Abortion Story: Brooklyn
Submitted to Abort73 by a 21-year-old woman on January 13, 2013.
I'm 21 years old, and my story began when I was 17 and a senior in high school. This was the first time I was pregnant so I was scared and didn't know what to do. My boyfriend at the time was quick to throw abortion in my face. Being young and not wanting to keep an unwanted baby, I got an abortion. I wasn't affected by it. I just took it as a lesson learned and told my self I would never abort a baby again, but somehow along the road I got pregnant once again by the same guy. I was keeping my baby. I found out what I was having, which was a girl. I was so excited. I was 18 around the time, so I felt I was ready, but my boyfriend made threats to me. It got to a point where he was telling my family members he didn't want my baby so at 5 months I aborted my precious daughter who I named ma'kaiyah (mommy is sorry) just because I was forced to. After dealing with heart break, I left everything in god's hands. I then met my current boyfriend who I love to death. He also got me pregnant, but we agreed to get an abortion because he just came home. I respected his wish, but now I am 6 weeks pregnant and I want my child but just keep getting negative feedback. I work two jobs studying for my CNA certificate, and I believe god sent me this gift because he knows my baby will motivate me. Never really told anyone my story, but here it is. I refuse to get a 4th abortion.
