Abortion Story: UK

Submitted to Abort73 by a 18-year-old woman on March 29, 2012.


The date I had an abortion was the 24th November 2008, and I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 13 years old and terrified at what was going on inside my body and around me. I was so ashamed of the whole situation and I got so depressed. I regret it every day... The person I slept with was 15 years old and so immature for his age, and neither of us would have been able to cope. I look at life now and wish the whole thing never happened, and I know that people say 'your past makes you who you are' or whatever, but I hate that. I hate missing a child that I decided to get rid of. I hate looking at other mothers and thinking 'that could be me.' I spoke to someone after it happened and I remember saying at the time, I'll never be able to forgive myself until I'm older and have children. But now I don't know if I'm able to have them. I had a miscarriage September 2011 and it just makes me think, 'have I missed my chance or what?'
