Abortion Story: USA
Submitted to Abort73 by a 32-year-old woman on February 22, 2013.
I'm now a mother of three. I suffered the pain of a miscarriage in 2010, and I have been married since 2005. My abortion was well before I met my husband, 14 years ago. I just couldn't provide the father for that baby that I can for my kids today. My boyfriend at the time was a leech, and I knew I couldn't have a baby with him. But not a month goes by that I don't think about the abortion, or the cold winter day I had it done-- two days after my birthday. A birthday does not pass without my thinking of where I was that fateful day. I count the years, as to how old a child I would have today, and wonder how his or her life would be. An abortion stays with you forever, regardless of the reason for having it done. I wish every person could understand, how the weight of abortion is carried around every day for the rest of their life.
