Abortion Story: Petaluma, CA

Submitted to Abort73 by a 49-year-old woman on April 7, 2012.


When I was 16, I was in a very serious motorcycle accident on March 31, 1979. At the time, I was pregnant but had no idea. The accident nearly took my leg. I was in surgery for hours that night and in intensive care the following two weeks. I finally was put into my own room (open wound isolation) when one day my orthopedic doctor came in and told me that "we have a situation." I was pregnant. He told me that in his "professional opinion," it was imperative that I have an abortion as soon as possible, or risk losing my leg. I didn't want this at all. I was hysterical with my boyfriend, begging him to help me stand up to the doctor so we could keep our baby. He slapped my face and told me I had to go through with [the abortion]. From then on the whole thing was arranged so my parents wouldn't know. They had a social worker come in, and she got me signed up on the state Medi-Cal program so that they would pay for it, and further hide it from my parents. Next week would be the anniversary of this event, 4/21/79. My child would be 33 years old. It's so sad, so wrong, and I was so young. I trust in God my Savior to forgive and to heal as he has for me already. He can for others too. He is a very big God.
