Abortion Story: Daytona Beach, FL

Submitted to Abort73 by a 23-year-old woman on March 28, 2012


I was a full-time college student and mother of a three year old when [I got] pregnant. Immediately, I became stressed because I was in a crazy position, and the stress caused me to feel very alone... After weeks of debating, I made an appointment to get an abortion. I was quickly told I didn't qualify for the pill because I was too far along in my pregnancy. I had two visits to the clinic, one for the ultrasound and February 18 was my scheduled abortion day. After I pulled up to the clinic, I was greeted by a group of four people with signs protesting, trying to get the young women including myself to change their minds. After sitting in the clinic waiting room with a group of women who all seemed not to care they were getting ready to end their child's life, I remember the nurse coming to get me. I laid down, and all I heard was this suctioning noise, and that noise still haunts me. I was 9-10 weeks when my baby was taken away from me. I left out of that place feeling empty and in pain. I'm suppose to be holding and loving a sixth month old baby right now, but all I'm left with is emptiness... Abortions are horrible please don't get one, please give your baby a chance at life or look at adoption as an alternative. It's been a year and month since my abortion. I still deal with post abortion stress which has caused me to be unhappy with my life and most of the time I have no control over my feelings. I passed the clinic one day on the way home, and it was hard driving because I was overtaken with emotions. I vowed to never ride by that place again. I made a horrible mistake, one that will haunt me forever.
