Abortion Story: Oregon

Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on January 6, 2012


Let me start off by saying that there hasn't been one day that has passed that I haven't thought of the little angel I once had inside me. It was November 2009 when I met my ex-boyfriend (lets call him Justin), and we were inseparable.... I had just turned 20 in October, so I was fairly young with 2 years left of college. Justin (age 23) and I started officially dating in February 2010. Usually I wait a couple months to test out the relationship before I sleep with anyone but with Justin it just felt right. At the end of February 2010 (same month we were official), I found out I was pregnant. The first thoughts that came to my mind when I saw the test results were my parents reaction. “I can’t tell them...they would kick me out. I would be a disgrace to the family. I just met the guy”. So I never told them (still till this day) and instead told Justin. The baby would be due in November 2010, a month after my 21st birthday. Justin informed me, “You know what we have to do right? We have to get rid of it.” I was against it at first but then he said the ultimate thing that made me go for it. "You know my parents wouldn't accept it. It would be a bastard child.” That really hit home and to be honest, it really hurt. So basically I was living off my parents (no college education, no legitimate income), Justin didn't want it because we were too young, my parents would be angry, and his parents wouldn't accept it. Great! Which is why I finally came to the agreement to have an abortion in March 2010. I feel like no one knows how much I regret it. I wish I could just go back in time. I feel like God won't forgive me and neither would my parents if I ever told them. So to those of you that are thinking about abortion...PLEASE consider it again.
