Abortion Story: San Antonio, TX
Submitted to Abort73 by a 22-year-old woman on April 9, 2012.
I was raised in a devout, Catholic family and even volunteered at pro-life centers. I've always been passionate about embracing life and protecting the unborn. I turned 18 and went nuts - was drunk all the time and heavily addicted to methamphetamine. I didn't care about anything. Shocker, I turned out pregnant with my life of promiscuous irresponsible behavior. I put off the abortion until I was 15 weeks. Disgusting. I continued this downward spiral until I became pregnant again. I never thought about abortion with this pregnancy. I'm the mother of a perfect 2 year old son, and I look at him every day and wonder how I could have killed a child. If you have any type of conscience, the regret will never go away. By choosing abortion you are in turn choosing a heavy burden to carry. A child is always a thing of joy - something I never fully understood until I gave birth. My life is complete although my heart still hurts. It's hard to talk about this in detail. Choose life.
