Abortion Story: Iowa City, Iowa
Submitted to Abort73 by a 45-year-old man on November 7, 2011.
I am a man. I obviously did not have the abortion, but someone I loved more than life did. I was 39, she was 36... We did not use any protection because she claimed she was infertile. She claimed this because she and her ex tried for years and could not have a child. About 5 months later she was pregnant. She was shocked and saddened, but I was so happy. She made it clear in minutes flat she did not want to have it and she was having an abortion. I loved her so I agreed... I fell to pieces, I began to dye my hair black and wear only black clothes. I still do 4 years later. She has never looked back, as far as I can tell... It took 4 years to release myself from the belief I was responsible for the death of my fetus because I didn't fight for its life. I realized there was nothing I could have done... Men, be aware of the consequences of your actions-including your faith in your "love" with the person of your dreams. A life my be the cost of your blindness, and you may be the only one of the two who suffers regret from the abortion.
