Abortion Story: Spokane, WA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 29-year-old woman on April 3, 2012


I had an abortion 8 years ago, and it haunts me every day. I was 21. I already had a one-year-old boy from a previous relationship, and I got pregnant with my new boyfriend, whom I was madly in love with. I was afraid that having another baby at that time would make life way harder than it already was. My boyfriend told me it was up to me, that it was my decision. I wish he hadn't said that. I should have told him it was his decision too. I have a feeling he would have told me to keep it. I wish he did. I wish I did. I regret my abortion every day. Even though I am now married (to a different man) and now have two beautiful boys, 9 and 3, I still ache for the baby whose life I so selfishly ended. I am sooo sorry for what I did. I think about it every single day and have not forgiven myself. I don't know if I ever will. That baby would have been seven-years-old now. I am so sorry. I am so so so sorry.
