Abortion Story: Philadelphia, PA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on November 9, 2011.
I had an abortion in June of this year, and every day I live with more and more regret as the time nears for my projected due date. I would've been eight months if I wasn't a coward. The father of the baby was supportive and wanted the baby, as did I. Rewind to a few months before I got pregnant; I was laid-off and had no money to support this child. I made over five appointments and cancelled each one because I couldn't do it. The one I went to, I saw the ultrasound and there was my baby moving around. Instantly, I was in-love. I ran out of that office to my boyfriend's house to tell him of the news. He was ecstatic. I was certain that I wanted my baby, but somewhere down the line, I chose to end its life, and for that I am a murderer. If I could go back and change things, I would've kept my child. If you're reading this and unsure, please find strength to keep your baby because if not, you will forever be changed and not in a good way. I long to hold, to touch, to smell my baby. This December would be the birth of my baby. I pray to God that I am forgiven for my sin against Him and that my baby is safe in the hand of my Father in heaven and that my baby does not hate me for my betrayal. All I can say is, NEVER AGAIN WILL I DESTROY A PRECIOUS LIFE GOD HAS BLESSED ME WITH. Empty, sad, alone, hurt, disconnected, desperate, miserable, depressed, angry, disgusted, sorry are just a few emotions I feel. Think before you do something you cannot undo, ladies and gents. Life is the only choice. If you can't shoot, bludgeon, stab, maim a stranger, then how can you do it to your perfect baby?
