Abortion Story: Charlotte, NC

Submitted to Abort73 by a 17-year-old woman on December 14, 2011


I do not have much to say. I would just like anyone who is considering abortion for whatever reason, to reconsider. I recently had an abortion on October 10 and it was the worst mistake of my life. While I will be able to continue school and not have the responsibility of being a parent, the daily emotional turmoil I suffer was not worth it. Before your procedure, you make excuses, rationalize, and tell yourself anything to get through it; but you do not account for all the feelings and thoughts you will have after. Prior to my abortion I was pro-choice. I am now pro-life. I would just like to encourage anyone planning or thinking about abortion to look at the whole picture: there may be a thousand reasons why you are not ready for a baby, and only one reason to keep your baby, but it is the only one that matters. Everything happens for a reason and your baby will never need you anymore than he/she needs you now, to grow and develop. Please do not turn your back on your child like I did mine. I have to live with my decision every day, and it is not easy.
